suzanne – BY vince peterson
Slow Music, Contemplative, Secular
Commissioned and premiered by the multi-Grammy® award-winning ensemble Chanticleer, this one-of-a-kind song by Leonard Cohen gets a major a cappella treatment full of rhythmic vitality and harmonic interest. Note: there is a lot of divisi in this arrangement and parts should not be omitted for the purpose of "simplification." It can be performed by chorus of tenors and basses with a few countertenors, if available.
