Give Said the Little Stream SATB

Here is the finished version of Give Said the Little Stream, arranged in a choral setting.  Compared to the version posted below, this has a lot more four part harmony, especially in the 2nd half of the song. I decided to be nice to the basses and tenors and removed the high G.  The basses do have an Eb (over Middle C), but this line is doubled by the tenors so the basses can just lip sync as needed.  One of the areas that I really tightened up in this version were the added harmonies in the third verse.  The 4 part harmony creates a slightly different feel when compared to the solo version. The choir haromonies makes the piece sound a little bit more grand and there’s less of that “children’s song” feel that is present in the solo version.   Overall, though, I’m happy with how it turned out.  Now I just need to find a big enough choir to double check everything!
