WIDE OPEN SPACES
By Sarah Quartel
for TTBB and piano
Like the original version for SATB voices, this new male-voice arrangement of Wide Open Spaces reflects on the journeys and adventures to be found in the wide opens spaces within ourselves and in the world around us. The uplifting melody is passed from the tenors to the baritones before the piece opens out into an expansive texture with rich harmonies. Quartel introduces a playful episode of scat singing before a resolute final chorus brings this evocative piece to a peaceful and serene close.
