Everyone Sang

Everyone Sang

From "Everyone sang" to "Everyone WILL sing", a peaceful Hymn of Ko Matsushita's latest work.

============================================
Comments from Ko Matsushita

Commissioned by The Co-Curricular Activities Branch of The Ministry of Education, Singapore, I composed this choral work as an assigned piece for the secondary school choral division of The Singapore Youth
Festival Central Judging 2007.

I chose the text from a poem written by Siegfried Sassoon (1886-1967), an English poet who is well known for his antiwar poems born from his experience of fighting in the front line during World War I.
"Everyone Sang"depicts vividly and emotively the joy of people who were liberated when the war ended.

The song proceeds lightly and powerfully in the 6/8 rhythm, delicately reflecting the contents of the poem.The fundamental rhythm, essential to the music, was inspired by Joget, a typical Malaysian dance.
