for 4 choirs (Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Bass)  

Shalana is the leader of the Human Clan in the Patria Epilogue: And Wolf Shall Inherit the Moon. But Shalana has deserted the Human Clan and gone to live in the forest with the other animals. He dies in the forest, but his voice lives on and can be heard in the wind and in the rain and in the changing seasons. Shafer composed The Death of Shalana with the intention that it should eventually be sung across a lake, with the four choirs on different shores.
