Eric Whitacre's "little man in a hurry," with text by E.E. Cummings, is a fast-paced, driving piece for SATB + piano that depicts the hustle and bustle by big city living. Have you been looking for a part-reading and rhythmic challenge for your choir? Look no further. Whitacre perfectly balances "oven-mit" cluster harmonies and numerous metres (4/4, 9/8, 7/8, 11/8!) with a gorgeous "teneramente" middle section.
