The text of Kashiri is a traditional Korean lyric poem, but the musical setting is entirely original.  A good stylistic performance will remember that the traditional Korean vocal style involves a great deal of portamento, especially in sad music.  It is best to invite a native Korean speaker to coach the choir on pronunciation, but the IPA is provided in the octavo.  Also available for SATB (see S-44).  A very dramatic setting.  Difficult, but very effective and worth the effort!  Requires a good pianist.

 Also available for SSA (see W-14).
