Nelson Mandela – Across the Skies – SATB


A fitting tribute to one of the world’s great men – Nelson Mandela.

A beautiful and fitting tribute to Nelson Mandela. A South African anti-apartheid revolutionary, politician and philanthropist (and eventually President of South Africa). Nelson Mandela was a man who really did make the world a better place.This is an original piece by Alan Simmons that should (we think) be sung throughout the world. It celebrates his life, his energy and his incredible strength and resilience. One of our very favourite pieces in the catalogue, this beautiful arrangement sounds absolutely wonderful in all voice settings. The arrangement has some delicious close harmonies throughout. This, and the interesting rhythm make this a truly wonderful piece to sing. When learning it can appear slightly slightly challenging in parts – particularly around the key changes. But stick with it and you will not be disappointed. A fitting tribute.

The sound file is in Female voice – but it gives a good idea of the arrangement and the tune.
