Product Description

Break of Day Composed by Michael John Trotta. For SATB. Published by Carl Fischer, Llc. (Catalog # CM9296, UPC: 798408090869)

Michael Trotta's masterful SATB arrangement contains lyric, legato vocal lines which unfold to reveal a subtle interplay between voices, interwoven with piano and optional obligato line (for oboe or horn). The text, an account of two lovers faced with parting, concludes with the yearning refrain "Stay or else my joys will die" giving voice to the dichotomy of the feelings of joy and pain associated with closeness and separation from a loved one. Also available in SSA(A) (CM9280).
