Russell Robinson : I Know Sousa, Not Sopranos!

Here's a sobering thought for many a band or orchestra director: you've been given the "opportunity" to work with a choir! Whether or not the decision was made by you or for you, moving from the realm of Sousa or Tchaikovsky to the land of sopranos can be a disconcerting prospect for even the most experienced (not to mention even-keeled) band or orchestra director. But fear not-trained instrumentalist turned choral director (and educator, clinician, composer, and arranger) Russ Robinson, has written I Know Sousa, Not Sopranos! to help you survive your foray into this strange land. Drawn from his very successful clinics on this subject, Dr. Robinson's goals with this guide are simple-to show those educators who have been trained in instrumental music that they already possess many of the musical skills necessary to teach choral music, and to present, in a straightforward and accessible manner, knowledge and awareness of key areas unique to directing a choir.

Russell Robinson : Renaissance Chorals for Mixed Voices : SATB : Sheet Music Collection : Russell L. Robinson

Russell Robinson : Renaissance Chorals for Mixed Voices

Some choral classics from the Renaissance period. First published in 1603, the quintessential John Dowland madrigal "Weep You No More Sad Fountains" has been newly edited by Russell Robinson. SATB and 3-part mixed choirs will enjoy the lush texture and rich harmonic structure, which exemplifies music of the Renaissance era, and appreciate the high quality of Dr. Robinson's tidy edition. Solid choral repertoire. Long a standard in the choral repertoire, Palestrina's "Adoramus Te" continues to be a favorite for contest or festival. Range is excellent for the SATB junior high choir. Sixteenth century Italian composer Adriano Banchieri must have had quite the sense of humor. The classic light-hearted concert work "Counterpoint Of The Animals" has been a staple in choral repertoire for decades. Now Russell Robinson brings us a new setting that will add a touch of classy fun to any serious concert. Glorious polyphony soars in this edition of Victoria's "O Magnum Mysterium". Long melismas and fugal entrances are part of the beauty of this great Renaissance work. For contest, festival or concert use.

Songlist: Two Renaissance Chorals (Adoramus Te / Ave Maria), O Magnum Mysterium, Fa Una Canzona, Counterpoint of the Animals, Weep You No More, Sad Fountains, Adoramus Te

Russell Robinson : Arrangements for 3 Parts

Sixteenth century Italian composer Adriano Banchieri must have had quite the sense of humor. The classic light-hearted concert work "Counterpoint Of The Animals" has been a staple in choral repertoire for decades. Now Russell Robinson brings us a new setting that will add a touch of classy fun to any serious concert. "All Ye Who Love Music" was given its English text by Thomas Oliphant in 1837. This arrangement has been lowered one step from the original key of G major to F major. The soprano (Part 1) melody is basically the same; however, Parts II and III have been arranged iin such a way as to limit the range and for ease of singing, while retaining the sound and flavor of the original. As will all Renaissance madrigals, this piece should be sung lightly and lyrically. The three-part original "A Song Of Peace And Harmony" imparts a message of peace and harmony in an easy-to-sing yet highly musical choral work. With a relevant message for today, this lighter concert piece is especially programmable. The well-known song "Psallite" by Praetorius from the German Renaissance period has long been a part of our choral repertoire. Russell Robinson has created an easy-to-sing SATB setting as well as a three-part men's edition. A perfect way to present standard choral repertoire to your developing choirs.

A great fit for choirs of any age or ability! Harry Belafonte sang this joyful West Indies song on his 1956 album Calypso.
