Fans of "Hymn of Acxiom" and "Hide and Seek" will likely be drawn to the power of this setting of Regina Spektor's song painting an impressionistic picture of citizens rising up to take back power from an oppressive government. Interpretations will vary of this beautifully crafted and veiled lyric. The Peter Gabriel version on which this a cappella setting is mostly inspired is wildly dynamic and foreboding, and this arrangement brings out this quality as well as portraying moments of Russian choral music.
So, you know...a light opener for your advanced eight-part choir.
The included optional cello part carries the rhythmic pulse at the end of the piece, so when possible, I would encourage its use. The flugelhorn part is slightly less prominent (and is not featured on the demo recording), but may add some interesting color to your performance if the player is sensitive and willing to experiment with avant garde techniques.
