Alexander L'Estrange : Danny Boy and Other Classic Irish Melodies : SAB : Songbook : 9780571521906 : 12-0571521908

Alexander L'Estrange : Danny Boy and Other Classic Irish Melodies

The Irish have long been famed for their powerful traditional melodies, and three in this volume are surely amongst the finest. 'Danny Boy' (the melody of which is also known as 'Londonderry Air') was first published, without a title, in 1855. The words most commonly associated with it were written by an Englishman who apparently never set foot in Ireland! 'The lark in the clear air' is an exquisite song celebrating the beauty of nature. The poignant words of 'The last rose of summer' match the song's mournful, drooping melody.

Carsten Gerlitz : The Celtic Choirbook

Celtic music is enjoying a well-deserved revival. This revival may have been inspired by historical Hollywood epics, by popular dance acts such as "Riverdance", by Michael Flatley or purely by the emotional power of Celtic melodies. The songs all tell stories that have been passed down through successive generations, with more facets than any other kind of traditional music: some are melancholy dirges, some playful and lively dance tunes. This book brings together 20 of these traditional melodies in contemporary, modern arrangements for mixed chorus. In them you will find homophonic movements, sweeping melodic lines, vocal imitations of Celtic instruments and rousing rhythms. The irresistible charm of this music will leave no choral singer unmoved and is bound to find favour with audiences.

Songlist: Londonderry Air, Auld Lang Syne, Amazing Grace, Early One Morning, Lullaby, Dacw "Nghariad I Lawr Yn Y Berllan, Carrickfergus, Down By The Sally Gardens, Will Ye Go, Lassie, Go?, Whiskey In The Jar, An Irish Blessing, Riverdance, All Through The Night, Gin A Body, Believe Me, Scarbourough Fair, Greensleeves, The First Noel, Botany Bay, The Wild Rover

Canntaireachd : SATB : Paul Ely Smith : Paul Ely Smith : Chanticleer : Sheet Music : 00466834 : 196288070627

Paul Ely Smith : Canntaireachd

First made popular in performances by the famous choral ensemble, Chanticleer, the composer has revoiced it for SATB choir. The music is original although its connection to Irish Celtic music is undeniable, and quite intentional. The words have no meaning but continue the essence of the folk song idiom it is celebrating. It is a joyful concert piece with a challenging title to pronounce.

Celtic Mass : SATB : Dale Jergenson : Dale Jergenson : Sheet Music : CH-1266

Dale Jergenson : Celtic Mass

The Children's Choir of St. Cyril's, directed by Ms Susan Mills, offered a unique opportnity for the writing of a Mass for Full Choir, Children's Choir and instuments. The Irish Harp (also known as the Celtic Harp) was chosen as the sole accompaniment because of the lovely, soft sound of the strings, as opposed to the more bright sound of a standard harp. Two instruments are used because of the lack of tuning pedals on the Irish Harp and the need for an enlarged tonal pallet from that of a single Harp. It was also an opportunity to write a part for Boy Soprano - such a lovely sound when combined with the Celtic Harp.

Colcannon : SSA : Stephen Hatfield : Sheet Music : 48005082 : 073999753691

Stephen Hatfield : Colcannon

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 oCanadaf the magic of the moment.

Danny Boy : TTBB : Jameson Marvin : Sheet Music : 35005085 : 747510050612

Jameson Marvin : Danny Boy

Arranged for the Harvard Glee Club, the beautiful Danny Boy is harmonized in a highly compelling manner. Several verses include exquisite polyphonic writing for TTBB choir, which suddenly resolve into a floating, almost ethereal unison. The tenor solo is not at all difficult. Danny Boy is probably one of the most famous and well-loved melodies of all time. It is a wonderful concert piece, challenging and most rewarding.

Danny Boy : SAB : Alexander L'Estrange : Sheet Music : 12-0571537855 : 9780571537853

Alexander L'Estrange : Danny Boy

The history of perhaps the most famous Irish folksong Danny Boy (the melody of which is also known as Londonderry Air), is steeped in mystery. It was first published, without a title, in Dublin in 1855 and was apparently collected by a Miss Jane Ross, who claimed to have taken it down from the playing of an itinerant piper. However, although it is often assumed to be an old, traditional tune, its structure and meter do not fit any of the known Irish folksong forms. The words most commonly associated with it for the last hundred years or so, "Danny Boy," were written by an English lawyer who apparently never set foot in Ireland! Faber Choral Singles offer a series of beautifully crafted arrangements in a diversity of musical styles for today's choirs. From Broadway, pop and folk to spirituals, gospel and original works, the Faber Choral Singles series guarantees the perfect repertoire for every occasion.
