We pride ourselves on carrying a small, tightly curated, and excellent collection of new choral music, and we love it so much we want to make sure it’s available for anyone who wants to perform it. Whenever possible, we (well, the composers usually) create arrangements of each piece for a variety choir types, so if you hear something you like but direct a men’s chorus, there is plenty for you to look at. Here are some of the latest pieces to check out (links to recording and score previews included):
A lyrical setting of the Alleluia with an underlying ostinato chant that is both solemn and passionate. This is a stirring piece and makes a powerful opening number. It can be a cappella or with an optional organ accompaniment.
This hypnotic, chant-like piece, is both a choir and audience favorite. It’s got a touch of exotic flavor and great rhythmic energy juxtaposed with jazz-like harmonies. A study in long phrases, rhythmic unity, and breath control.
A deeply lyrical piece composed of a soaring melody layered upon itself. This piece is a movement from the larger cantata Tse Go La (coming soon!) and gives ample opportunity for soloists to shine and offers satisfying lines for the singers. Good for teaching phrasing and musical expression, as well as stylistic ornamentation.
Fast paced and energetic, this danceable piece incorporates foot stomps and spoken text interspersed with catchy melodies. It is a movement from the larger cantata Tse Go La (coming soon!). A great piece for teaching rhythmic precision that is a favorite of both singers and audience.
Please note all recordings and score samples on the site will be for the piece’s original choir type. I hope that doesn’t cause any confusion! You can email firstname.lastname@example.org to request perusal scores for specific choir arrangements.
