Choral Arrangements from North America

Although a relatively young country as far as choral traditions go North America soon established it's own folk songs influenced not only by Europe but also from African slave songs and spirituals. There has of course also been a singing tradition in indigenous populations and we included several excellent examples here.

Craig McLeish : The Negro Speaks of Rivers : SATB : 01 Songbook : 884088996130 : 1780387938 : 14042196

Craig McLeish : The Negro Speaks of Rivers

Craig McLeish writes of The Negro Speaks of Rivers; Langston Hughes (1902-1967) was the first black American to earn his living from writing. He was an innovator of jazz poetry, becoming part of the Harlem Renaissance in the 1920s and 1930s. He wrote plays, short stories, novels, and his poetry was widely read. He was also a journalist, columnist and lecturer. The Negro Speaks of Rivers was perhaps his earliest published work, written when only 17 and while travelling by train to Mexico to visit his father. As the train crossed the Mississippi he suddenly began thinking about how rivers had impacted on Negro history, particularly in the fight against slavery. The four rivers mentioned in the poem lent themselves to using musical influences from those particular regions.

Songlist: I've Known Rivers, The Congo, The Euphrates, The Mississippi, The Nile

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.

Various Arrangers : Prairie Songs

Edwin Fissinger's music has a distinctly American sound, and his choral set "Dakota Prairies" uses poems that describe some of our north central states' most beautiful scenery. "The Wild Prairie Rose" uses a poem by Alice Sinclair Page. The madrigal-style writing is excellent for choirs of all sizes, from festival to chamber groups. "The Wind in the Wheat" is based on a poem by Jessamine Slaughter Burgum. One can almost smell the air of the northern plains through the poetry and music of this classic Fissinger selection, published here for the first time. "The Prairie" captures the essence of America's great open spaces in a text by Anne Murry Marius. "Night on the Prairies", a Walt Whitman setting, returns us to our American heritage roots and the thoughts and feelings the prairie invites. "Sing As The Prairie" was written by John Neihardt, who was revered by Nebraskans as their poet laureate. Because his love of nature is evident in each phrase, the music incorporates the enchanting sounds of nature and the prairie. Arrangement by Mary Goetz.

"Poor Lonesome Cowboy" is an original arrangement by Norman Luboff of this famous cowboy's lament. "All The Pretty Little Horses" is a traditional Southeastern American folksong featuring canonic imitation, vocal ostinati, and delicately intertwining melodies, this a cappella setting is stunning. "Sacramento - Sis Joe" is a wiry, spiky combination of two American folk songs; one very well-known; one somewhat obscure. The better known is Stephen Foster's "Camptown Races" but it's appearance here, however, is with a completely different text that captures the excitement of a mid-1800's trip to California in search of gold! "Sis Joe" is a traditional railroad song that was used by Aaron Copland in "Rodeo".

"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. "On The Rooms" - An audience need not be familiar with the history of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada's easternmost province, to get the sense that an epic story is unfolding before them. Based on the maritime heritage of Newfoundland and Labrador, this modern folk song creates an atmosphere of sea air and hard work. The arrangement of this beautiful Indian song "Land of the Silver Birch" was made by the Finnish music educator Pentti Paalanen in the 1970s for his high school choir in the town of Joensuu. Since all three verses are set to the same music, the necessary contrasts must come from a careful consideration of the text. These contrasts, or variations, need not be very great, however, as a certain monotony and mystery belongs to the character of this song. This Canadian Folksong "Petty Harbour Bait Skiff" describes the tragic sinking of a Bait Skiff near Petty Harbour in 1852, losing all but one of the crew.

Kathleen McGuire has created an outstanding arrangement of the glorious song "Harriet Tubman", originally penned by Walter Robinson, about the famous leader of the famous Underground Railroad. A cappella vocals that build with a "come on up" followed by rhythmic vocals under the hypnotic melody. Optional cabaca part suggested. Layered under that is the sound of percussion imitating a train and vocal nuances resembling the sound of chains and also a train whistle. Incredibly powerful and moving! It's a must for every choir's library. Eric Lane Barnes has a very unique writing style and he has done it again with the choral, Glee! This creative a cappella gem is quite entertaining, hearkening back to the days of the glee club songs of Yale and Harvard. This work is an excellent tool to teach harmonics. Listen to the middle section that contains a sequence of ascending diminished 7th chords with lyrics announcing the definition of the word, "glee." Novel, yet eloquent in its style and performance possibilities, Glee is "gleefully" a winner for any program. There is an early American feel to "Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing" that coordinates wonderfully with the text and adds a sense of authenticity to the whole. This treatment is a welcome addition to other versions of this piece because of its unique approach. Use during Pentecost or for general use. For harvest time, consider this medley of Thanksgiving favorites arranged by Chuck Bridwell. Contrasting sections include We Gather Together set to the tune Ash Grove, a fresh harmonization of Now Thank We All Our God sung a cappella, and a lovely arrangement of Handel's Thanks Be to Thee. Gracious and festive, Songs of Thanksgiving is the perfect adoration medley for the season of gratitude. The sturdy American folksong "Meeting Is Over" has been given new life through the skillful arranging of James Clemens. Maintaining the hollow, open harmonies and steady rhythmic movement of Early American music, Clemens adds some fresh counterpoints and syncopations to really liven things up. Meeting Is Over is dynamic!

The a cappella arrangement of 'Home on the Range' bursts with colorful harmonies and textures which expertly interpret the text. Described by some as a "perfect melody," this American standard gives your ensemble a chance to show off their impeccable tuning and blending abilities for concert, contest, or festival. 'Battle Hymn of the Republic' captures the triumphant sound of the original tune with great drum-like sounds coming from the men and the beautiful melody and harmony coming from the womens' voices. The legato feel and beautiful harmonies in 'My Old Kentucky Home' are breathtaking. This is a great tribute to Stephen Foster's original tune. The old southern tune 'Poor Wayfarin' Stranger' is simple but elegant. The unison sections add great contrast to the sections with more vocal harmony. John Biggs' 'Auction Cries' is a hillarious interpretation of text taken from auction advertisements in the Emporia Gazette (Kansas). This is a fast tune, with each voice part doing something totally different from the other. A great encore piece!

Various Arrangers : American Folk Songs Vol 2

This excellent collection of songs is sure to add some wonderful breadth to your choir's folk music repertoire. 'Bagels & Biscuits' is an exciting piece that should be performed with fun, laughter, and abondon; it includes a solo in the middle of the song that can be sung by either a tenor or soprano. Stephen Foster wrote 'Camptown Races' for a minstrel show around 1850, subtitling it 'Gwine to Run All Night' and composing the text in a minstrel-show dialect. This standard english version, by Melinda Bargreen, pays great tribute to the original. 'The Cuckoo' is a simple mountain ballad and should be sung in a flowing, legato style. The pianisimos in measures 10 and 25 are to remind singers not to "pounce" on the melodic leaps, but rather to maintain the quiet reflective mood of the song. Inspired by stories of Sudanese basket weavers, 'Famine Song' exprresses the pain and hope experienced by those in the famine of the 1980s. In the midst of hardship, a wonderful new sense of creativity emerged when women began weaving baskets as a means of survival. Central to the song is a section of improvisation over shifting chors - VIDA's (the folk vocal group who wrote this piece) recorded improvisation is written as a guide on the top of the staves. VIDA saw the two improvising voices as the voices of women from other cultures raised in empathy.
