A.R. Rahman : Balleilakka : SATB : 01 Songbook : S-339

A.R. Rahman : Balleilakka

Balleilakka is a song from the Tamil film Sivaji, which means "The Boss." Tamil is the language of the Southern Indian province of Tamil Nadu whose capital, Chennai (Madras under British rule) is India's third-largest city and A.R. Rahman's home. An old language dating back to before 300 B.C., Tamil is the native language of Singapore and Sri Lanka as well as tens of millions of Indians (there are almost 2,000 newspapers in print in Tamil today of which about 350 are daily papers). The text of this piece is a tongue-twister lamenting how traditional Indian culture is being subsumed and listing the speaker's memories of his homeland in increasingly faster syllabic patterns. Often referred to as "The Indian Mozart", A.R. Rahman writes at least as fast, having completed over 100 film scores since 1992. His soundtracks have sold more than 300 million copies worldwide, making him one of the best-selling recording artists of all time. He has won fourteen of India's Filmfare awards (the equivalent of the Oscar) and his first two Academy Awards in 2008, one for "Jai Ho" being the Best Song of the Year.

Various Arrangers : Music from Mongolia

The exuberant arrangement of an Eastern Inner Mongolian folk song "Dorven Dalai' exhorts everyone from the Four Seas (the "four corners of the earth" or all nations) to fill their wine bowls with the best of wine, to rejoice and sing and enjoy this moment of happiness together. "Naiman Sharag" - Mongolian songs often praise horses, real and legendary, reflecting the close relationship between horses and humans. A 13th century chronicle refers to the eight chestnut horses of Chinggis Khan, and they have thus become a symbol of national identity which embodies the Mongol's love for their native language and culture. Indigenous Mongolian musical rhythms are often patterned after the rhythm of a running horse. Such rhythms represent one of the major ethnic features of Mongolian music, and can be found throughout this piece. "Zeregleent Gobi" was written for the Inner Mongolian Youth Chorus Troupe and "Bless Us, O God" is an a cappella setting of a Mongolian prayer.

Songlist: Dorven Dalai (The Four Seas), Naiman Sharag (Eight Chestnut Horses), Zeregleent Gobi (Mirage on the Gobi Desert), Bless Us, O God

Various Arrangers : Folk Songs of the Philippines

Chua-ay is based on a popular folksong in the Philippines that depicts the Igorot tribes at work, pounding rice by means of a huge mortar and heavily weighted posts in order to separate the rice grains from their outer shells or husks. The piece begins with bird-calls serenely chanted by two sopranos and followed by a set of rhythmic vari- ations on the repetitive three-note theme of Chua-ay. Foot stomps suggest the mortar and pestle action that also enhances the earthy character of this northern folksong. Leron, Leron sinta or "My Dear, Little Leron," is a popular Filipino folk song from the Tagalog region. It is traditionally a work song, reprsenting those who work in the fields harvesting fruits, though the origin is unclear due to the lack of scholarly literature that examines Philippine folk music. Because of its catchy tune, it is often presented as a children's song, though some parts of the text may have been meant for a more mature audience. Some sources also refer to it as a courtship song. "Ilay Gandangan" is a popular piece among Filipino choirs. Derived from a sun chant of the Maguindanao tribe, the people call on the sun god, Ilay, to end the rain that is covering the land.

Songlist: Chua-ay , Ilay Gandangan, Leron, Leron Sinta, Mamayog Akun

Various Arrangers : Japanese Folk Songs

Haiku is a Japanese form of poetry comprised of three lines of five, seven, and five syllables. Jerry Estes has crafted a set of four short pieces set to original haiku... one for each season of the year. All are beautiful in their simplicity. Well suited for Orff accompaniment; bells and rhythm instrument parts are included in the publication. An outstanding learning and performing piece for 2-part choirs. A delicate melody swirls and twirls like drifting snow in this tasteful arrangement of a traditional Japanese school song "Yuki". The three short Japanese phrases (and several English words) are easy-to-learn and bring to mind icy images of wintertime. "Uji River" is the most unique multicultural piece you will sing this year. A primarily English text tells the spectacular story of an ancient Japanese fishing tradition on the Uji River. And a traditional Asian folk melody floats above a gentle koto-like piano. Magical for treble voices, and highly effective when TB singers sound like fishermen. Tsuki means "moon," and is one of just a few Japanese words sung in this pentatonic scale-based song. Other words describe the beauty of the Japanese moon throughout the year. A captivating and memorable piece.

Zhou Long : Two Poems from the Book of Songs : SSAATTBB : 01 Songbook : 9780193865198

Zhou Long : Two Poems from the Book of Songs

The text from this work is selected from The Book of Songs, China's earliest anthology of poetry consisting of 305 songs popular between the 11th and 6tth centuries B.C. More than half of them are folk songs from various parts of the country, while the rest are ceremonial or festive songs sung at court or at banquets and hymns used during sacrifices to the gods or one's ancestors. Most of the poems are written in a simple and natural style to times and have been highly appreciated throughout the ages and have exerted a profound influence on the development of Chinese literature. The composer has chosen an English translation of the two poems so that this oldest of China's literary classics may be better understood. The musical style is not restricted to the traditional folk song form in pentatonic scale: freer melodic expression is achieved through atonal means and the style of a rustic song is retained. "The Peach Tree" (Tao Yao) is concerned with the popular marriage customs, where woman are considered the possession of men. "Gathering Plantain" (Fou Yi) is a work song sung by women as they gather plantain grass.

A bestseller in a new voicing! This stunning arrangement of the popular Korean folk song speaks of Ahrirang Hill outside of Seoul, a location believed to be a symbol of personal contentment and triumph. Capturing the style of Korean music, which is highly personal and tender with sentiments of love and peace, this arrangement also illustrates the contrast between Korean and Western music, with the middle section purposely crafted using common Western chords and harmonies. The canonic nature of the modal melody presents an excellent opportunity to develop independent part singing.

Chant for a Long Day is inspired by two monophonic chants for women, the Mersiyet from Pakistan, and the "waulking songs" from the island of Barra in the Hebrides.

The words evoke images of physical and spiritual survival common to many cultures, as well as the images of femininity and womanhood that are also shared by peoples from around the world.
