NOT IN OUR TOWN
Words and Music by Fred Small. Arr. by Kevin Robison.

$1.50 ea. Published by Kevin Robison. Place an order.
Robison’s most requested arrangement, now available again. This piece tells of real-life events that occurred in the town of Billings, Montana, when white supremacists vandalized the homes of Jewish people who placed menorahs in their windows. The town came together and decided everyone would put a menorah in their window to show solidarity and prevent members of the KKK from being able to distinguish who lived where. 

 

 
Traditional text. Music by Kevin Robison.
SATB. Harp or Piano. Features vocal trio. Opt. F. Horn, percussion.
$1.50 ea. Published by Kevin Robison. Place an order.
The traditional text, most often heard in Britten’s “Ceremony of Carols” is set to new music by Robison in this haunting arrangement that lends itself to a variety of voicings. TTBB chorus with treble trio are heard in this recording. The trio can be comprised of any number of male or female voices, making this a stunning SATB arrangement. The separation of chorus and trio allows for antiphonal possibilities.

WHAT MATTERS
