A short fun song for children's choir setting a poem by Margaret Mahy about a cat.
Poem by Margaret Mahy, music by Anthony Ritchie
Cat in the Dark was commissioned by The North Canterbury Academy of Music for performance in their Music Quarter Festival, in Rangiora, 2008. It was written for massed childrens' choir in unison and 2 parts. The final verse also includes a short 'round' in 3 parts.
The song may be transposed to suit the requirements of the choir.
There are 2 versions: the first has a part for B♭ clarinet as well as piano accompaniment. The clarinet part is also offered in C for any other available instrument. The second version is simply for piano and voices.
