Roll the Tide

for SATB chorus a cappella (2'50")
“Roll the Tide” is a short, a cappella quasi-spiritual excerpted from the larger work Waiting…, based on poems by Elisabeth T. Eliassen, that was premiered by the Sanford Dole Ensemble in San Francisco in 2012. Here we have two subsequent performances, including the Pacific Mozart Ensemble in the audio excerpt above, and in the video, 2011 Kodály Summer Institute Chorus at Holy Names University, conducted by László Matos.
