Original jazz composition by Sebastian Weiss. Sebastian's music is not only cleverly put together and well-written for the voice it is also accessible for choirs at all levels.
The whole piece is constructed in a way that allows for a flexible ensemble. While the choir stands at its center, the accompaniment can be a single piano, a jazz quartet or a string orchestra with jazz quartet.
Listen to sample tracks of all four movements below.

|Orchestration||Piano or Jazz quartet (piano, drums, acoustic bass, tenor saxophone) or String orchestra with jazz quartet|
Whilst trying to stay clear of jazzy stereotypes, Sebastian has incorporated the idea of jazz in the choice of ensemble and in the harmonic language, by creating room for improvisation and by giving the performers some freedom to fill out the parts to their own taste, as would be common in jazz.
