Alphabet (Fuga) : SSA : David Del Tredici : David Del Tredici : Sheet Music : 48005106 : 073999267716

David Del Tredici : Alphabet (Fuga)

David Del Tredici writes: "My setting of the 1727 New England Primer's Alphabet might horrify its Puritan author by transforming its simple text into an exuberant tour de force. Its 26 couplets tumble upon one another in tight three-part counterpoint, testing the young performers' range and endurance alike."

Highlands, Farewell (Aria) : SSAA : David Del Tredici : David Del Tredici : Sheet Music : 48005107 : 073999051070

David Del Tredici : Highlands, Farewell (Aria)

from Del Tredici's program notes: The sense of moment is emphasized by augmenting the choral forces with a soprano soloist and pianist, who open the work with an extended aria. The ensuing choral commentary and soprano cadenza lead to a repetition and climactic development of the aria theme, now shared by chorus, soloist and piano equally. ... Here, the enging is a triumphant C-major chord, capped by a high C for all the sopranos.

The Little Land : SAB : Francisco J. Nunez : Sheet Music : 48005105 : 073999183917

Francisco J. Nunez : The Little Land

From Del Tredici's Program notes: "In this traumatic post-9/11 world, I felt an urge to connect with, and even comfort, the youngest generation of budding musicians. Heart and felt are two words that directed my choice of texts: I wanted to tell something about myself, as well as about the joys of childhood ... Stevenson's "The Little Land" re-creates the imaginitive world that to daydreaming children seems so natural."
