Quick Overview

The Call, one of Herbert's most famous poems, has been set to music many times. The poem is notable for using single syllable words almost exclusively, and this setting by David Neches has, at its core, a lyrical nine-measure melody. Both treble and men's voices experience unison melodies which give way to lovely, accessible, straight-forward harmonies supported with piano accompaniment. A fantastic selection for teaching musical phrasing and unison singing to choirs of varying abilities. Highly recommended!
