Snow Angel: SSAA vocal score

for SSAA, solo cello, djembe, and piano Already a firm favourite with choirs across the world, Snow Angel is an evocative five-movement choral work that explores themes of love, rebirth, and beauty through the eyes of children and the heavenly army of angels that watch over them, yearning to make a difference to their lives. The work may be performed with narration, in which three angels present their perspectives on their earthly charges. Quartel weaves a haunting and poignant cello line throughout the work, and a vibrant part for djembe in movement four, 'Sweet child', carries the listener from the ethereal and mystical realm the work predominantly inhabits into an emphatic anthem with a distinctly African feel. The musical language is emotive and pictorial, allowing performers to play an active role in the storytelling. Snow Angel is also available in a version for SATB.

About the Author

Canadian composer, conductor, and educator Sarah Quartel is known for her fresh and exciting approach to choral music. Her works have been performed throughout North America and featured by groups such as the National Youth Choir of Canada, The Nathaniel Dett Chorale, and the a cappella group Rajaton. She became a conductor with Viva Children's Choirs in 2011, and continues to work as a guest clinician at various music education and choral events throughout Canada.


The composer writes that: 'The work asks listeners to see the tremendous potential present in our children. It celebrates love, beauty, and the strength that a child's voice can bring to our troubled world.' The work's musical language is direct and unchallenging, aiming to create an 'ethereal and mystical realm' (as noted on the composer's website), though contrast is provided with a brief change into an 'emphatic anthem with a distinctly African feel' (provided in part by the added drum). This contrast matches well the hip Angel present in Narration 2, complete with tattoos and nose piercing. * Geoffrey Webber, Choir & Organ July 2017 *
