Christ Church Cathedral Choir : Invictus: A Passion : SATB : CD : COR16165

Christ Church Cathedral Choir : Invictus: A Passion

Persecution of the innocent, malevolent authority exerting itself against ideas that threaten and challenge, the power of a peaceful, loving humility in the face of tyranny, the facing-down of fear; all hold profound universal resonance for people of many faiths and those of none. Such is the power of the Passion story, and in his new work, Invictus: A Passion, multi-award-winning composer Howard Goodall has found a route directly to people's hearts, telling the story afresh through his choice of thought provoking texts combined with heart-rending yet inspiring music.

Howard Goodall : Every purpose under the heaven: The King James Bible Oratorio

Every purpose under the heaven,╩arranged for an accompanied mixed voices choir with soprano and tenor solos, is a musical tribute to one of the most important cultural landmarks of ╩Western civilization - the 1611 King James Bible. Written in celebration of the Bible's 400-year anniversary, Goodall has brought together ten of the most expressive passages, from Genesis to Revelation, to create an oratorio that is at once steeped in historic grandeur and utterly relevant in today's society. Musically, it displays all the hallmarks of Goodall's well-loved style - soaring melodies, rhythmic vitality and perfectly crafted lines. However, this work offers singers and audiences something more: an opportunity to introduce new generations to the expressive power and ancient truths of this historic text.

Howard Goodall : Eternal Light: A Requiem : SATB : Songbook : 56-0002

Howard Goodall : Eternal Light: A Requiem

Eternal Light: A Requiem is arranged for an accompanied mixed voices choir with soprano, tenor and baritone solo options. It is by the award-winning British composer and internationally acclaimed broadcaster, Howard Goodall, and is a stunning new Requiem for the modern day. It is intended to provide solace to the grieving, reflecting on the words of the Latin Mass by juxtaposinjg them with poems in English. Speaking about the work, Howard Goodall said, "For me, a modern Requiem is one that acknowledges the unbearable loss and emptiness that accompanies the death of loved ones, a loss that is not easily ameliorated with platitudes about the joy awaiting us in the afterlife. This, like Brahms', is a Requiem for the living, addressing their suffering and endurance, a Requiem focusing on the consequences of interrupted lives."

Goodall's fresh and unorthodox interpretation of the Requiem Mass was released on EMI Classics, performed by Christ Church Cathedral Choir, Oxford and London Musici conducted by Stephen Darlington with soloists Natasha Marsh, Alfie Boe and Christopher Maltman. Duration: 40:00

Songlist: Requiem: Kyrie: Close now thine eyes, Revelation: Factum est silentium, Litany: Belief, Hymn: Lead, kindly light, Lacrymosa: Do not stand at my grave and weep, Dies Irae: In Flanders field, Recordare: Drop, drop slow tears, Revelation: Tum angelus tertius clanxit, Agnus Dei, In Paradisum: Lux aeterna

Howard Goodall : A Little Child There Is Yborn from Enchanted Carols

Originally conceived for the ensemble Enchanted Voices, these carols for SSA voices and organ (or piano) represent the composer's desire for the tunes and texts to be heard in a new and fresh way. Largely contemplative, sometimes set against a gently-undulating foundation, these work well for concert and church use.

A Song of Hope : SSAA divisi : Howard Goodall : 56-0020

Howard Goodall : A Song of Hope

For SSAA voices with a soloist (to which voices add gradually,) the text is as if someone is speaking to their long-dead ancestors. They granted a gift of life and hope for those who came after. Their "names and faiths survive." And just as those in the past were faced with decisions and made them for the benefit of those who follow, we now have the same responsibility. The music is mostly in unison and remains on one staff even when it divides into multiple parts (which it does in only 14 of the 89 measures). This is a singable piece with an easy but supportive piano part, which could be useful for many ensembles in many situations.

All the good you can : SATB : Howard Goodall : 56-0110

Howard Goodall : All the good you can

The often-quoted Charles Wesley text is set here using the congregation as a central element of the music. First the phrases they sing are modeled by a soloist (or soprano section,)  then supported by the soprano line, but eventually the congregation is left on its own to hold a note now and then while the choir moves on. Emotional and compelling, the piece is written with several accompanimental options: Piano can be used, playing from the choral score. The full score shows an optional handbell part (5 bells in a 2-oct. range), a separate organ part, and a special piano part to be used only if done with organ.

Written for the Enchanted Voices CD, this is one of many settings of texts either from the Beatitudes (or springing from them) available from this composer. For soprano solo and women's chorus (mostly SSA but with a few SSAA passages), organ, cello, synthesizer, and handbells, the music has a light, ethereal feeling. "Beati" can be taken as a sort of "Blessed are they" prefix for the movements which are not direct quotes from the Beatitudes. In this case the only English text is at the beginning and end, sung by the soprano soloist. The rest is a Latin setting of Lamentations 1:2 ("Weeping, she hath wept in the night") and John 14:18 ("I will not leave you orphans"). Duration 7:12

This mass setting was commissioned by the Friends of Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford and first performed on Ascension Sunday, 1994. Suitable for both church and concert use, the music is both lyrical and dramatic. The "Benedictus" is for SATB divisi and begins with a short 6/8 declamation, then moves into a section where the rhythmic idea is set in a sort of off-the-beat fashion, with all parts divisi playing against each other. A unison section with the off-the-beat motif follows. A majestic "Hosanna" follows. The "Agnus Dei" is set in a rubato triple meter in a homophonic style with close chords (also divisi.) At the "miserere," the choir 1/choir 2 call and response motif from the "Gloria" returns. That same motif continues into the "dona nobis pacem," as the movement (and the entire Mass) ends with a long decrescendo into a quiet call, "Pacem." Duration 7:33

The texts, written or inspired by women, describe not only human suffering and persecution but also the human capacity for love and humility in the face of tyranny. Composer Howard Goodall is uniquely suited to bring these texts to life with music of emotional clarity and sweeping force. This excerpt is scored for soprano solo, SATB choir and piano. This fourth movement of the larger work is inspired by the extraordinary story of Irena Sendler nee Krzy anowska, a Polish nurse and head of egota, the Polish Council to Aid Jews in the Second World War, whose personal interventions saved the lives of approximately 2,500 Jewish children in the Warsaw Ghetto, smuggling them to safety, acts of humanitarian bravery that eventually caused her arrest and torture by the Gestapo. She is honoured as Righteous Amongst the Nations at Yad Vashem, Jerusalem. The Latin texts of this movement are

Credo from Missa Aedis Christi : SATB divisi : Howard Goodall : 56-0074

Howard Goodall : Credo from Missa Aedis Christi

This mass setting was commissioned by the Friends of Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford and first performed on Ascension Sunday, 1994. Suitable for both church and concert use, the music is both lyrical and dramatic. The mood of the text is faithfully represented in the setting, yet with a lot of originality. The setting is sometimes declamatory, sometimes mysterious, with a "Crucifixus" which is hushed and reverent. Material from the "Kyrie" returns at "Et resurrexit." Sections of this movement are in eight parts. Duration 7:16

Dies Irae: In Flanders fields from Eternal Light: A Requiem : SATB : Howard Goodall : 56-0054

Howard Goodall : Dies Irae: In Flanders fields from Eternal Light: A Requiem

Arranged for SATB choir, two keyboards, strings, and optional harp, with soprano, tenor (optional) and baritone soloists, this fresh and unorthodox interpretation reflects on the words of the Latin Mass by juxtaposing them with poems in English. This movement has no soprano part, it is soloist above and ATB below, giving a rich, dark quality to the music. The tenors and basses (divisi) begin this movement, declaiming "Dies irae, dies illa." Two soloists begin in the "Flanders fields" text above. There is an option for three soloists as the piece evolves. (Soprano, tenor and baritone, the composer gives some options for this.) Soon the choir takes up the poem, yet the Latin text occasionally appears and continues, moving toward a climax on the text "We are the Dead, Short days ago We lived." As the music descends from the high point, the English poem continues, with the choir very softly commenting "Dies irae" as the movement ends. Duration 5:36

Gaudete! from Enchanted Carols : SS : Howard Goodall : 56-0090

Howard Goodall : Gaudete! from Enchanted Carols

Originally conceived for the ensemble Enchanted Voices, these carols for SSA voices and organ (or piano) represent the composer's desire for the tunes and texts to be heard in a new and fresh way. Largely contemplative, sometimes set against a gently-undulating foundation, these work well for concert and church use. Sometimes ethereal, sometimes other-worldly, the pieces succeed in bringing together the ancient purity of the medieval past and the here and now. Duration 2:23

Gloria from Missa Aedis Christi : SATB divisi : Howard Goodall : 56-0073

Howard Goodall : Gloria from Missa Aedis Christi

This mass setting was commissioned by the Friends of Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford and first performed on Ascension Sunday, 1994. Suitable for both church and concert use, the music is both lyrical and dramatic. The "Gloria" is set for SATB divisi (all parts divide) in a quick and rhythmic mixed meter. The movement begins with a sort of call and response where Choir 1 states a motif and Choir 2 responds with the same motif (sometimes at a different pitch level.) A soloist begins the middle section, Piu Allegro ("Qui tollis") and the first material returns, but in unison this time, at "Jesu Christe." Duration 5:30

Hymn: Lead, kindly light from Eternal Light: A Requiem : SATB : Howard Goodall : 56-0052

Howard Goodall : Hymn: Lead, kindly light from Eternal Light: A Requiem

Arranged for SATB choir, two keyboards, strings, and optional harp, with soprano, tenor (optional) and baritone soloists, this fresh and unorthodox interpretation reflects on the words of the Latin Mass by juxtaposing them with poems in English. This movement is a nicely accompanied, homophonic choral setting of the English text by John Henry Newman (1833). Anthem-like and entirely self-sufficient, it is ideal to perform separately apart from the entire work. Duration 2:14

In Paradisum: Lux aeterna from Eternal Light: A Requiem : SATB : Howard Goodall : Sheet Music : 56-0058

Arranged for SATB choir, two keyboards, strings, and optional harp, with soprano, tenor (optional) and baritone soloists, this fresh and unorthodox interpretation reflects on the words of the Latin Mass by juxtaposing them with poems in English. This final movement of the Requiem is set for SATB chorus and two or three soloists. Lilting triads begin the movement. The "Lux Aeterna" is set for soloists with choir accompaniment. There is a restatement of "Lead, Kindly Light" from movement 4, transformed a bit, for soloist with choir accompanying, then the choir sings this material in unison in a powerful, climactic passage. "Requiem aeternum" from the first movement is heard again here with a gently pulsing accompaniment, and the work ends quietly "Luceat eis." Duration 8:59

Lacrymosa: Do not stand at my grave and weep from Eternal Light: A Requiem : SATB : Howard Goodall : 56-0053

Howard Goodall : Lacrymosa: Do not stand at my grave and weep from Eternal Light: A Requiem

Arranged for SATB choir, two keyboards, strings, and optional harp, with soprano, tenor (optional) and baritone soloists, this fresh and unorthodox interpretation reflects on the words of the Latin Mass by juxtaposing them with poems in English. A baritone solo on the English text begins the movement ("Do not stand at my grave and weep...) and soon the choir enters to accompany the soloist chordally on the "Lacrymosa, dies illa" text. That's the extent of the Latin used in this movement, and the baritone over choir setup continues until the end. Somber and reflective, the choir never sings above mezzo piano. Duration 3:03
