General Information

Title: Soup
Composer: Maggie Furtak
Lyricist: Maggie Furtak

Number of voices: 4vv   Voicing: SATB
Genre: SecularOde

Language: English
Instruments: Piano

First published: 2018
Description: Easy notes and rhythms. Comfortable ranges throughout. Homophonic. An adult choir should be able to put this together quickly, particularly because it is so short. It should be manageable for a solid high school group as well, and could probably be memorized pretty easily. Apologies for the midi sound quality. You may need headphones to get the lower notes to come through properly.
