Craig McLeish : The Negro Speaks of Rivers : SATB : 01 Songbook : 884088996130 : 1780387938 : 14042196

Craig McLeish : The Negro Speaks of Rivers

Craig McLeish writes of The Negro Speaks of Rivers; Langston Hughes (1902-1967) was the first black American to earn his living from writing. He was an innovator of jazz poetry, becoming part of the Harlem Renaissance in the 1920s and 1930s. He wrote plays, short stories, novels, and his poetry was widely read. He was also a journalist, columnist and lecturer. The Negro Speaks of Rivers was perhaps his earliest published work, written when only 17 and while travelling by train to Mexico to visit his father. As the train crossed the Mississippi he suddenly began thinking about how rivers had impacted on Negro history, particularly in the fight against slavery. The four rivers mentioned in the poem lent themselves to using musical influences from those particular regions.

Songlist: I've Known Rivers, The Congo, The Euphrates, The Mississippi, The Nile

Eric Whitacre : Three Flower Songs

Go, Lovely Rose is structured around the cyclical life of a rose, and is connected throughout by the opening 'rose motif,' a seed that begins on the tonic and grows in all directions before it blossoms, dies and grows again. Each season is represented. With A Lily In Your Hand is from a prodigious series of poems arranged in thematic "suites," later collected and in 1983 published as Suites. The original poem is titled: Curva. I Hide Myself is a simple little song. All of the musical suggestions come from a careful study of the poem, a quiet, passionate soul occasionally speaking a little bolder than the age will allow. She loves almost to the point of distraction, and this mood must prevail in the performance: shy and sullen, her passion surging to the surface only to sink back into the silence that is herself.

Songlist: Go, Lovely Rose , With a Lily in Your Hand , I Hide Myself

Felix Mendelssohn : Three Choral Songs

'The Nightingale (Die Nachtigall)' was composted on June 19, 1843 and published as No. 4 in Sechs Lieder, Op 59. Words by Johann Wolfgang von Goeth, based on a Greek folksong published in 'Chants populaires de la Grece moderne' with French translations by Claude Charles Fauriel accompanying the original texts. Goethe's version, published in 1827 is entitled 'Landlich, though Mendelssohn preferred the title given here. 'The Woodland Singers (Die Waldvogelein)' was composed on June 19, 1843 and published as No 4 in Sechs Lieder, Op 88. The author of the words, given simply as Scutz, is almost certainly heinrich Schutz who published a volume of 'Vermischte Gedichte' at Karlsruhe in 1841. 'Song for the New Year (Neujahrslied)' was composed on August 8, 1844 and published posthumously as No 1 in Sechs Lieder, Op 88. Words by Johann Peter Hebel (1760-1826).

Francis Poulenc : Sept Chansons

Poulenc was a member of Les Six, a group of young French composers, Milhaud, Auric, Durey, Honegger and Tailleferre, who also had links with Erik Satie and Jean Cocteau. He embraced the Dada movement's techniques, creating melodies that would have challenged what was considered appropriate for Parisian music halls. Here is a fine set of his unaccompanied choral works. With English translation by Robert Hess.

Songlist: La Blanche Neige, A peine defiguree (Barely Disfigured), Par une nuit nouvelle (Through a New Light), Tous les droits (All the Rights), Belle et ressemblante (Beautiful and Resembling), Marie, Luire (To Dawn)

A wide-ranging quintessentially English setting of lyrical poetry by Robert Bridges, resulting in some of the finest unaccompanied part songs of the period. There is a great deal of variety in the set from the simple and direct setting of I praise the tender flower, through the elated emotions of My spirit sang all day, to the sultry summer by the river in Clear and gentle stream and the weighty emotions expressed in the last song Wherefore tonight so full of care.

Songlist: I Praise the Tender Flower, I Have Loved Flowers that Fade, My Spirit Sang All Day, Clear and Gentle Stream, Nightingales, Hast on, my joys!, Wherefore to-night so full of care

Gerald Finzi : A Cappella Compositions

Gerald Finzi is one of the most admired British composers of the 20th Century. His music embraces a rich variety of moods, from elegiac lyricism, through spiritual reflection, to radiant joy. Finzi epitomised much that was characteristic of English Music, Literature and Landscape. He was part of that generation of composers who came to maturity in the middle of the 20th century. He was friends with Ralph Vaughan Williams, Edmund Rubbra, Howard Ferguson, Arthur Bliss and Robin Milford. The beautiful and sensitive nature of Gerald Finzi's compositions is displayed in these six excellent 4-part arrangements.

Songlist: All This Night, I Praise the Tender Flower, Clear and Gentle Stream, Wherefore Tonight So Full of Care, White-Flowering Days

Giles Swayne : The Human Heart : SATB : 01 Songbook : 884088622985 : 14037661

Giles Swayne : The Human Heart

The human heart was written in February 2009, after I heard a performance of John Tavener's haunting setting of The Lamb which made me want to see what I could do with Blake's Songs of Innocence and Experience. I had made an elaborate choral setting of The Tiger in 1995 for the National Youth Choir of Great Britain; but this time I wanted to keep things simpler and stick to four-part SATB choir, with a few small solos.

The human heart is a genuine song-cycle, in that each song leads to the next, and there is an overall theme which is aptly summed up by the title: beneath Blake's mystical and socially subversive language (which are very much the product of his time) his abiding concern seems to me the co-existence of good and evil within the human heart, and the violent contradictions which this causes. Musically, these songs are quite simple: all of them except The Fly are mainly in two real parts, with sopranos and tenors singing one line in octaves, and altos and basses the other, in varying forms of canon.

Gordan Hamilton : The Facebook Song

Made popular on Toy Story 3 = Awesome this humorous piece simultaneously ridicules and celebrates user-generated content. The lyrical main theme rolls around in vibrant familiarity, always rocking between the major keys of C# and E. This tension between genuine and mock exuberance is the central irony of the piece.
