In the Dark Times : for SSA choir and piano / Becky Llewellyn ; words by Bertolt Brecht.

Library shelf no. 782.6542/LLE 1 [Available for loan]

Work Overview

In the Dark Times is Llewellyn's musical response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Inspired by Bertolt Brecht's pithy 1939 text, she imagined herself back into the Berlin of Brecht's dark times to create this sultry women's trio. As a cross-over jazz/classical piece, it is a defiant piece of choral writing that insists on the power of singing in the world, even in a time when singing itself is banned in many places.

Written in 2020, this 4-minute piece is suitable for a skilled women's SSA choir or women's trio with accompanist.
