Carter Pann - Three Tongan Legends for SATB Choir (2012)

Quick Overview

Three Tongan Legends is a tour de force of exotic inventiveness! Pann not only wrote the story and choral text, he also created an original language with South Pacific flavor, to maximize the relationship between phonetic sonorities and the musical flow. The three movements are titled: I. Klaa Ma (song for the infinite sky), II. Kanokaa do! (a hunting song), and III. Dalle ma nabonu (song for the dead).
