After much consideration I have decided to take out the Sufjan Stevens song “Seven Swans” from my draft song list. It’s a beautiful, haunting song but it’s also chillingly bleak, and the set called “Portents of Evil” would have been a pretty nerve-wracking one. Not to mention that the song was going to be quite hard to arrange for a choir.
I’ve now added the lovely, wistful Tom Waits song “So It Goes” to the “Reaching For The Sky” set, where it fits perfectly, moved Coldplay’s “Sky Full of Stars” to week 5 and re-named that set “Images of Good and Evil”.
This should now be the final song list. I have full arrangements for about 1/3 of the songs – the rest should be ready in about two weeks and I’ll post the lyrics, music etc then.
