Paddle Your Own Canoe

SSAA. My tribute to The Boswell Sisters, the greatest arrangers of all time. This piece is a setting of the rather stuffy Victorian feminist poem by Sarah Bolton. My arrangement came in second for a state-wide competition (okay, there were only two entries—but they did debate for a really long time!). It starts as a parody of barbershop choral harmonies before harrowing off into a jazzy, boppy Boswell sound.
