Composer Christopher Tin's classical crossover smash hit "Baba Yetu" was first introduced to millions as the opening theme for the popular video game Civilization IV. "Baba Yetu" has since become a Grammy award-winning song from Tin's best-selling 2009 album, Calling All Dawns. The lyrics are a Swahili rendition of "The Lord's Prayer" as translated and adapted by Chris Kiagari, set to an unforgettable melody and dramatic orchestration by Tin. This 10-page piano/vocal sheet music edition captures the majesty of Tin's composition for piano performance, with lyrics, vocal melodies, and condensed choir parts also notated. (For choirs, SATB and SSATBB octavos with optional corresponding instrumental accompaniment sets and tracks are available for separate purchase.)
