The Score

Contained within the current score for 'The Cross & The Switchblade' are the chords, the melody and the lyrics. Interspersed throughout are additional piano accompaniments that have been included, along with some additional vocals other then the main melody. These are designed to add light and shade and added interest to the whole work.

The music throughout the whole musical is extremely varied - from rich ballads, complex ensembles, to passionate and emotion driven solos. Every song has been written with a burning desire to see that this same passion and emotion will be transmitted to audiences all over the world.

The story is universal, and so the music has been written in a way that it can transport this universality and appeal as well.

Strong melodic lines give many of these pieces immediate memorability, and varied accompaniment and time signatures, even in individual songs, creates interest throughout.

The whole aim of every song is to carry the story to an ultimate conclusion, while evoking continued intrigue and anticipation right up until the end of the show.
