Bates, Joe: Some Parts of Us. SATB


A heart-warming personal meditation on the shared things that are the essence of friendship, Some Parts of Us also reaches out to all who have felt the highs and lows of relationships. In Joe Bates’s own description, ‘it is about how the basic things we have in common – homes, pasts, sunscreen – belong not to either person but are built together.’ With a gentle irony and cool nostalgia reminiscent of Sondheim’s work, the composer’s own specially written lyrics suggest intimate feeling through richly expressive harmonies and strong melodic lines, woven into a memorable pattern of shifting moods. The message of Some Parts of Us will engage singers and audiences alike, vividly conveying true-to-life insights with the emotional directness of popular music.
