Goza Mi Calipso – SATB

Goza Mi Calipso – All Products



This work is another great addition to the Songs Of The World series edited by Andre de Quadros. Here, the composer refers to the piece as a “lively, modern interpretation of the Venezuelan calypso, a genre imported from Trinidad in the nineteenth century.” The work is scored for mixed chorus with optional piano, guitar, and hand drum.
