Timothy Mount

Timothy Mount is Professor and Director of Choral Music at Stony Brook University where he teaches masters and doctoral students in conducting and was the first recipient of the Bentley Glass Great Teacher Award. He has recorded six CD's with the all-professional Vedantic Arts Ensemble in New York - a choral group which performs with a full sound, good intonation, sensitive musicianship, and good diction. Two of these recordings were aired on the popular radio show, The First Art.

For over 10 years, he conducted the professional chorus and orchestra at the San Luis Obispo Mozart Festival. He has guest conducted the Choral Society of the Hamptons, the New York Virtuoso Singers, the Rhode Island Civic Chorale and Orchestra, and the Mendelssohn Club of Philadelphia. He has conducted most of the major choral works, including a recent performance of Britten's War Requiem with the Blacksburg Master Chorale and choirs from Virginia Tech and Roanoke College.

Mount has conducted three recordings in Moscow of large choral works by New York composer, John Schlenck. The first of these, with the Russian State Symphony Cinema Orchestra, was recently released on Albany Records and the other (Moscow State Radio and Television Orchestra) on the Composer's Recording Society label. All 3 recordings were with the professional Moscow New Choir.

Stony Brook University choirs under his direction have sung, by invitation, at the Utrecht Early Music Festival and festivals in Taiwan, Seoul, Quebec, Torrevieja and Cantonigros (Spain), and San Juan (Argentina). The Camerata Singers released their first professional CD on Koch Classics International in 2004 and were hailed by Fanfare magazine as "performances on a very high level precise, musical, and always in tune." Dr. Mount has conducted numerous high school honor choirs and church music festivals and has served as clinician in the U.S. and abroad. He has published articles concerning choral music and his video, Refine Your Conducting Technique , is distributed by Santa Barbara Music Publishing ("...a superb contribution to the profession..." The Choral Journal).

Camerata Singers : Copland - Works for Chorus

Review: Aaron Copland is best remembered for creating a truly American style of music which is full of folk influences, and melodic and harmonic simplicity. The Old American Songs incorporate folk melodies ranging from minstrel songs (The Boatmen's Dance) to hymns (Simple Gifts) to political satire (The Dodger). Originating as songs for voice and piano, these arrangements by Irving Fine for chorus were authorized by the composer, who himself further expanded the songs for voice and orchestra. "The House on the Hill" and "An Immortality" were both arranged by the recently departed Daniel Pinkham, who was a student of Copland's at Harvard.

Songlist: The Boatmen's Dance, The Dodger, Long Time Ago, Simple Gifts, I Bought Me a Cat, Help Us O Lord, Thou O Jehovah Abideth Forever, Have Mercy On Us, Sing Ye Praises To Our King, The Little Horses, Zion's Walls, The Golden Willow Tree, At the River, Ching-a-Ring Chaw, An Immortality, Las Agachadas, The House on the Hill, The Lark

Camerata Singers : Works of Randall Thompson and Libby Larsen : 00  1 CD : Timothy Mount : Randall Thompson Libby Larsen : 7560

Camerata Singers : Works of Randall Thompson and Libby Larsen

Review: The Stony Brook (NY) Camerata Singers have sung at prestigious music festivals such as the Utrecht Early Music Festival and the San Luis Obispo Mozart Festival in California. Their 30 mixed voices represent a cross-section of Stony Brook University, and they sing music from all periods, early to modern. While the major works of Randall Thompson (1899-1984) and Libby Larsen (b. 1950) are well-known, this CD offers a unique opportunity to hear some of their smaller works for unaccompanied chorus, and to compare these two American composers separated by half a century. 16 songs: first Thompson's "Antiphon" (1970), then 7 movements of "Mass of the Holy Spirit" (1955), followed by three striking "Sweet and Sour Nursery Rhymes" by Larsen, "There Was a Little Girl", "Little Boy Blue" and "Try, Try Again" (all 3 accompanied by French Horn). Then two by Thompson, "Glory to God in the Highest" (1958) and "Fare Well" (1973) are followed by the complex, dissonant "Bind Me, I Can Still Sing" and "Adrift! A Little Boat Adrift!" by Larsen, and the final cut is Thompson's "The Lark in the Morn" (1938). An interesting contrast of two composers, both brilliant, each with a totally different focus.

Songlist: Mass of the Holy Spirit:, Kyrie, Gloria, Credo, Sanctus, Benedictus, Hosanna, Agnus Dei , Sweet and Sour Nursery Rhymes:, There Was A Little Girl, Little Boy Blue, Try, Try Again, Glory to God in the Highest, Fare Well, Bind Me, Adrift! A Little Boat Adrift!, The lark in the Morn
