Oh! Ahab

"Oh! Ahab" is my latest choir work, from a line found in Melville's Moby Dick. It is rather easy to perform, as long as the choir (SATB) is large enough for the sopranos, altos, and basses to split and still produce a powerful and dramatic sound (please note that some sopranos could help the altos in those parts, and vice-versa, and some tenors could support the basses where needed).

That's all there's to say about it. The score is free, and there's also an audio file to give you an idea of how "Oh! Ahab" sounds like - but keep in mind that it is a computer rendering, therefore there's no words in it.
