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

Nancy Wertsch : Shakespeare Suite

Review: The music here is meant to evoke the amorous thoughts and feelings of young lovers in Shakespeare's England. "It Was A Lover and His Lass" is a musical picture of a pair of happy young lovers meandering through the lush green countryside and enjoying the warmth of a spring day. It is obvious that these tow are a part of the total flowering spring. "Oh Mistress Mine" is a tender appeal by the young lover imploring his beloved to roaming and come to him. He employs various arguments to convince her that love should happen now and not later. His ardent desire is reflected in the music. However, at the end of the piece his love remains unrequited. In "Daffodils" there is so much youthful energy that it almost gets out of control. The key here is "tumbling." The whole piece goes in spurts and stops, with duddilly dum dum's and oo's containing little naughty thoughts here and there which can't say in words. All the chaos seems to come under control for awhile until the pent up energy bursts forth in "tumbling, tumbling, tumbling" and gleefully ends "as we go tumbling in the hay."

New York Voices : A Cappella Arrangements

Review: The World War II classic, "I'll Be Seeing You", by Irving Kahal and Sammy Fain, evokes memories of the big band era, while staying in the a cappella realm. Rubato, mellow blends and dynamic shaping are keys to this Darmon Meader arrangement. It creates the melancholy feelings that are significant in time of war when loved ones are missed and longed for. A beautiful selection for the holidays and the New Year, as well as graduation. "Baby Driver" - Sheer, unbridled fun! For college or adult jazz chorus, this arrangement as sung by the New York Voices is a bit tricky, but well worth the effort. It features incredible harmony and rhythm and some a cappella sections, but the purpose of this piece is not to get technical-just to have fun! Four-part scat singing frames the piece on either end, while your baritone soloist goes to town (with great choral support) on each verse. Baby Driver, extracted from the New York Voices Songs of Paul Simon CD, is a toe-tappin', hand-clappin' jazz party. Invite everyone you know! The timeless Irish folk song "The Last Rose Of Summer" has been arranged by the renowned Darmon Meader of the group New York Voices. Simple unison and harmonies that respect the tune and lyric open then graduate to a more contemporary sound to add freshness without difficulty. A dream to teach and sing!

New York Voices : New York Voices Collection Vol 4

Review: 'Overs' is an introspective beauty full of angular voicings and a poignant lyric. Peter Eldrige's arrangement of this excellent Paul Simon tune offers much solo opportunity, or if preferred, the piece can be performed as a group feature. 'Me and Julio' is another great NYV arrangement of a Paul Simon classic. 'Soon One Day' features an unusual a cappella opening into the dramatic solo as recorded by Caprice Fox on the recent Hearts of Fire album. Alternating solo and chorus sections build to an interesting shout section with influences of Gospel and African music. Auxiliary percussion and vocal sounds add to the impact in this exciting arrangement. A beautiful opening for mezzo soloist begins 'Now That The Love Is Over,' a funk/rock arrangement by Darmon Meader. This chart will put a real "kick" into your jazz group.

Review: A tribute to the late Ella Fitzgerald, the fast swing arrangement, 'Oh, Lady Be Good,' is one no jazz ensemble should be without. It features improvisation solos, vocalese solos based on nursery rhymes, and one monster of a shout section! The ultimate closer for a concert program! 'Way of the World' is the title track for the New York Voices Hearts of Fire album. A funk/rock setting of the rock classic, this arrangement features exciting voicings that really allow the featured soprano solo to soar! The classic A. C. Jobim bossa nova, 'Desafinado,' arranged by Darmon Meader, features both male and female solos interspersed with lush vocal textures. Instrumental solo space is also built into the arrangement. Also, written by A. C. Jobim, lyrics by Kim Nazarian and arranged by Darmon Meader, 'Modinha' is a haunting a cappella piece. It starts with a female solo building to a rich 4-part texture and winds down to a moody finish. A great a cappella moment in any concert.

Ola Gjeilo : A Cappella Compositions

Review: The music of Manhattan-based Norwegian composer Ola Gjeilo (b. 1978) has been performed and recorded in more than 30 countries worldwide in venues such as New York's Carnegie Hall, Los Angeles' Disney Hall, Philadelphia's Kimmel Centeri, Washington DC's Kennedy Center and National Gallery, as well as the Copenhagen and Oslo Opera Houses. His music has been featured on PBS and radio stations across the US. "The Spheres" - This movement is the beginning of a Mass called Sunrise, and, according to its composer, it is to "be performed with the sense of floating in space." A fine challenge for accomplished high school choirs and beyond! The setting uses the Latin Kyrie Eleison text. "Phoenix" - Written for larger, mature choirs, Gjeilo uses the Latin "Agnus Dei" text as support for this symphonic-sounding choral work. With its beautiful color, intonation and phrasing, it is a great choice for advanced high school, college and beyond. "Northern Lights" - Set to the Latin "Pulchra es amica mea" text from Song of Solomon, this easy-to-prepare composition is a great selection for high school, church and community choirs. With music inspired by the aurora borealis atmospheric lights, this song will render a most impressive performance

Songlist: Tota Pulchura Es, Northern Lights, The Spheres, Phoenix

Oscar Escalada : Latin American Choral Series

Review: A wonderful collection of contemporary Latin American choral music selected by noted Argintian conductor and composer Oscar Escalada. "La Chaparrita " is a brisk Venezuelan folk melody and is fun to sing and includes the vocal imitation of a typical pattern played on a "cuarto". "Candomble", from Uruguay, is written in a rhythm very close to the tango and the habanera. "La Ninez De America" is based on a poem of Argentinian poet Alberto del Carril and is inspired by the Incas. "Cancion Con Todos " is a two-part song based on two different rhythms. The first part is calm and recognizes each area of the Americas with characteristic elements such as copper for Chile, sun for Peru etc. The second part is rhythmic and exultant with the hope of bringing all the peoples of Latin America to sing together!

Songlist: Cancion Con Todos, Se Equivoco La Paloma (The Dove Was Wrong), La Ninez De America, La Chaparrita , Candomble

Otto Olsson : Six Latin Hymns

Review: Noted Swedish composer Otto Olsson had an interest in early music and used the plainchant techniques of Gregorian chant in his Gregorianska melodier.

In addition to many fine choral works, his best-known work is his setting of the Te Deum, a large piece for chorus. Here are six hymns for mixed chorus.

Songlist: Psalm 120, The Canticle of Simeon, Psalm 110, Jesus, How Fair The Thought of You, Hail, Star of the Sea, O Glorious King of Martyr Hosts

Review: Palestrina first published his 29 five-part motets, to words from King Soloman's Song of Songs, in 1583-1584 in Rome. These are most rewarding and challenging pieces for ensembles looking to add to their repertoire.

Songlist: Osculetur me, Trahe me, Nigra sum, sed formosa, Vineam meam non custodivi, Si ignoras te, Pulchrae sunt genae tuae, Fasciculus myrrhae, Ecce tu pulcer es, Tota pulchra es, Vulnerasti cor meum, Sicut lilium inter spinas, Introduxit me rex, Laeva eius, Vox dilecti mei, Surge, propera amica mea, Surge, amica mea, Dilectus meus mihi, et ego illi, Surgam et circuibo civitatem, Adiuro vos, Capet eius, Dilectus meus descendit, Puchra es, amica mea, Qua est ista, Descendi in hortum nucum, Quam pulchri sunt, Duo ubera tua, Quam pulchra es, Guttur tuum, Veni, veni dilecte mi

Palestrina : Missa Papae Marcelli

Review: Missa Papae Marcelli, or Pope Marcellus Mass, is Palestrina's most well-known and most often-performed mass, and is frequently taught in university courses on music. The mass is freely composed, not based upon a cantus firmus or parody. It is a six-voice mass, though the use of the full forces is reserved for specific climactic portions in the text, and voice combinations are varied throughout the piece. It is set primarily in a homorhythmic, declamatory style, with little overlapping of text and a general preference for block chords such that the text, unlike many polyphonic masses of the 16th century, can clearly be heard in performance.

Songlist: Kyrie, Gloria, Gloria: Qui tollis, Credo, Credo: Crucifixus, Credo: Et in spiritum sanctum, Sanctus, Sanctus: Hosanna in excelsis, Sanctus: Benedictus, Agnus Dei I & II
