Two works from the E. C. Schirmer Catalog were added to the University Interscholastic League (UIL) Prescribed Music List.
The Music Program of the UIL is designed to support and enrich the teaching of music as an integral component of the public school curriculum in the state of Texas. Each year approximately one half million middle school, junior high and high school students reap the benefits of participation in the ten UIL music events.
Hushaby by Ellen Gilson Voth, GMC #1.3380
SATB Chorus (divisi) unaccompanied
“This arrangement presents the challenge of singing a familiar lullaby with freshness and a tender sound quality that is well supported. Take great care in the opening to energize the E natural pedal point. The middle section (mm. 22–52) is intended to be dream-like, with cascading images of horses that are moving quickly then gradually slowing their pace. The ritardando is built in; singers should focus on being absolutely rhythmic with the 8th-note pulse. The last page is the place to be luxurious with time, and to enjoy the final hum fading into silence.” -Ellen Gilson Voth
