Suite Grandkids contains six pieces originally scored for classical guitar trio, one for each of the grandkids that I had at that time (2005). I decided to write lyrics for each movement, creating a version for voice (male and/or female) and classical guitar, then expanding it to this version for SATB Choir with classical guitar and percussion. The percussion parts are easy and meant to be performed by members of the choir. This download contains a recording of the choir version with only one voice per part. Soprano part is Gail Carpenter or Cindy Saunders-Katz, alto is Becky Hewett, tenor is John Carpenter and bass is Charles Rann. The composer plays the guitar part and all percussion. The picture of my grandkids looks like a poster for cultural diversity. Their varied genetic backgrounds presented an opportunity to compose an eclectic suite with each piece presenting a style representative of their unique genetic heritage. Performance time for the entire suite is 23 minutes but each piece could stand alone on a concert program. Individual titles are: Riely's Dance, Ananlysia's Margarita, Toy for Timothy, Air for Chiara, Lullaby for Mirabai,and Soren's Jig. Performance demand level is mostly intermediate with a few advanced sections. Jim's web site is www.facebook.com/jimbosseguitar
