Notes for Woven Together
All the non-English words are Spanish.
Recitation of names during the second movement, Song of Remembrance:
This movement is a tribute to the members of our community no longer with us. This may be accomplished in a number of different ways:
If you don't like these ideas, please feel free to create your own way.
Please encourage your pianist to embellish movements three and four, All Wound Up and Woven Together, as they are able. The parts written are only meant to be a guide.
If possible, there should be percussion in the first movement, The Call. I recommend hand percussion instruments such as djambes, congas, etc. The percussionist would start playing at bar 21 and play until the end of the movement. Though it is not written in the score, the percussionist should also play during bars 87-102 of the fourth movement, Woven Together.
If you want to use percussion in the other movements, I suggest a drum set player who can play the various styles.
If the sections with doubling are too much for your chorus, please make edits that are appropriate. In the fourth movement, Woven Together, the soprano doubling can be solved by having the soloist sing the top part.
