Voicing: CCBar (3-part Cambiata) and piano or TTBB and piano
Duration: 2' 55"
The version for Cambiata choir is suitable for boys' changing voices and is published in OUP's Emerging Voices series. The TTBB version is for adult male voices.
Slow Down has a relaxed swing feel, with imaginative lyrics by the composer that encourage us to take time out of our busy lives. The baritones have fun with a scat bassline while the upper parts enjoy exploring a swung quaver style, all underpinned by a supportive yet characterful piano part.
