Various Arrangers : Medieval Songs for Upper Voices

Our fascination with the music of the medieval era continues to grow and grow. This collection with contemporary notation and helpful performance options offers the modern choir an opportunity to celebrate the music of the past. "If Ye Love Me" is one of the most recognized anthems from the English Renaissance, in a new adaptation specifically geared to the limits of younger voices and middle school choirs. Intimate and expressive, this would work well in both concert and worship settings, and provides a great way to introduce young singers to historical choral works. "Domine Fili Unigenite" features canonic imitation, vocal ostinati, and delicately intertwining melodies, this a cappella setting is stunning. "Gloria Patri" has powerful antiphonal effect provides a dramatic vehicle for the English or Latin text! An appealing Renaissance work for both your mixed and treble ensembles! "Exultate Justi" is the famous Psalm 33 motet by Lodovico Grossi da Viadana adapted for younger ensembles. This composition is written in the typical Renaissance style of motets (a cappella sacred works) and madrigals (a cappella secular works). "Celebrate This Day Together" - energetic and rhythmic 16th-century piece is an excellent introduction to the music of the Renaissance. Includes secular or Christmas lyrics and optional hand drum.

Songlist: Domine Fili Unigenite, Exultate Justi, Gaudete Christus est natus, Celebrate This Day Together, There is no rose, Alleluia

Various Arrangers : Rennaissance Songs for Female Voices

"Canzonette a Tre" - These four songs describe the pangs of thwarted romantic love: torment, desire, and longing. (The third may be the world's only love song declaring envy of a flea--including hopping rhythms.) These songs include a wide range of Renaissance musical devices, including imitation, cadential suspensions, metric changes, and dance-like rhythms. Since they are short and strophic, they give your singers multiple chances of mastering idioms of Renaissance polyphony on a small scale. "Virgines Prudentes" - This very easy double chorus piece, with Chorus I-II echoes, is a wonderful introduction to the world of more than four parts. The text, based on the parable of the wise and foolish virgins, is suitable for Advent. "Congratulamini Mihi Omnes" - "Rejoice with me, all ye who love the Lord" is the beginning of the text, expressing Mary's joy in a first-person responsory text incorporating parts of the Magnificat. This sturdy polyphonic setting concludes with an exultant homophonic section in triple meter. "Tragico Tecti Syrmate" - This angels' lament for the destruction of a city is the crown of Renaissance music for upper voices. While each of the largely syllabic parts is independent, together they interweave in a stately harmonic rhythm, conveying both the dignity of formal mourning, and the richness of the city and its people that are no more.

Songlist: Virgines Prudentes, Canzonette a Tre, Congratulamini Mihi Omnes, Tragico Tecti Syrmate, O Magnum Mysterium

Various Arrangers : Mediaeval Songs for Female Voices

"O Virgin Resplendent" - A late medieval canon, moving almost entirely in fluid eighth-note triplets, comes to rest at the end of each phrase. Edited by Mark Winges for the Piedmont Children's Choirs, this piece works beautifully as a processional. "Marriage bed of Chastity" - This lively 13th-century conductus from the Las Huelgas manuscript, with added optional percussion parts, makes a very effective processional. Mary is the "marriage bed of chastity" sought by God the Father for bearing the Son. "O frondens virga" - This new edition of Hildegard's antiphon places it in its liturgical context, pairing it with a plainchant "Magnificat" (included in this edition by William Flynn). The reprise of the antiphon has an optional added voice in organum, reflecting medieval performance practice. Latin, with full translation and historical and performance notes. "Dancing" - "I stumble and tumble," begins this freely-rendered medieval text, set in 6/4 over a delightfully lurching scat ostinato in 12/8. Written for the women of the Cornell University Chorus, it works easily when conducted in a big 2. English. "Circle" - In this medieval mystic text the circle is an image for meditation, first excluding, then embracing, the world. The musical setting reflects the image with contracting and expanding textures, and a soprano solo.

Songlist: O Virgo Splendens (O Virgin Resplendent), Castitatis thalamum (Marriage bed of chastity), O frondens virga (O branch, coming into leaf), Dancing, Circle

Various Arrangers : Early Music for Christmas : SSAA Upper : Sheet Music Collection

Various Arrangers : Early Music for Christmas

The carol text "The Burning Babe" is by the same sixteenth-century poet--Robert Southwell--as the better-known "This Little Babe." Like its sister text, it explores an unusual metaphor for the infant Jesus--in this case, a refining fire which purifies the believer. The strophic setting, with soprano solo, is dissonant and chromatic, with edgy rhythms: a fine selection to balance against sweeter Christmas settings. This raucous arrangement of "Wassailin'" with "doo-wah" patterns goes "all over the town" in its depiction of a rowdy Christmas feast. Try it as a change of pace at a madrigal dinner! Choral drones, small percussion, and canon are some of the simple but extremely effective devices in this arrangement of "Puer Nobis Nascitur" in 6/8 time. This piece will make a fine processional for your Christmas concert. This gentle, homophonic setting of "Dormi, Jesu!", with its low tessitura and repeated rhythmic pattern, would definitely comfort the baby. This piece is perfect for setting a quiet mood for a Christmas service or concert. "O Regem Coeli " - This loveliest of all Christmas motets for upper voices, long out of print in the U.S., is newly edited from the original print of 1572, with literal word-by-word and prose translations and keyboard reduction.

Songlist: Dormi, Jesu!, Wassailin', O Regem Coeli, The Burning Babe, Puer Nobis Nascitur
