Stephen Hatfield : Treble Voice Fun! - Vol 1 : 3 Part Treble : Sheet Music : Stephen Hatfield : 02437

Stephen Hatfield : Treble Voice Fun! - Vol 1

Stephen Hatfield is noted for his exciting arrangements of world music, and for his original works which weave influences from diverse cultures into a fresh and distinctive idiom. His choirs have earned gold medals in national festivals, and he has received various awards for his work in education and music. With "For Elizabeth:.." Hatfield uses the old Italian technique of matching the vowels of her name to the corresponding sol-fa syllables to create an ostinato that metaphorically translates her into music. The piece combines poignancy with lots of sparkle, lots of interlocking ostinati. The mix of tenderness and energy has effected audiences strongly. "Glettur" is an Icelandic word that signifies a mischievous but ultimately good-hearted sense of humour. Launching itself from a snatch of an old fiddle jig, "Glettur" lives up to its name with crafty changes of style and key, and with ironic allusions to a couple of other famous pieces of music that have something to do with high spirit. With "Fashion Victim, Drama Queen" we have a slangy de profundis about trying to placate your peer group. The soli section acts as the Drama Queen, while the rest of the choir takes the part of the peer group, commenting on the outsider in a mixture of English and Tex-Mex Spanish slang. Each movement of Missa Brevis incorporates folk melodies from a different country. The moods and the tempi of the originals have been altered; melodies have been unraveled, spliced together and persuaded to modulate.

Songlist: For Elizabeth: Gold, Frank Innocence, and Mirth, Glettur, Fashion Victim, Drama Queen, Missa Brevis

Stephen Hatfield : Treble Voice Fun! - Vol 2 : SSA. : Sheet Music : Stephen Hatfield : 02437

Stephen Hatfield : Treble Voice Fun! - Vol 2

The title of "Ain't That News" is a tribute to the superb Staple Singers, who dang a piece by that name, not otherwise quoted in this chart. The opening seven measures are an adaptation of an old Paul Robeson 78. The rest of the piece is original material intended to pay homage to both the black church and black popo music, just one of the many genres that owes its soul to the spiritual. The composer states, "My goal is to allow even the most demure chorister to have at least a little taste of what it would be like to be Aretha Franklin." "One For Frost.." is a merging of modern diction with the ancient forms of counting song, nursery rhyme, round, or "catch," and the incantational folk songs that paid homage to the natural powers of this peculiar and beautiful world. Set to a beautiful old hymn tune from an 1855 collection, "When It Was Dark" offers much scope for phrasing and word painting as the singers recreate the setting from outside the tomb, and explore the psychology of one of the Bible's most famous and timeless characters, Mary Magdalene. "Chant for a Long Day" is inspired by two monophonic chants for women, the Mersiyet from Pakistan, and the "waulking songs" from the island of Barra in the Hebrides. The text is a depiction of perserverance and longevity, a life force out of the distant and unknowable past, balanced for a moment in the present, and then heading for a distand and unknowable future. The words evoke images of physical and spiritual survival common to many cultures, as well as the images of femininity and womanhood that are also shared by peoples from around the world.

Songlist: When It Was Dark, One For Frost, Two For Fire, Ain't That News , Let Me Ask You, Chant For A Long Day

Stephen Hatfield : Three Ways To Vacuum Your House

These original pieces incorporates a multiplicity of multicultural influences, from Peru to Scotland. The text is a sequence of nonsense syllables, imitating the humming and muttering one does during housework. The first movement explores various hemiola patterns culminating in vocalized drum patterns modeled on Arabic and Indian traditions. The second movement, whose slow groove is derived from Reggae, incorporates tonalities and scale structures from Brazil and Lebanon. The final movement starts in Peru, and works upward through Latin America only to discover a hitherto unexplored Mexican/Scottish border. Lots of fun to both teach and sing!

Songlist: Three Ways To Vacuum Your House - Part I, Three Ways To Vacuum Your House - Part II, Three Ways To Vacuum Your House - Part III

Stephen Hatfield : Folk Songs for 3 Part Treble : SSA. Treble : Sheet Music : Stephen Hatfield

Stephen Hatfield : Folk Songs for 3 Part Treble

The "Apple-Tree Wassail" comes from the cider country of Devon and Somerset, where it might be sung in the orchards or at the farmer's door. Wassail comes from the Anglo-Saxon wes hael - to be healthy. "The Green Shores of Fogo" bears marks of Irish provenance, although its musical origins were lost before Kenneth Peacock collected the song from Mrs. John Fogarty in 1952. The tune, which Peacock considered one of the most beautiful modal melodies he had ever heard, has attracted more than one set of lyrics, and is also known in Newfoundland as "The Blooming Bright Star of Belle Isle." Colcannon, made from various combinations of cabbage, kale, onions, scallions and potatoes mashed with butter and milk, is one of Ireland's most famous traditional dishes. Although this piece at first seems like a tribute to food, it's really a tribute to memory, and to times gone. The verses take us from the home, to the school, to courting on a country lane, with the narrator a little older in every verse, and a little more aware of the magic of the moment. "Girl of the Branches" emulates the long phrases and finely developed breath control that is a hallmark of Gaelic singing. Also included is the Jutland folk song "When The Star Falls".

Songlist: Girl of the Branches (Nighean nan Geug), When the Stars Fall, Colcannon, The Green Shores of Fogo, Apple-Tree Wassail

Stephen Hatfield : Folk Songs for 4 Part Treble

Battant Son Plein is French slang, literally "hitting his fill," the equivalent of the English "in full swing." Written for Scala, a children's choir from Bruxelles, the title refers to what these children sound like when they sing, and the piece is a salute to their confidence and daring. Duration: ca. 5:10. Nukapianguaq presents Inuit music in a choral setting that remains as faithful as possible to the aesthetics of the original tradition. "Rosebud in June" is drawn from the English tradition that brought blessings to crops and flocks, this Somerset melody is rousingly arranged for full chorus. Also included in this package is "Sida Rudaia," a traditional Ukranian song arranged by Stephen Hatfield 4-pt treble a cappella, and "Double Shot" as performed by Sweet Honey In The Rock.

Songlist: Nukapianguaq, Rosebud In June, Sida Rudaia, Battant Son Plein, Double Shot (Honey in the Rock)

Las Amarillas : SATB : Stephen Hatfield : Stephen Hatfield : Sheet Music : 48023907 : 888680642525

Stephen Hatfield : Las Amarillas

This is in the southern Mexican style of the Huapango. In this fast and fun music, with the flash of reds, yellows and greens and the flash in the rhythm, it's as if the entire landscape becomes the dancer's dress with a riot of color represented in the music.

Stephen Hatfield : Love Deliver Me

Written to be a reflection on the power of love, the composer has constructed a semi-gospel anthem with a slow groove that allows each singer to find meaning in the word love for their own lives. The original text lifts up the joy, heartbreak, uncertainty and eternal love that we all experience along the way. Deep and powerful emotions will inform the musical performance. Duration: ca. 3 minutes.

Hauntingly beautiful, this is the story of a young girl exiled to a remote island by a hard-hearted uncle. The story of love and loss that unfolds is second only to the lush harmonies of the vocal lines.

Nukapianguaq : SSAA : Stephen Hatfield : Sheet Music : 48004460 : 073999691689

Stephen Hatfield : Nukapianguaq

Nukapianguaq (pronounced Nuhk-ah-pee-ang-guaq) attempts to present Inuit music in a choral setting that remains as faithful as possible to the aesthetics of the original tradition. Inuit chants are usually reflective in nature and spiritual in intent. They frequently aim at a kind of inner awareness and harmony with life that is comparable to the liturgical music of India and Tibet. A marked exception is the war chant which finishes the piece, which should end in a suitable frenzy. The chants included here do not have lyrics. The syllables used on the field recordings on which this piece is based have been identified by an Inuit teacher as a kind of 'scat'. Often the singer will improvise with verbal sounds that rhyme with the name of the child who is being sung to sleep, or the name of the person the singer wishes to honor.
