Astor Piazzolla : Tangos in Vocal Harmony : SATB : Sheet Music

Astor Piazzolla : Tangos in Vocal Harmonynew

It has been said that you can see Buenos Aires while listening to Astor Piazzolla's music. This is one of his talents that sets him apart from other composers. Piazzolla made a revolution with the tango, which created many problems for him in his country (traditionalists did not accept his music as tango). But everybody finally accepted his changes because his music put the Argentine dance, the tango, at the highest level. Gentle tango rhythms and modern harmonies infuse these folk-like tunes.

Songlist: Verano Porteno, Libertango, Primavera Poertena, Invierno Poerteno, Otono Porteno, Reminiscense

Karl Jenkins : Adiemus Colores : SATB : 01 Songbook : 884088991654 : 0851629334 : 48023091

Karl Jenkins : Adiemus Colores

Adiemus Colores marks Karl Jenkins' return after ten years to the series that helped make his name, and it draws inspiration from the sights, sounds, colors and rhythms of Latin American music. As with the original Adiemus, Jenkins combines classical principles with the flavors of world and ethnic music supported by lively percussion. His choral writing adopts an invented language with no meaning, like scat singing in jazz. Each movement is named in Spanish after a color and explores the mood each evokes for the composer, embracing Brazilian samba, Argentinian tango and Spanish bolero. Adiemus Colores is scored for choir and ensemble with soloists, with a total duration of 75 minutes. Performance materials are available on hire.

Songlist: Cancion amearilla, Cancion violeta, Cancion negra, Cancion rosa, Cancion azul, Cancion turquesa, Cancion naranja, Cancion verde, Cancion blanca, Cancion dorada, Cancion plateada, Cancion roja

Oscar Escalada : Latin American Choral Series  : SATB : Sheet Music

Oscar Escalada : Latin American Choral Series

A wonderful collection of contemporary Latin American choral music selected by noted Argintian conductor and composer Oscar Escalada. "La Chaparrita " is a brisk Venezuelan folk melody and is fun to sing and includes the vocal imitation of a typical pattern played on a "cuarto". "Candomble", from Uruguay, is written in a rhythm very close to the tango and the habanera. "La Ninez De America" is based on a poem of Argentinian poet Alberto del Carril and is inspired by the Incas. "Cancion Con Todos " is a two-part song based on two different rhythms. The first part is calm and recognizes each area of the Americas with characteristic elements such as copper for Chile, sun for Peru etc. The second part is rhythmic and exultant with the hope of bringing all the peoples of Latin America to sing together!

Songlist: Cancion Con Todos, Se Equivoco La Paloma (The Dove Was Wrong), La Ninez De America, La Chaparrita , Candomble

Various Arrangers : Spanish Carols, Lullabies and Folksongs

"Come, come, shepherds let us go! Let's run to Bethlehem." Written in the "Bambuco Fiestero" rhythm of the Andes Mountains of Columbia, the characteristic dance rhythm of 6/8 against 3/4 is the main feature of this a cappella setting. In Spanish, with English translation. "Canticos De Navidad" - Juan Orrego-Sala, a noted Latin American composer, is Professor Emeritis of Composition and Latin American Music at the Indiana University School of Music. This charming set of Christmas pieces reflects his native country, Chile, not only in the language, but in the characteristic rhythms and harmonies. The second of the three, Alleluya, can be extracted for year-round performance, and, although diminutive in length, deserves a place along side the well-known "Alleluia" by Randall Thompson with whom the composer studied. The original settings of "Four Spanish Lullabies" create the feeling of tenderness and sorrow so typical of the Spanish lullaby. A litling Brazilian style lullaby, a 3-part a cappella chorus, a flight of imagination and a comical nursery rhyme make up this compelling set. The energetic Colombian folksong "Maquerule" tells the tale of a friendly baker who learns the hard way to collect the cash upfront! Strong syncopation and a staccato singing section add to the fun. Includes suggestions for using optional percussion.

Songlist: Canticos De Navidad, Maquerule, Four Spanish Lullabies, Fum, Fum, Fum

Add a multi-cultural element to your Christmas concerts and celebrate the Navidad season. The Mexican tradition of ""La Fiesta de la Posada"" recreates the search for a room at an inn. This delightful number by Sally Albrecht recreates that tradition in song with an English text that tells the story ("when we light luminarias and swing at the pinata."). Features an optional solo/duet in each verse. "Cantemos" is a beautiful, rhythmic Venezuelan folk carol with an English/Spanish text. "Vamos todos a Belen" - A detailed translation/pronunciation guide makes it easy to master the Spanish text of this traditional Mexican-American Christmas song, or perform it in English. Lilting six-eight piano creates a gentle rocking motion as we sing about going to Bethlehem to see the baby. In the middle, a solo is briefly accompanied by only the chorus before a thrilling modulation and final flourish to the glorious end.

Songlist: Fiesta Navidad, La Fiesta de la Posada, El Pequeno Nino (The Tiny Baby), A La Nanita Nana, Cantemos (Venezuelan Folk Carol), Vamos todos a Belen (Let Us Go to Bethlehem)

Various Arrangers : Latin Accents : SATB : Sheet Music

Various Arrangers : Latin Accents

"Casita de Campo" is one of the most popular love songs from the Dominican Republic. It describes a modest, and yet beautiful, little rural house in the Cibao region where the composer evokes the consummation of a passionate and virginal love. It is a "cancion-bolero," a typical Caribbean romantic song form in quadruple meter, slow-paced, which is also a centerpiece of serenades. "Chanflin" is a typical Dominican merengue in its melody and form. Chanflin is a young woman, very good looking. The merengue section refers to a "neighborhood gossip." The jaleo section refers to Chanflin dressing in a finicky manner. "La Lluvia" is a folk melody from Ecuador traditionally played on the siku - the double row of panpipes that have been used in the high Andes for over a thousand years. With percussion. "Son de Camaguey" is a Cuban folk song from which the composer takes the refrain and then frames it with kaleidoscopic patters of ostinati inspired by the song, and by Afro-Cuban music in general. "O Sapo" - In this irresistible Brazilian song setting, vocal lines imitate percussion patterns to create a truly infectious groove. Newly arranged for SSATB chorus. With optional percussion.

Songlist: O Sapo, Maquerule, Casita de Campo, Chanflin, La Lluvia, Son de Camaguey

Various Arrangers : Spanish Songs For Treble Voices

"La Lluvia" is a folk melody from Ecuador traditionally played on the siku - the double row of panpipes that have been used in the high Andes for over a thousand years. Hot-blooded and haughty, a mixture of delight and disdain. The central paradox of performing "Las Amarillas" it that the rhythms must be very incisive and exact, yet the precision must be combined with the devil-may-care festive attitude that prevents the precision from sounding clinical. Mangulina is a dance derived from Zapateado Espanol (a Spanish heel-tapping dance). "Guayacanal," originally written in the 1950's by Dominican songwriters Luis Kalaff and Bienvenido Brens, embodies what is known as the Mangulina today, and is so famous that when asked, people often think it's a folk song. This piece is best accompanied with tamborra (a double-headed drum from the Dominican Republic) and guira (a metal scraper from the Dominican Republic, scraped with a metal fork.) These delightful miniatures are wonderful for concert, contest and small ensembles. Careful part-writing and attention to range make these a good choice for younger treble groups. Includes: "A la puerta del cielo (At the Gate of Heaven)," "El Senor nacio en Belen (The Lord Was Born in Bethlehem)," and "Gloria a Dios en las Alturas (Glory to God in the Highest.)"

Songlist: La Lluvia, La Cucaracha, Gloria A Dios, Guayacanal, Las Amarillas

Juan Orrego-Sala, a noted Latin American composer, is Professor Emeritis of Composition and Latin American Music at the Indiana University School of Music.

Caramba (Good Gracious, My Love) is a serenade from Venezuela.

The serenade continued to be quite popular at the beginning of the 20th century. Typically, a young lady, just inside a window of her home, is serenaded by her lover. Fortunately, this is still practiced in some cities where life remains calm!
