Philip Ledger (editor) : Oxford Book of English Madrigals : Mixed 5-8 Parts : 01 Songbook : 9780193436640

Philip Ledger (editor) : Oxford Book of English Madrigals

The madrigal composed in England during the late sixteenth century and early seventeenth centuries include some of the finest music of the period and are possibly superior in truth and expressiveness even to the madrigals composed in Italy, where the form was invented and flourished over a long period. Faced with many hundreds of possible candidates for inclusion in the edition, the editor worked on the principal that the major composers would each be represented by several madrigals, and the lesser figures by one or more. But no madrigal would be included if it fell below the high standard set by the collection as a whole. Over 60 madrigals are included.

Songlist: Those Sweet Delightful Lilies, All Creatures Now, Weep O Mine Eyes, Lullaby My Sweet Little Baby, This Sweet and Merry Month of May, Though Amaryllis Dance, Come Gentle Swains, Poor is the Life, Quick Quick Away Dispatch!, No Haste But Good!, Fair Nymphs I Heard One Telling, Fair Phyllis I Saw, Consture my Meaning, Ah Dear Heart, Dainty Fine Bird, O that the Learned Poets, The Silver Swan, Trust Not to Much Fair Youth, What is our Life?, Come Away Sweet Love, See What a Maze of Terror, April is in my Mistress' Face, Fyer Fyer!, Hard by a Crystal Fountain, I Love Alas this Tormenting, My Bonnie Lass She Smileth, Now Is The Month Of Maying, Sing We and Chant it, Through Philomela Lost Her Love, Whither Away so Fast?, and more

Various Arrangers : Madrigals for SSA : SSA : Sheet Music

Various Arrangers : Madrigals for SSA

New for SSA! Russell Robinson has now adapted this widely performed madrigal "Sing We and Chant It" for treble choirs. It's superbly reduced to preserve the harmonic and melodic structure of the original 5-part work. The quintessential madrigal, it features dynamic variations, much repetition for quick learning, and an open score for easy reading. Russell Robinson has adapted "Fire, Fire", one of Thomas Morley's most enduring madrigals, for 3-part voices, just right for today's young and developing choirs. The male part has a limited, 5-note range...great for changing voices. The independent vocal lines make it an excellent learning piece and a perfect "first madrigal" for any choir. Carefully tailored to the needs of middle school and junior high singers. "All Ye Who Love Music" was given its English text by Thomas Oliphant in 1837. This arrangement has been lowered one step from the original key of G major to F major. The soprano (Part 1) melody is basically the same; however, Parts II and III have been arranged iin such a way as to limit the range and for ease of singing, while retaining the sound and flavor of the original. As will all Renaissance madrigals, this piece should be sung lightly and lyrically. This trio of fresh, new, madrigals from Jay Althouse is a valuable addition to the choral repertoire SSA choirs. The first is in a traditional madrigal style, with a "fa la la" section and features and echo chorus. The second is lush and lovely, homophonic in nature, with a thought-provoking text. The third is up-tempo and includes an optional hand drum: it could be used as a processional or at a madrigal dinner. Use any or all of the three for concerts, contests, and adjudications.

Songlist: Sing We and Chant It, Fire, Fire, All Ye Who Music Love, Come Celebrate this Festive Day, How Fair a Rose, All Ye, the Music Makers

Bradley Logan, who also directs the BSU Chamber Singers, a 14-voice ensemble chosen by audition from the Choir. On "Beneath" we hear 6 songs by the full choir, 8 by the Chamber Singers and then 7 more by the choir. Sacred music like Peter Phillips' "Surgens Jesus," Johann Michael Bach's "Sei, lieber Tag, wilkommen," "The Lamb" and "The Tiger" by Eric Barnum, "Come, Love We God," and "Hark, Hark What News the Angels Bring" coexist nicely with traditional and folk music like Edwin Fissinger's "Nelly Bly," "This Endris Night" and "Black is the Color of My True Love's Hair," Bob Chilcott's "The Gift to be Simple" and Jonathan Quick's "Loch Lomond." Sweet, beautiful music that touches the heart, sung with feeling by the wonderfully-led Bemidji Choir!

The Indiana University Children's Choir comprises six choirs for children from kindergarten through high school. All children can find a place in one of those choirs regardless of training.

There are 22 songs here, we particularly enjoyed four movements by Brahms, "Liebeslied No.'s 8, 10, 13 and 18," Cobb's "Cantate Domino," Sprenkle's "For a Dewdrop," the moody "Erev Shel Shoshanim," Hatfield's "La Lluvia" and "Fair Phyllis I Saw," the folk spinning song "Sarasponda," Morley's "Sing We and Chant It," Franck's "Da Pacem Domine," James Taylor's "That Lonesome Road," and the Wm.

Trapp Family Singers : One Voice : 00  2 CDs : 664

Trapp Family Singers : One Voice

When Mary Martin debuted in Rodgers and Hammerstein's hugely popular "The Sound of Music" in 1959, the play's subjects, the Von Trapp Family, had recently concluded their successful music career. Touring the world for 20 years, they brought a unique mixture of liturgical music, madrigals, folk music and instrumentals to audiences in over 30 countries. Loosely based on the life story of Captain Georg von Trapp, his second wife Maria, and his 7 children by his first wife, Agathe. The music of the play was quite different from the music performed by the Trapps in thousands of live performances, but fortunately they recorded hundreds of choral and instrumental works with RCA and Decca. One Voice is the first definitive compilation, a two-CD set of 36 songs apiece, of the choir's musical history, from 1935 to 1956. A few of our many favorites are German Folk songs "In Stiller Nacht," "Song of Parting," "Muss I'Denn" and "Jagerlied," Australian Folk song "Waltzing Matilda;" Maori Folk song "Pokare Kareana;" Austrian Folk songs "Der Gru" (The Cricket) and "Die Hoch Alma" (The Highest Mountains); Spanish Folk song "Pastores A Belen;" Christmas and religious tunes "Carol of the Drum," "Angels We Have Heard on High," Bach's "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring," Humperdinck's "Evening Prayer," Palestrina's "O Bone Jesu" and many, many others. A wonderfully sung collection that touches and entertains!

Songlist: Sing We And Chant It, In Stiller Nacht, Allemande And Sara Bande, Il Blanco E Dolce Cigno, Song Of Parting, Waltzing Matilda, Pokare Kare Ana, Kuckuck Hat Sich Zu Tod Gefalun, Innsbruck Ich Muss Dich Lassen, Every Year Brings Something New, The Farmer's Boy, In Einem Kuhlen Grunde, Muss I'Denn, Jagerlied, The Lone Prairie, Aneriskay Love Lit, Early One Morning, Der Gru, The Highest Mountains, Andreas Hofer's Abschied Von Leben, Easter Eggs, Que Lejos Estov, Chilectoto, J'entends Le Moulin, Peuer Natus Est Nobis, Pastores A Belen, Carol Of The Drum, Bring Your Torches Jeanette Isabella, The Christmas Rose, Angels We Have Heard On High, and more
