74. The Plaint (SATB) - Will Ayton
$5.00 USD

Composer’s notes: “The Plaint” is a four-part setting of a single-line melody that came for a
visit one day while I was fooling around at the piano. When melodies like this show up, they
are often shaped by my Celtic DNA and seem to have their own personality. The meaning of
the title “Plaint” might be either that of a sad mournful song, or an intense complaint seeking
for redress of some grievance. This melody seemed to have elements of both sentiments.

Editor's notes: Humming and strumming come together in a delightful song setting. The easy nature of this piece allows players of all levels to enjoy making beautiful sounds unburdened by complex technical challenges. After a brief introduction, the main melody opens with a leap of a 5th, inviting the others to come join in. Separate parts as well as playalong recordings with one part missing are available for ARS members at
