An energetic original melody is partnered with the well-known American folk song, Drill, Ye Tarriers, Drill in this robust concert offering for young choirs which describes the construction of the American railroads in the mid-1800s. The word √'tarriers√" refers to the Irish workers who drilled holes in the rock to blast out the railroad tunnels. Simple Cowbell and Wood Blocks parts add the 'hammer' effect to enhance both the introduction and interludes. This selection is a terrific way to teach part-singing to younger choirs and the style and theme make it especially appealing to male singers.
Voicing: Two-part w/ Opt. Small Percussion
