Siyahamba (Mixed Voices)

Thumbnail 240

Voicings: SA/Men & Piano

Accompaniment: Accompanied

Siyahamba is one of the best-known African worship songs of recent times. It is presented here in a (mostly) homophonic arrangement that contrasts unison singing with three-part harmonies. As with lots of African, folk and gospel music, three notes cover all the necessary harmonies, but you can have lots of fun once you know the arrangement by adding more of your own, for example ‘doubling’ at other octaves to create a thicker texture. Siyahamba also features in L’Estrange’s hit cantata Zimbe! Come sing the songs of Africa.

This piece is part of the Faber Choral Singles series, offering a selection of beautifully crafted arrangements in a diversity of musical styles. From Broadway, pop and folk to spirituals, gospel and original works, the series is arranged for 3-part choir (soprano, alto and a combined male-voice part) providing flexibility for any choir. Complete with straight-forward piano accompaniments supporting the vocal lines, the Faber Choral Singles series guarantees the perfect repertoire for every occasion – so get exploring and get singing!
