Father Mapple’s Whaling Hymn (2013)

Father Mapple’s Whaling Hymn (2013) – 2-part choir, tuba, and piano (5′)
-With text from Herman Melville’s great American epic Moby Dick, this dramatic setting of the story of Jonah and The Whale features deep rich tones from the tuba and piano, coupled with expressive melodies and reflective harmonies in the chorus. Although set here for TB, the work may also be performed by SB voices. Appropriate for accomplished middle school ensembles and beyond, for both sacred and secular performances.
