Can you go wrong with a Strauss walltz? Audiences love this setting of one of the many Strauss waltzes. Gerald Wirth, Artistic Director of the Vienna Boys’ Choir, teams up with his wife, Elke Wirth, to create this rousing story of a drop of water that dances and journeys all the way to the ocean. Text is presented in German and English. Your singers will take to this song quickly and will want to perform it again and again. Beginning with a simple two-part dance, this composition develops with twists and turns in key signatures, dynamics, and emotion. This would be a great addition to any boys’ choir music library.
