Otto Olsson : Six Latin Hymns : SATB : 01 Songbook : 073999154047 : WH120

Otto Olsson : Six Latin Hymns

Noted Swedish composer Otto Olsson had an interest in early music and used the plainchant techniques of Gregorian chant in his Gregorianska melodier. He explored polytonality in his work, an advancement not found in other Swedish works of the time. In addition to many fine choral works, his best-known work is his setting of the Te Deum, a large piece for chorus. Here are six hymns for mixed chorus.

Songlist: Psalm 120, The Canticle of Simeon, Psalm 110, Jesus, How Fair The Thought of You, Hail, Star of the Sea, O Glorious King of Martyr Hosts

Real Group : Arrangements of The Real Group Vol 4 : SATB divisi : Sheet Music

Real Group : Arrangements of The Real Group Vol 4

"There Will Never Be Another You " is a sensitive treatment of the jazz standard that opens as a ballad before moving to a buoyant swing feel. Great tune, great arrangement. SATB a cappella with soprano solo. "Come Sunday" - Careful voice leading makes the contemporary harmonic changes and chord voicings in this chart quite accessible in this SSATBB a cappella arrangement. It features a strong 5 and 6 part into featuring the first chorus with a pyramid background behind a soprano melody moving into spread harmonies. The second chorus is open for a improvised solo with a tag over a 3-part harmonized background with walking bass. The chart ends with a 6-way harmonized "quasi-shout" chorus moving back into the origianl melody. Stevie Wonder's "Sir Duke" never had it so good in this marvelous Edenroth arrangement.

Songlist: There Will Never Be Another You , Come Sunday, Sir Duke, Very Early

Two Swedish Carols : SATB : Lee Kesselman : Sheet Music : 48004776 : 073999425765

Lee Kesselman : Two Swedish Carols

These two popular Swedish Christmas Carols, Nu Ar Detv Jul Igen and Nar Juldagsmorgon Glimmar, capture complementary aspects of the Christmas spirit. Nu Ar Detv Jul Igen is in the style of the Hambo, one of the most popular of Swedish folk dances. At Christmas time, the Hambo is danced around the Yule tree by children gaily singing these playful verses. Nar Juldagsmorgon Glimmar is a more expressive carol, filled with the magic of Jesus' birth in the humble manger. Throughout the arrangement, the dance carol should be sung lightly and accented, with a dancing buoyancy. Nar Juldagsmorgon Glimmar should be sung legato with expressive lines and should never be covered by the quicker carol.
