If you are looking for an a cappella samba, SATB divisi with mezzo solo throughout, then this is the chart for you. Crenshaw does an excellent job writing a solo line accompanied by an articulated choral rhythm section. The chart does modulate but the range of the song remains well within acceptable limits. The SATB writing utilizes very few words and your students will have fun creating the “rhythm section” accompaniment.
