Russell Robinson : English Madrigals

A sumptuous edition of an the cappella standard "April Is In My Mistress' Face" from the madrigal repertoire by Thomas Morley. Available for 3-part mixed voices, Russell Robinson's new adaptation features flowing contrapuntal lines, appropriate vocal ranges, and tasteful editor's marks for a truly authentic performance. Enjoyable to sing, valuable to teach, and splendid to hear. "Fair Phyllis" is another well-edited arrangement by Russell Robinson from the madrigal repertoire. Sung a cappella, or with the piano, the men's part spans only six notes in an easy range for changing voices. Charming secular text, light polyphonic texture, changing meters, and contrasting dynamics. Fair Phyllis is perfect as a first madrigal or as a Renaissance feature on any program. "Sing We And Chant It" - Introduce your 3-part choir to madrigal singing with this wonderful new edition of the Thomas Morley classic designed especially for young singers by Russell Robinson. Reduced to three voice parts, this edition still sounds full and captures all the spirit and joy of madrigal singing. Suitable for large choirs as well as small groups. Add this work to your choral library and use it year after year. An excellent teaching piece...but perform it at concert and festival time, too.

Ohio State University Women's Glee : Here's To Song : 00  1 CD : Robert J. Ward : 7209

Ohio State University Women's Glee : Here's To Song

Founded in 1903, the OSU Women's Glee Club is one of the oldest and most respected women's Collegiate groups in America. These 19 songs start off nicely with a pair of a cappella tunes, the lovely "Alleluia" by William Boyce, and Jacques Arcadelt's joyous "Sing On this Festive Day," Bach's lightly accompanied "Dominus Deus," and three by Gwyneth Walker, "Mornings Innocent,"" "Love is a Rain of Diamonds" and "I will be earth." Thomas Morely's "Fire, fire my heart" and a pair of spirituals by Michael Neaum, "I got a robe" and "Didn't it rain" are also on our list of favorites. The Glee Club has a pure, harmonic soprano sound that's easy on the ears, and every cut on "Here's to Song" is a winner!

Songlist: Alleluia, Sing on this Festive Day, Come, Ye Makers of Song, Dominus Deus, How Merrily We Live, Psalm 100, Rise Up, My Love, Nigra Sum, The Snow, Mornings Innocent, Love is a Rain of Diamonds, I Will be Earth, Fire, Fire My Heart, Hotaru Koi (Ho, Firefly), Aunu, Aunu Balti Kajas, Song for the Mira, I Got A Robe, Didn't It Rain, Here's To Song
