Choral Arrangements of Motets

A polyphonic vocal style of composition. The motet was popular in the middle ages, when it consisted of a tenor foundation upon which other tunes were added. The texts of these voices could be sacred or secular, Latin or French, and usually had little to do with each other, with the result that the composition lacked unity and direction. During the 14th century, isorhythm came into use and other rhythmic refinements, somewhat unifying the sound and texture of the motet. By the Renaissance, the separate voices of the motet had adopted the same text (by this time the texts were religious almost without exception) and each voice was considered a part of the whole rather than a whole in itself, thus finally giving the motet unity and grace. from the French term mot (word).

The medieval motet is a polyphonic genre which originated in the thirteenth century in which the upper voice or voices are texted (usually syllabically) and the bottom voice, the tenor, is untexted. The tenor is usually an excerpt from a solo section of chant (though a few are drawn from secular models), but the excerpt has been provided with rhythm and may be repeated or manipulated. Though early motets are sacred, by the end of the thirteenth century the newly-created texts of the top lines often deal with secular topics such as love. See motet, double; motet, early; conductus-motet; Franconian motet; Petronian motet; isorhythm. See also conductus (polyphonic).

Aaron Copland : Four Motets for Mixed Voices

These four motets were composed in the fall of 1921 while Copland was studying with Nadia Boulanger in Paris. The four motets have remained unpublished until now. Writing to Copland about them in 1924, Boulanger tells the composer that "those motets sound in the voices in a stunning manner."

Songlist: Help Us, O Lord, Sing Ye Praises To Our King, Have Mercy On us, O My Lord, Though, O Jehovah, Abideth Forever

Alan Bullard : Wondrous Cross : SATB : Songbook : 9780193379893

Alan Bullard : Wondrous Cross

Wondrous Cross is a reflective work suitable for church or concert choirs at Passiontide. Bullard skilfully weaves the traditional Seven Last Words of Christ with linking biblical passages, 3 well-known hymns, and settings of 4 well-known sacred texts, including 'Drop, drop, slow tears' and 'Ave verum corpus' (both of which may be sung as independent motets) to create a moving and at times dramatic work. The short solos are perfectly suited to members of the choir, and strings (quartet, quintet, or ensemble) may optionally join the organ or piano in the accompaniment. If performed liturgically, the work may be interspersed with prayers and readings. The result is a flexible and striking work that re-presents this timeless story for a modern audience. String parts and full scores are available to hire from the Music Hire Library.

Songlist: Prelude, The First Words, There is a green hill far away, The Second Words, The Third Words, When my love to God grows weak , The Fourth Words, Drop, drop, slow tears, Were You There?, The Fifth Words, Ave verum corpus, The Sixth Words, God so loved the world, The Seventh Words , In the departure of the Lord, When I survey the Wondrous Cross

Ivan Moody : Motets for Five Voices

All the motets in this volume are quite early works, taken from the collection 'Sacrae Cantiones Quinque Vocum', published in 1562 at Nuremburg. The typical features of these works are their virtuoso character and exuberance. These are achieved through the use of predominantly bright tonalities, frequent variation of textures and dramatic harmonic and melodic touches. Edited by Ivan Moody, this is part of a series of short volumes, each devoted to a single composer or appropriate group of composers, thoroughly exploring the unlimited resources of Renaissance sacred polyphony. Contains keyboard part for rehearsal purposes.

Tomas Luis de Victoria : Masses and Motets

This beautifully presented edition from Novello offers a full Mass setting alongside a Motet, both for SATB chorus, by Tomas Luis De Victoria. Regarded by many as one of the greatest composers of Spanish renaissance polyphony, this Mass setting is rich in his characteristic tonalities and the textures of the sacred choral tradition. Alongside this is the original Motet upon which the Mass setting is based. Both are transcribed and edited by Andrew Parker. The pairing of the two works offers an exciting and fascinating performance opportunity, with the devout grandeur of the Mass set against the modesty of the original Motet.

Ave Maria : SATB : Morten Lauridsen : Sheet Music : 00228870 : 680160431168

Morten Lauridsen : Ave Maria

Ave Maria, one of Lauridsen's growing series of a cappella motets on well-known Latin texts, received its world premiere performance by the Los Angeles Master Chorale, conducted by Paul Salamunovich. The composer wrote, "This serene setting was specially composed as a 70th birthday gift to Maestro Salamunovich, who continues to enrich us all through his magnificent and enduring contributions to the art of choral music." The changing moods of the text's two verses are reflected in a pair of strong and evocative themes, and in polyphonic textures enriched with divisis to eight or more parts, and peppered with the composer's trademark "gentle" dissonances.

Stacey V. Gibbs : Eternal Hope

Premiered at the ACDA National Convention in 2017 and written for the Bruce Rogers Series, this piece is a first in many ways. Stacey Gibbs, the reigning king of Spiritual arrangements and Richard Burchard, the modern day motet master, have teamed up and produced this remarkable piece that delivers both of their styles, and without compromises. Opening in Latin with Burchard's setting of Romans 18:21, one expects a beautiful and serious anthem. But the next statement comes from Gibbs in a setting of How Long? that turns the corner. Soon thereafter the choir divides in two and both styles are sung together. It is a stunning achievement that works to a glorious conclusion. Great for festivals and concerts with advanced high school, college and community choirs. Medium in difficulty.

O Vos Omnes : SATB : Chester L. Alwes/Robert Shaw : Sheet Music : 35015782 : 747510046288

Chester L. Alwes/Robert Shaw : O Vos Omnes

A cappella; late 16th century; Latin text; smooth, non-accented vocal lines - In 1989, Robert Shaw commissioned Chester Alwes to make an edition of Tomas Luis de Victoria's motet, O Vos Omnes, which was to be sung as part of the Robert Shaw Summer Festival in France. Robert Shaw has added tempo indication and expressive and dynamic marks, which indicates his feelings about how the piece should be realized in contemporary performance giving modern conductors the guidance of one of America's foremost choral musicians. The English translation is one of the most beautiful and moving Latin sacred texts-"All ye who pass by, see if there is any sorrow like unto my sorrow." Give your choir and congregation the opportunity to experience the music de Victoria wrote for his Master.
