Dramatic and dark, this murderous tale of two sisters could be an easy sell to mischievous middle school men who revel in gritty movies and video games. Composer Joshua Shank employs partwriting and tessitura appropriate to younger singers, but incorporates numerous shifts in meter to set the natural rhythm of the text. Because the technical requirements are surmountable, it frees the singers to focus on interpreting and telling the macabre story.
