Overview

(Shawnee Press). Long ago, an argument arose between mountains and rivers, stars and ants, lions and bears on the nature of God. A terrible cacophony of quarreling voices rang out until wise Old Turtle quelled the din, explaining that "God is all that we dream of, and all that we seek... all that we come from and all that we can find." Based on the book by Douglas Wood, with its elegant dream-like watercolors by Cheng-Khee Chee, Song of Wisdom from Old Turtle is a choral and symphonic experience, which must not only be heard, but felt by the soul! Staying true to the text of the story, Joseph Martin has masterfully crafted the many characters and moods of the book into a musical fantasy for SATB chorus and narrator. Brant Adams' rich and colorful orchestration adds depth and a sense of awe to this choral symphony. The work leaves audiences speechless, until they jump to their feet in enthusiastic applause! Orchestra score and parts available on rental from G. Schirmer.
