Josquin Desprez : Missa De beata

Review: Missa de Beata Virgine is a musical setting of the Ordinary of the Mass, by Renaissance composer Josquin des Prez. A late work, probably composed or assembled around 1510, it was the most popular of his masses in the 16th century. The Missa de Beata Virgine is unusual among Josquin's masses in that the first two movements are for four voices, and the last three for five, with the fifth voice derived canonically. Like most musical settings of the mass Ordinary, it is in five sections, or movements. It uses different plainsong chants for each movement, and is a paraphrase mass, one in which the original chants are elaborated, broken up, passed between voices, or sung in different voices simultaneously. The movements differ in their treatment of the source plainchant. The Kyrie has the chant in all voices, imitatively and paraphrased; the Gloria treats the chant as a cantus firmus, migrating it from voice to voice. Tonally, both movements end on G, and most of their cadences are on G or D. The Credo, the first movement for five voices, ends with a surprising Phrygian cadence on E, and uses canonic techniques more prominently than in the preceding movements.

Songlist: Missa De beata, Kyrie 1, Christe, Kyrie 2, Et in terra, Qui tollis, Cum Sancto, Credo sections, Sanctus, Pleni sunt caeli, Hosanna, Benedictus, Agnus Dei 1, Agnus Dei 2, Agnus Dei 3

K. Scott Warren : Three Spirituals

Review: This lively setting of 'Ain'-a That Good News' is perfect for all choirs looking to energize any church service or concert. A chromatic modulation jump starts each new verse, as the energy and excitement is ratcheted up a notch. The canon in the penultimate verse adds variety to the otherwise homophonic texture, and the music finishes brightly with volume and excitement. Warren rejuvenates 'Go Tell it on the Mountain' by skilfully varying the metre between 7/8 and 6/8 in the refrain and presenting each verse differently. This clever arrangement is perfectly suited for concerts and church services alike. In the haunting and plaintive setting of 'Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child,' Warren creatively evokes a stark tone of loneliness and despair with descending chromatic inner voices in the opening. What follows is a rich, reflective harmonic texture filled with chromatic surprises.

Songlist: Ain'-a That Good News, Go, tell it on the mountain, Sometimes I feel like a motherless child

Karl Jenkins : Adiemus Colores

Review: Adiemus Colores marks Karl Jenkins' return after ten years to the series that helped make his name, and it draws inspiration from the sights, sounds, colors and rhythms of Latin American music. As with the original Adiemus, Jenkins combines classical principles with the flavors of world and ethnic music supported by lively percussion. His choral writing adopts an invented language with no meaning, like scat singing in jazz. Each movement is named in Spanish after a color and explores the mood each evokes for the composer, embracing Brazilian samba, Argentinian tango and Spanish bolero. Adiemus Colores is scored for choir and ensemble with soloists, with a total duration of 75 minutes. Performance materials are available on hire.

Songlist: Cancion amearilla, Cancion violeta, Cancion negra, Cancion rosa, Cancion azul, Cancion turquesa, Cancion naranja, Cancion verde, Cancion blanca, Cancion dorada, Cancion plateada, Cancion roja

Kerry Marsh : A Cappella Jazz for Mixed Voices

Review: An original composition, 'Occam's Edge' is an aggressive a cappella chart that will challenge your singers, but is quite attainable. It comes off almost as a fusion tune because of the groove, the stabbing lush chords and quickly moving harmony. A scat solo is featured and a vocal percussionist is important to the performance. An exciting shout section connects the solo section and the head-out. This one is, again, like nothing you've ever heard vocalists sing! Commissioned by Valenica High School, 'His Eye is on the Sparrow' starts out simply as a rubato ballad with a soulful solo, but then adds vocal percussion in a jazz waltz groove. When the vocals come in after a short percussion break, it sounds highly reminiscent of a Take 6 tune with quickly moving harmonies, lots of great dominant sounds and exciting hits in the background vocals. This will surely be a crowd pleaser and a fun and challenging chart to sing. The arrangement of 'Mas Alla,' features a tenor soloist. The wonderful Spanish lyric was written by Pedro Aznar. Some thick and challenging harmony, but an attainable and worthwhile chart for most college vocal jazz groups. A completely new perspective on the great Pat Metheny composition, with 'Unequity Road,' Marsh has transformed a powerfully aggressive and asymmetrical chart into a simple, floating and mesmerizing tribute to a great set of chord changes and a beautiful melody that is almost hidden in Metheny's original performance on Bright Size Life. or vocalists who may not have been exposed to the harmonies of cutting-edge big band writers Maria Schneider, Jim McNeely and Vince Mendoza,'The Big Crunch is a great learning piece. It is also a moody and yet hard-grooving a cappella chart that will provide a fun challenge to your group. A very open solo section is included as well as a nicely crafted shout section that builds to a great climax before leading into the head-out. Vocal percussion is necessary on this chart.

Songlist: His Eye Is On The Sparrow, Occam's Edge, The Big Crunch, Unequity Road, Mas Alla

King's Singers : The Quiet Heart: Choral Essays Vol 1

Review: From the King's Singers' exquisite album The Quiet Heart - Choral Essays Volume 1, drawn from the sacred repertoire of the Salvation Army, these 13 selections are a reflective musical journey into the spirit. The invitation to perform in March 2005 as guest of the marvellous Hendon Salvation Army Band in heir special concert "Hendon Highlights" at London's Royal Festival Hall led to a relationship which resulted in the re-arranging and recording of 19 beautiful hymns for the CD, The Quiet Heart, on the SP&S label. Rather then just perform what were in many cases simple four-part hymns, they decided to take advantage of their six-part status, and so the hymns were mostly re-arranged with the inclusion of low 5ths to complement bass notes, double tunes (soprano and baritone) and the occasional extra harmony note. Some had Piano accompaniment, so for these they either converted them into vocal accompaniments or wrote a new vocal pattern to go with the tune. So here is the companion volume to the CD, in which we have included 13 of the tracks in the exact voicings as heard on the album. They work equally well in a concert hall or in a church.

Songlist: All For Thee, By His Hand, Christ's Part, Even Me, Grant Us Thy Peace, His Provision, Home To Thee (From Reflections), In The Secret Of Thy Presence, Intercede, O Lord, The Quiet Heart, Spirit Divine, To The Hills, When We Cannot See Our Way

Kirke Mechem : Choral Collection

Review: Kirke Mechem is a prolific American composer with a catalogue of over 250 works. He enjoys an international presence, as ASCAP recently registered concert performances of his music in 42 countries. This is a collection of his works for unaccompanied chorus. From Psalm 137, "By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion," this a cappella motet is filled with longing and deep emotion. "Agnus De" is a stunningly beautiful new setting of the Latin text, this work is vocally expressive and immensely rewarding in performance. The old American folksong "Too Young To Marry" provides the text for this setting. The composer has adapted into an original madrigal, using fa-la-la refrains to replace the traditional nonsense syllables. "They That Mourn" forms a requiem in miniature, with varied vocal textures and harmonies and dynamic contrasts. This setting is new music to the words of an old spiritual "Kum Ba Ya". Believed to come from the Gullah language of the South Carolina sea islands, this setting explores the rhythmic possibilities of the words and the striking musical qualities of the consonants and vowels.

Songlist: By The Rivers of Babylon, Agnus Dei, Papageno and the Prince, Too Young to Marry, They That Mourn, Kum Ba Ya

Larry Gordon and Anthony Barrand (Editors) : Northern Harmony Book (5th edition)

Review: Plain Tunes, Hymns and Anthems from the New England Singing School Tradition. These tunes have been taught to singers of every age, ability, background and musical taste. They work. There is, perhaps, no other easily accessible choral music that is as much fun to sing. The music is stark, rhythmic, frequently modal, and very distinctive. The latest edition of Northern Harmony is greatly expanded, with 55 new songs, 150 songs in all. Half are by early New England composers from the years 1770-1810, most of them not otherwise available in modern shape-note editions. The other half are by living composers writing in the shape-note style. The book is beautifully and sturdily bound, and all songs have been newly typeset in extremely clear shape-note notation. A marvelous collection for shape-note singers, school and community choirs, and recreational singers of every kind.

Lee R. Kesselman : Nights in Armor

Review: Nights in Armor is a four-movement suite for a cappella chorus evoking the legend of King Arthur as related by Alfred, Lord Tennyson. The first movement "Merlin's Riddle" is a quirky, dance-like incantation, in which the famous sorcerer prophesies Arthur's coming. The second movement "The Knight and His Queen" is an imagined poem from the knight Lancelot to Queen Guinevere expressively calls forth feelings of unfulfillable love. "Tristram's Madrigal" - Sprightly, teasing music celebrates the joys of living in the moment, boldly blind to its consequences. "Arthur's Final Words" are the words of the mortally wounded King Arthur reflecting on life and the quest for ideals; the music artfully gives life to this wisdom.

Lee R. Kesselman : Scottish Folk Songs

Review: "Loch Lomond" is one of the most famous of all Scottish song - a song of friendship, of love, and of parting. While "Auld Lang Syne" has become one of the most familiar in our culture, oft used for ushering in the new year, it remains a heartfelt air, extolling enduring friendship and waxing nostalgic over the passage of time. "The Birks Of Aberfeldy" is a dance piece! Let the rhythm and accents hold sway as the piano rolics and the singers tease, tempt, cajole and invite the Bonnie Lassie! Also Included in this package is the hauntingly beautiful "Skye Boat Song," and "Afton Water."

Lewis Henry Horton : The A Cappella Primer

Review: A first introduction to a cappella singing containing a choice repertoire of twenty choruses with pedagogical suggestions for interpretation. The choruses in this collection appear in the progressive order of their respective degrees of difficulty: First, two-part music, with occasional four-part endings; then, the use of the melodic style and imitation afforded by rounds and canons; and finally, choice material in four-part harmony. In these, special attention has been given to the melodic line of the harmony parts; awkward skips have been avoided, while both smooth melodic line and variety have been sought within the easy compass of youthful voices. Piano, or preferably reed organ if available, may be used freely while teaching the parts, but should be omitted as soon as the parts have been learned, and should, however, be used occasionally during rehearsal in order to test for accuracy in pitch.

Songlist: Let Us Sing (cannon), Whistle, Mary, Whistle, Billy Boy, A Round of Rounds, Angels We Have Heard On High, All Through The Night, March Of The Kings, Song From "Pippa Passes", O How Lovely Is The Evening, Go Down, Moses, Steal Away, Riggety-Jig, Stars Of The Summer Night, Neighbors, Here I Have A Tasty Pie, Gaily The Troubadour, To Celia, Good King Wenceslas, Years Of Peace, Bendemeer's Stream

Lionel Dakers / John Scott (Edited by) : Ash Wednesday to Easter for Choirs

Review: This collection aims to provide a comprehensive survey of a highly significant part of the Christian Year: Ash Wednesday and Lent, Passiontide, Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter. Its contents span all musical periods of what is a marvellously rich area of church music and it contains much that is not widely available elsewhere under one cover. Ash Wednesday to Easter for Choirs includes a number of less familiar works together with new or recent arrangements of well-known tunes, such as Philip Ledger's 'This joyful Eastertide', Simon Lindley's 'Now the green blade riseth', and Bob Chilcott's setting of 'Were you there?'. Some of the anthems, for example Richard Shephard's 'Sing, my tongue' and Grayston Ives' 'Ride on', have been newly commissioned specifically for this collection, thus filling certain gaps. Wherever possible new practical performing editions of 16th-century repertoire have been prepared, reflecting current scholarship and including an English singing translation and, where, the original had none, a dynamic scheme. Such dynamics are the editors' suggestions only and may be freely ignored or adapted. Note values have in some instances been halved. Unaccompanied items include keyboard reductions for rehearsal.

Songlist: Lent Prose, Civitas sancti tui (Bow tine ear, O Lord), Lord, for thy tender mercy's sake, The Litany (BCP), The Litany (ASB), Peccantem me quotidie, Agnus Dei, Like as the Hart, Drop, drop, slow tears, Wash me throughly, Christus factus est, The Lamentation, Jesu, grant me this I pray, God so loved the world, Ecce quomodo moritur justus, Adoramus te, Christe, God so loved the world, The Feast of Palms, Hosianna dem Sohne Davids, Hosianna to the Son of David, Ride on, Ingrediente Domino, Pueri Hebraeorum, In the heart where love is abiding, Pange lingua / Of the glorious Body telling, Tantum ergo, Ave verum corpus, A new commandment, Sing, my tongue, In the departure of the Lord, and more

Matthew Harris : Two Lorca Songs

Review: Two Lorca Songs are based on the first major work "Poema del Cante Jondo" (Poem of the Deep Song) of the famous Spanish poet Garcia Lorca. Las Seis Cuerdas was inspired by the poem's haunting melancholy. Sopranos and altos sing falling, weeping lines while underneath basses and tenors have wide guitar-like intervals. Crotalo, written for choral competition, is meant to display choral virtuosity. It is set as a flamenco: the percussive c's and t's from the repeated word "crotalo" make a rhythmical clicking like that of castanets.

Songlist: Crotalo, Las Seis Cuerdas

Melodie Tunney : Sacred A Cappella

Review: Melody Tunney is widely known for her sacred solo performances with husband Dick, and for their recordings and numerous producing projects including First Call, but Mel's arranging and writing talents far exceed even her singing! This extraordinary arrangement of "What Wondrous Love Is This' has been requested time and time again by singers out there who have watched her perform it! Arranged with an Alto Solo lead, which is signature Melody Tunney, 'Thou Didst Leave Thy Throne' is just stunning! Emotion packed and reverent, this stirring choral evokes worship. With some degree of ability required, and the majority of the parts divisi, this arrangement will be fun and challenging! Tunney continues her gorgeous arranging skills with a stunning a cappella setting of 'Holy, Holy, Holy.' Her contemporary style and brilliant use of harmonization makes this an unforgettable setting for worship of all style.

Songlist: What Child Is This?, What Wondrous Love Is This?, Thou Didst Leave Thy Throne, Holy, Holy, Holy

Melodious Accord - Alice Parker : Sweet Manna

Review: The 17 varied early American songs of praise found in songbooks published between 1790 and 1830 in "Sweet Manna" give us a glimpse of the musical life of the early settlers and the changing modes of Christian worship as the country developed. The rich variety of lyrics and tunes include cheerful gathering songs like "My God, the Spring of All My Joy;" slow, reflective moods as in "Deep Distress and Troubled Thoughts;" sprightly dances: "When Some Kind Shepherd from His Fold;" and joyous marches: "My Soul, Triumphant in the Lord." Fuguing tunes like "How Pleased and Blessed Was I" and "Through Every Age, Eternal God" release their energies; while more modal melodies like "Return, O God of Love, Return" shed a quiet grace. The mixed a cappella voices of MMA are strong and soaring, and these powerful songs are sung with spirit and feeling, and it is easy to imagine being in the congregations where they were first sung, joining in wonderful choruses of praise.

Songlist: Almighty Maker, God, My Thoughts, That Often Mount the Skies, When Some Kind Shepherd from His Fold, Ye Boundless Realms of Joy, How Pleased and Blessed Was I, From Deep Distress and Troubled Thoughts, What Is Our God, or What His Name, My Soul, Triumphant in the Lord, To God, in Whom I Trust, Hear Me, O Lord, nor Hide Thy Face, My Soul, the Great Creator Praise, How Short and Hasty Is Our Life, How Soft the Words My Savior Speaks, Through Every Age, Eternal God, Return, O God of Love, Return, My God! The Spring of All My Joys, Brethren, We Have Met to Worship

Melodious Accord - Alice Parker : Take Me To The Water

Review: The Musicians of Melodious Accord are a 16-voice professional chorus in New York City, offering recordings and concerts of many styles. Their conductor, Alice Parker, is internationally known as a composer, arranger, conductor and teacher, with a passion for true folksongs. "Take Me to the Water" is the command, request and plea (founded on John 4:14) made by those who seek the "well of water springing up into everlasting life." It serves as a unifying phrase for the powerful African-American spiritual songs in this collection, which come from the mid-19th century and earlier, from such sources as "Slave Songs," published in NY in 1867. 13 a cappella songs, sung with tremendous feeling, strength and sweetness by the MMA, from "I Know the Lord," "Come On Up to Bright Glory" and "Hush! Hush!" to "Free at Last," the title tune, and "Who'll Be a Witness." "Take Me" is a beautiful, inspirational collection!

Songlist: I Know the Lord, Stayed on Jesus, Come On Up to Bright Glory, Don't Be Weary, Traveler, Hush! Hush!, We WIll March Through the Valley, He Is King of Kings, Let Us Break Bread Together, Is There Anybody Here, Free At Last, Take Me to the Water, Cert'nly, Lord, Who'll Be A Witness
