Voicing Mixed Voices
A wonderfully uplifting piece with solos throughout, We Are The Future is highly recommended for youth choir. With text adapted from year 8, Brighton Secondary Student, Paris Maddern’s poem “The Future”, this joyous piece for SATB or SSA choir carries a strong, youthful voice and sings of their hope for the future, and their role in it.
“And I cry at the glowing blaze of disaster in this world
Yearning to reshape it, let goodness be unfurled
Perhaps I am not good enough
Perhaps my strength exceeds me,
The world will see me.”
