“Singing for Water tells the story of Native Americans protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline in 2017, recreating elements of the experience alongside the narration. The piece is written for layered chorus, meaning it can be performed by just about any ensemble from 2 to 6 parts, and in combination with other choirs doing the various arrangements. There are also optional instrumental parts for recorder, piano, and percussion. Please note the cost for the sheet music does not go beyond sustaining the publication of the music itself; no net profits are collected by the composer or lyricist, and writer royalties will be distributed directly to Honor the Earth, a non-profit that supports Native environmental issues.
2 Part, 4 Part, 6 Part, Mixed Chorus, and Layered Chorus
