Winter Lullabies by Howard Goodall is a beautiful cycle of six loosely interwoven movements of various languages (English, Gaelic, German, Spanish) arranged for solo harp/piano and upper voices.

Howard Goodall : Every purpose under the heaven: The King James Bible Oratorio : SATB : Songbook : 56-0003

Howard Goodall : Every purpose under the heaven: The King James Bible Oratorio

Every purpose under the heaven, arranged for an accompanied mixed voices choir with soprano and tenor solos, is a musical tribute to one of the most important cultural landmarks of  Western civilization - the 1611 King James Bible. Written in celebration of the Bible's 400-year anniversary, Goodall has brought together ten of the most expressive passages, from Genesis to Revelation, to create an oratorio that is at once steeped in historic grandeur and utterly relevant in today's society. Musically, it displays all the hallmarks of Goodall's well-loved style - soaring melodies, rhythmic vitality and perfectly crafted lines. However, this work offers singers and audiences something more: an opportunity to introduce new generations to the expressive power and ancient truths of this historic text.

Songlist: In the beginning, There is a season, I will lift up mine eyes, Thee and me, Fulfilled in one word, I was a stranger, Blessed, Nover faileth, The light of the world, A new heaven, a new earth

These universal messages are brought to life with the emotional clarity and sweeping force of any Howard Goodall score.

Howard Goodall : Eternal Light: A Requiem : SATB : Songbook : 56-0002

Howard Goodall : Eternal Light: A Requiem

Eternal Light: A Requiem is arranged for an accompanied mixed voices choir with soprano, tenor and baritone solo options. It is by the award-winning British composer and internationally acclaimed broadcaster, Howard Goodall, and is a stunning new Requiem for the modern day. It is intended to provide solace to the grieving, reflecting on the words of the Latin Mass by juxtaposinjg them with poems in English. Speaking about the work, Howard Goodall said, "For me, a modern Requiem is one that acknowledges the unbearable loss and emptiness that accompanies the death of loved ones, a loss that is not easily ameliorated with platitudes about the joy awaiting us in the afterlife. This, like Brahms', is a Requiem for the living, addressing their suffering and endurance, a Requiem focusing on the consequences of interrupted lives."

Goodall's fresh and unorthodox interpretation of the Requiem Mass was released on EMI Classics, performed by Christ Church Cathedral Choir, Oxford and London Musici conducted by Stephen Darlington with soloists Natasha Marsh, Alfie Boe and Christopher Maltman. Duration: 40:00

Instrumentation: 2 Keyboards, Strings, opt. Harp

Contents:
1. Requiem: Kyrie: Close now thine eyes

A Song of Hope  : SSAA divisi : Howard Goodall : Howard Goodall : Songbook : 56-0020

Howard Goodall : A Song of Hope

For SSAA voices with a soloist (to which voices add gradually,) the text is as if someone is speaking to their long-dead ancestors. They granted a gift of life and hope for those who came after. Their "names and faiths survive." And just as those in the past were faced with decisions and made them for the benefit of those who follow, we now have the same responsibility. The music is mostly in unison and remains on one staff even when it divides into multiple parts (which it does in only 14 of the 89 measures). This is a singable piece with an easy but supportive piano part, which could be useful for many ensembles in many situations.

Howard Goodall : Open thou mine eyes

Selected verses of Psalm 119 are set for SSATB voices and organ. Unexpectedly, the music is rhythmic and angular, yet still lyrical. This piece would be a memorable one for any accomplished ensemble. The organ part is a non-stop tour de force and requires a very capable player. The choral parts are also a bit challenging in spots. The combined effect is worth it and we think your choir and your listeners will acclaim the results.

Howard Goodall : Psalm 102: pellicano solitudinis (Pelican In The Wilderness) (Choral Score)

This seven-minute SATB setting of a section of the 1640 text from the Bay Psalm Book takes wing like the birds it first mentions. What would normally be a somber litany of affliction is set to music that hints at eternal things and the saving power of God. The middle section "I said, 'In the middle of my days, O my God, do not take away me" is set, amazingly, in Latin, which gives a wonderful contrast to the more lyrical beginning. The beginning material returns as the Latin text is now sung in English, concluding "Thy years throughout all ages are." This music is sublime and transcendent.

The Pearl (Choral Score) : SSA : Howard Goodall : Howard Goodall : Sheet Music : 56-0040

Howard Goodall : The Pearl (Choral Score)

This George Herbert text is set for SSA voices and piano. The text is a veiled description of Herbert's relationship to God as paramount and beyond price. The pearl is a symbol for something sought but not easily found. The poet describes key pursuits in life (learning, honor, pleasure) and concludes "Yet I love thee." Again and again the comparison is made between earthly and heavenly things, and the author concludes that the ultimate goal is "to climbe to thee." There are various solo and small group opportunities marked in the music as well as "tutti choirs" and "massed voices." Yet the music is not complex and is suitable for a variety of situations and ensembles.

They Were Not Here : SATB : Howard Goodall : Howard Goodall : Sheet Music : 56-0042

Howard Goodall : They Were Not Here

Commissioned by The Voices Foundation in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the ending of World War II, this most somber and dramatic piece uses texts from David Geraint Jones and William Shakespeare to chronicle the recollections and reflections of a soldier, which are not for the faint of heart. Thinking back on a more carefree past, the "speaker" assures his love that the future will again hold quiet and wonder. However, the price to be paid in between the past and the future is in blood and death. The soldier predicts poppies swaying over him as he lies freed of pain, yes, but also of passion. And he concludes, "Your peace is bought with mine, if but the echo of your laughter reaches me in hell."

Wide World : SSAA : Howard Goodall : Howard Goodall : Sheet Music : 56-0043

Howard Goodall : Wide World

"Wide World" was commissioned by Sing Up and The Sage Gateshead for 'VoiceOver: Through Time and Space'. The music has a breathless excitement which matches the text, which centers around what the future holds and the idea that one can be whatever one decides to be. Younger singers could use this as a graduation piece, but it is suitable for many circumstances and ages. While technically SSAA, much of it is in two parts, with occasional divisi on each staff.
