Save the Boys

for Countertenor and Piano

Vocal Score
Out of Stock


Save the Boys by Tyshawn Sorey transforms a 19th-century temperance poem by Black abolitionist, suffragist, and writer Frances E. W. Harper into a lament on the precarity of Black lives in 21st-century America. Commissioned by Opera Philadelphia, the 20-minute song was composed for countertenor John Holiday and pianist Grant Loehnig, whose world premiere performance was released as an online video in February 2021 as part of the company's digital-only 2020-2021 season.

This vocal score includes piano accompaniment and a brief program note from the composer.
