German Romanticism meets animal noises! This gypsy song tells the story of seven girls turned into werewolves, complete with the sounds of wolves and owls (wille wau, wau, wau, wille wau, wau, withe hu). This primarily homophonic partsong is filled with drama, drastic dynamic changes, and charm. Some tuning challenges, but the piece is well within the reach of most select high school choirs as well.
