Three Alberta Cowboy Songs

SATB a cappella
These three songs were originally arranged for Dr Richard Sparks and Pro Coro Canada as a light interlude for a concert at the Winspear Centre for Music in Edmonton. They were a fun additiona to the concert, the choir loved rehearsing them and the audience loved the premier performance. Richard performed the set of three with the National Youth Choir the following year, and many choirs across the country subsequently performed them. The pieces went through several versions before Cypress Choral Music published them.

You’ll find this set of three at Cypress Choral Music

The recording is from “the simplest way” by Chronos Vocal Ensemble, conducted by Jordan Van Biert. More information about Chronos is available at Chronos Vocal Ensemble
