Cantus : A Cappella Arrangements  : TTBB : Sheet Music Collection

Cantus : A Cappella Arrangements

Kenneth Jennings' settings of two Dylan Thomas poems 'Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night,' and And Death Shall Have No Dominion' are both beautiful arrangements. 'Loch Lomond' is a Scottish folk song that dates back to the Jacobite Rebellion. Care has been taken to preserve the authenticity of the language in this arrangement, with the help of a ipa chart in the performance notes of this chart. With an energetic, strong opening and a more lyric, gentle section in the middle, 'Alleluia' provides an overall sense of the joy we experience while praising god. 'Let the Bullgine Tun,' a vigorous, humorous, traditional sea chantey is guaranteed to delight both singers and audiences.

Songlist: Do Not Go Gentle Into The Night, Let the Bullgine Run, Loch Lomond, Alleluia, Amen, And Death Shall Have No Dominion

Deep River : TTBB : H T Burleigh : Traditional : Cantus : Sheet Music : 5583

H T Burleigh : Deep River

A powerful and somber spiritual from Harry T. Burleigh with helpful edits for men's choir from Cantus. Much of the melody is given to Bass 1 as others hum the rich harmonies. A brief animato section builds to a glorious forte before it winds back to the same dramatic and chromatic chord progression that opened the piece.
