SATB with Piano (Difficulty 3 out of 5)
“Creep” by Radiohead is one of the best-known alternative rock songs in the world; despite having been written in 1992, it continues to resonate with millions of people today. I arranged “Creep” because I am moved by how authentically and powerfully it gives voice to many taboo emotions including insecurity, shame, self-doubt, and loss. As a music educator, I find that choral singers yearn to give voice to such vulnerable emotions so that we as humans can validate their commonality and avoid their potential to diminish our love for self and others.
Accessible for intermediate high school, community, and collegiate choirs.
Written for the University of Minnesota Campus Singers Maroon, and revised for the University of Wisconsin - Superior A Cappella Choir.
