Looking for love – a modern madrigal for SATB choir
SATB a capella choir or accompanied
Text: random miscellaneous ads selected by Becky Llewellyn
Audiences love the humour and pathos of this simple choral piece with its eternal subject. Wanted is Becky’s first piece of writing in 1986. At that time, people wrote in the ‘miscellaneous’ column of the paper to find partners. The text is actual ‘wanted’ ads; the music, little modern madrigal riffs from her Casio keyboard, underlining the mass produced, almost cliched feel, of these heartfelt, often cheeky ads.
Written in 1986, this 4-minute piece is suitable for community SATB choir, either a capella or doubling piano.
