Composer DESAMOURS, EMILE
Voicing/Instrument SATB SACRED A CAPPELLA
Publisher MARK FOSTER MUSIC CO.
Written in Haitian "rara" style, Alélouya by Emile Desamours captures the celebratory nature of this musical style in an exuberant anthem proclaiming Christ's resurrection. Sung a cappella in the Haitian Creole dialect with finger snaps and tongue clicks, the joy and ecstasy of Easter overflow. For choirs that may find the Haitian text a bit too challenging, Alélouya will also be very effective performed using the English text. This is a truly electric piece!
