Sing On (A Musical Toast) Composed by Gwyneth Walker. For SATB. Published by E C Schirmer Music Co. (Catalog # 6524, UPC: 600313465246)

** Excellence in Choral Literature - 2008 **

From the composer: "The pleasures of music, food and love are 'toasted' in Sing On! Based on the familiar text by Col. Henry Heveningham ('If music be the food of love...'), this musical setting adds a few new touches: the clanking of knife-on-glass to set the tempo, a gesture of a toast-celebration as the final cut-off, and playful clusters (perhaps cream puffs!) in the piano accompaniment. A middle section delights in reordering the words: 'If food be the music of love...if music lovers love food...if the love of food be music...' This may speak to the gourmets in the audience. Delicacies, one and all! ...Sing on!" Duration: ca. 3:00
