Blondin (2017, rev. 2024) - Edward Enman (SATB choir) [Score]

Jean François Gravelet (1824-1897), better known as Charles Blondin, was a French tightrope walker and acrobat whose tightrope walks across Niagara Falls made him particularly famous in North America.


This suspended piece for SATB choir evokes imagery of Blondin walking across a tightrope over roaring water, with wind and empty space all around. What's left is a spiritual experience of sorts, seemingly above the world itself.
