Captivating, intense music of our time for mixed choir SATB (SSAATTBB). "Meant to be enjoyed or hated", says the composer.

14 pages, duration ca. 7 minutes.

The German-language poem "Das Knie" by Christian Morgenstern (6 May 1871 – 31 March 1914) is a fascinating story about a KNEE returning alone back home through countries after its "host", the man himself, was shot dead at war.

Because the piece includes numerous significant tempo, style and force, story-telling, emotion and intensity changes, it is highly recommended that the instrumental demo is listened completely from beginning to end – for the listener to be able to understand and be part of the hard voyage of this poor knee.

Level of difficulty: Somewhat challenging music for choirs with skilled to advanced singers
