A new Christmas oratorio from Eric is now available in print. Using Ogden Nash’s incredibly funny text, the piece is scored for SATB choir, children’s chorus and piano. A version for chamber orchestra will be released in 2019.
The work is now available from all good retailers including:
“Although his name was Jabez Dawes, his character was full of flaws!” With an hysterical text by Ogden Nash, Eric Whitacre has brought all of his theatrical skills to this three movement work and tells a wonderful story that will leave parents smiling and young children determined to be “even better” so as not to meet the same fate as young Jabez. This is a holiday treat for singers, players and audiences.
