Black Currawong Tango (2022) is a description of the native Australian Currawong and describes the beauty of nature as the sun rises. The underlying beat is a Habanera rhythm and whilst it is in C major it uses some jazz chords and flattened notes for effect. It teaches harmonic and unison singing, question and answer techniques and explores the vocal and dynamic range of the voice. It is available for Unison or SA and piano, and is suitable for Concerts, Assemblies, Eisteddfods and Festivals for Primary School and lower High School age children. There is also a piano version (2014) available that is approximately Grade 4 level.
“Sleek in the night the Currawong awaits the dawn,
Beautiful sunrise dawning.
Slender and strong with watchful eye, with watchful gaze upon the sky,
Wisdom, gazing, flying into the sky.
Curious wisdom; above the Earth within the sky.
Sleek in the night the Currawong awaits the sunrise,
Awaits the dawning of the day… ” Sherelle Eyles
Key Tonal centre of C
