If you have a lot of really low basses in your TTBB ensemble, give this work by Stacey V. Gibbs some serious consideration! Beware, though, as this piece will require a great deal musically of your ensemble. In addition to being a capella, Steal Away will present your singers with challenging harmonies, complex phrasing, occasional 5 or 6 part divisi, extreme dynamic contrasts, and rubato throughout. The powerful depiction of trumpet sounds in the middle of the song build and grow to the musical climax of the piece before winding down to a more subdued and peaceful ending. This is a truly powerful setting that is sure to be a favorite of any advanced TTBB ensemble!
