There Is No Rose

Music by Benjamin Britten




There Is No Rose

There Is No Rose

Guy Forbes gave us O Nata Lux many years ago and we have patiently waited for its sequel. Now we have it, a stunning setting of There Is No Rose that delivers exactly what we hoped for. It is a beautiful melody draped in warm harmonic fabric that is so very rich and satisfying. For advanced high school, college and community choirs as well as fine church choirs. Medium to Difficult.

Various Arrangers : Medieval Songs for Upper Voices

Our fascination with the music of the medieval era continues to grow and grow. This collection with contemporary notation and helpful performance options offers the modern choir an opportunity to celebrate the music of the past. "If Ye Love Me" is one of the most recognized anthems from the English Renaissance, in a new adaptation specifically geared to the limits of younger voices and middle school choirs. Intimate and expressive, this would work well in both concert and worship settings, and provides a great way to introduce young singers to historical choral works. "Domine Fili Unigenite" features canonic imitation, vocal ostinati, and delicately intertwining melodies, this a cappella setting is stunning. "Gloria Patri" has powerful antiphonal effect provides a dramatic vehicle for the English or Latin text! An appealing Renaissance work for both your mixed and treble ensembles! "Exultate Justi" is the famous Psalm 33 motet by Lodovico Grossi da Viadana adapted for younger ensembles. This composition is written in the typical Renaissance style of motets (a cappella sacred works) and madrigals (a cappella secular works). "Celebrate This Day Together" - energetic and rhythmic 16th-century piece is an excellent introduction to the music of the Renaissance. Includes secular or Christmas lyrics and optional hand drum.

Songlist: Domine Fili Unigenite, Exultate Justi, Gaudete Christus est natus, Celebrate This Day Together, There is no rose, Alleluia
