Wooden Voices Vol. 2
Twelve Original Works for Marimba Ensemble - Beginning to Intermediate
By Eric Schopmeyer and Adrienne Leverette
Grades 4 - 8
These original compositions for Zimbabwean-style marimba ensembles are intended to compliment and contrast the traditional African repertoire offering student groups experience with different moods, modes, meters and forms. The material will work for first or second year players. The last 2 songs are also effective with more advanced groups who can pull them off at fast tempos. Notes on each song are included.
All compositions are for diatonic marimbas. The ensemble used consists of a bass (CC-D), one baritone (GG-d), two extended-range tenors (C-g') to accommodate 2 players each, 2 extended-range sopranos (G-c'') for two players each and one lead soprano (c-c''). Orff instruments will work for parts, too. Djembes or congas are used for every song. A website for supplemental material is provided.
