Black Fly Song
by Wade Hemsworth, arr. Earle Peach
SATB with piano – – CP 1295 – 2:40
SAB with piano – – CP 1398
SSA with piano – – CP 1515
This is a classic Canadian folk song. In Ontario construction workers battle black flies without relief! Earle’s arrangement is rollicking great fun!
From the Air

SATB a cappella – – CP 1506 – 4:50
Earle shares a spiritual experience, looking down upon our beautiful green earth. Lush harmonies, intuitive voice leading and sweet spot registers make this gorgeous composition perfect for choirs ranging from high school groups, community choirs, church choirs and also professional groups. Listen to this performance by Vancouver’s Peace Choir directed by Dr. Timothy Corlis.
