Description

 

This piece features Haitian rhythms and challenging harmonies. The treble setting uses a text about “harmonizing life’s activities” – dance being one. A great festival or concert piece for developing choirs, well worth the preparation efforts!

Translation of Haitian Creole text:

A time to plant

A time to harvest

A time to work

A time to party

Today we will rest

Today is party time

Color guards, lead on

Musicians, rock on


Beat the drums, blow the trumpet

Play the violin and clarinet

Musicians, singers, let’s rock on

Let’s sing, danse meringue and kalinda

Today is the big feast

We’ll party like there’s no tomorrow

Without danger, nor fear

We’ll sing and dance

As life requires it…
