(1949) Soprano and Tenor Solos, SATB, and Organ. SATB. for SATB with soprano and tenor soloists and organ Text: Ronald Duncan Publisher: Boosey & Hawkes Difficulty level: 3-4 This anthem, which is really more like a mini cantata than an anthem, was written for the marriage of the Earl of Harewood and Marion Stein. It took place in St. Mark's, North Audley Street, London, the church for which Britten had written his C major Te Deum and Eb Jubilate. The original soloists were Joan Cross and Peter Pears and Britten conducted. The difficulty with this work is that it really requires two professional soloists to do it justice. The choir begins the anthem and Britten uses the Ave Maria which Duncan places at the beginning and end of the first verse like a peal of bells. It is wonderfully effective. It is also used as a refrain. The second section (verse) is marked 'Recitative' and is for soprano solo. The early freedom implied by that term gives way to an Andante comodo and the soloist sings a beautiful lyrical setting of Duncan's imaginative words. The choir returns with a piano version of the 'Ave Maria' as a refrain and the tenor soloist takes over for verse three. Britten's flowing organ accompaniment takes its cue from the opening words here: 'As mountain streams find one another Till they are both merged there in a broad, peaceful river...' This is another extended and lovely solo for the tenor. In verse four, the choir rejoins for a brief refrain using the opening words of the anthem, and the soloists now sing a lively, playful duet. The ending for everyone is a quietly ravishing 'Amen'. This is another work of Britten's which is almost never performed. The choral parts are not difficult and the organ part is less challenging than some of Britten's other choral/organ works. Only the solo parts would seem to represent a barrier to a regular performance profile for the anthem. These are not difficult solos in themselves, but do need singers who can project a real sense of the 'solo' and also have an easy top Bb (both soloists) which can be managed without fuss in a lovely rising scale situation.

SATB Choral Score. Vocal Score. Adiemus Colores marks Karl Jenkins' return after ten years to the series that helped make his name, and it draws inspiration from the sights, sounds, colors and rhythms of Latin American music. As with the original Adiemus, Jenkins combines classical principles with the flavors of world and ethnic music supported by lively percussion. His choral writing adopts an invented language with no meaning, like scat singing in jazz. Each movement is named in Spanish after a color and explores the mood each evokes for the composer, embracing Brazilian samba, Argentinian tango and Spanish bolero. Adiemus Colores is scored for choir and ensemble with soloists, with a total duration of 75 minutes. Performance materials are available on hire. SERIES: BH Large Choral. Media: Softcover. .

Ballad of Heroes, Op 14 1939 Vocal Score      Add to Cart      View price.

No image available.

(1939) Vocal Score. SATB. for tenor (or soprano) solo, chorus and orchestra Scoring: 3 (II=picc), 2, ca (=obIII), 2 , cl in Eb, 2, dbl bn (=bnIII); 4, 2, 3, 1; timps, 2 perc (xyl, sd, td, bd, whip, cymb); harp, strings; OFFSTAGE: 3 trumpets in C; sd (optional instruments are ca, dbl bn, offstage tpts and sd). Britten asks for the offstage instruments to be in a gallery or 'isolated position', and later to be out of sight. Text: W H Auden and Randall Swingler Publisher: Boosey & Hawkes Difficulty level: 3 (for chorus) This highly dramatic and rarely performed work was written for a Festival of Music for the People and first performed on 5 April 1939 at the Queen's Hall, London, conducted by Constant Lambert. It is another of Britten's passionate outbursts against the waste and horror of war which had already engulfed Europe once earlier in the century and was about to do so for the second time. The declaration of war was made on 3 September that year. His choice of texts is highly significant. He had collaborated with Randall Swingler as recently as the previous year on his short unaccompanied choral work Advance Democracy - another politically motivated piece (see separate entry). Both Swingler and Auden were aiming in their poems to goad the downtrodden Englishman into standing up and fully living the life of freedom for which their forebears fought and lost their lives. Swingler's lines which say: 'You who lean at the corner and say We have done our best, ...To you we speak, you numberless Englishmen, To remind you of the greatness still among you...Your life is yours, for which they died'. sum up the essence of the message of the piece. The work is in three continuous movements. First comes a Funeral March (to Swingler's poem part-quoted above), then a manic Scherzo, a Dance of Death to a rum-te-tum verse by Auden which only increases its sense of the macabre. Finally comes a slow and powerful recitative and chorale and a slow Epilogue in which the funeral march music from the opening returns. Virtually the whole of the first section of the opening movement is in unison for the chorus. The slow tread of the funeral march is given an added solemnity by this unison singing. The first ten bars are recited on a low C, the next eight bars an octave higher, and after this there is a mixture of simple harmony (more to avoid high notes for low voices) and further unison singing for the rest of the movement. The Scherzo is interesting in setting out the first three vocal parts in a kind of fugal progress. The tenors have the first complete statement in the home key (G minor), the altos are next in the dominant but by themselves, the sopranos are next in line and back in the tonic - again by themselves, and finally the basses have the subject but this time as the basis of a canon at the unison between them and the altos (in a truncated version).

for SATB Chorus and Soloists a cappella. SATB a cappella. Blake Fragments was written for performance in Frank Lloyd Wright's iconic Guggenheim Museum in New York City and calls for the solo voices to be placed in various positions on the concentric rings that rise up from the central rotunda. In subsequent performances this configuration will generally be impossible, but the soloist arrangement that was used is included should performers like to respond in some fashion to the original arrangement. The piece may be performed with the four soloists singing within the main chorus, though some spacial separation, on a single level, or additionally using a balcony or backstage, might better dupicate the original intentions. To allow for different positions, the four solo parts may be sung by more than four choral members (in the premiere there were two different sopranos covering the soprano part.)

No image available.

(1959) Vocal Score. Vocal Score. for SATB soloists, chorus and orchestra Scoring: 2 (II=picc), 2, 2, 2; 4, 2, 3, 1; timps; 4 perc (trng, tamburo militaire, tamb, cymb, Chinese block, bd, t-t, xyl, glock, bells in C); 2 harps (II ad lib); pf (cel ad lib); strings Text: in Latin compiled from the charter of the University, and from older orations in praise of Basle by Bernhard Wyss. Publisher: Boosey & Hawkes Difficulty level: 4 (for chorus) Britten's genius lifts this work above being just a worthy celebration of the 500th anniversary of the foundation of Basle University. It is tongue-in-cheek and mockingly non-academic while referring all the time to academic musical forms and formulae. It is written in two parts (everything is in the statutory Latin including the titles of the parts - Pars I and Pars II). The titles of the movements show Britten's intention to show off a wide variety of techniques. Here are some examples: Chorale/Alla Rovescio (the theme is given and responded to with the same melody upside down)/Recitativo/Tema seriale con fuga/Canone ed ostinato. There is a good deal of humour here. There are seven movements in Pars I and six in Pars II. The tenor soloist is given three florid recitatives, accompanied only by a piano, which act as bridges between other orchestrally accompanied movements. Of these the most noteworthy are the Arioso con canto popolare for soprano solo with tenors and basses who hum a student song; another terrific Britten scherzo; and a wonderfully raucous final pair of movements (Canon ed ostinato and Corale con canto) where Britten seems to be aping the Vivat Regina! cries in Parry's I was glad or encouraging the kind of noisy 'I'm from the best university' kind of student touchline shout. This has outrageously high notes for the tenors (top B) which further endorse this feeling. There are real echoes of the Spring Symphony (see separate entry) final movement here which are further underlined by the last section of the Cantata which brings in the bells, piano, huge percussion and the inevitable chorale in which the choir sings 'that a free academy may thrive in a free community, for ever the ornament and treasure of illustrious Basle'. This may not be Britten at his most soul-searching but, as always, there is plenty here to enjoy, especially if the work is not taken too seriously. It is a celebratory, occasional piece and it could be well taken up by other academic establishments celebrating big anniversaries. The chorus parts are not very difficult though they do present challenges for the choir - not least in having tenors capable of those very high notes at the end. The Tema seriale con fuga is sinewy and needs careful tuning. It also has the subject regularly given upside down after its initial sounding by the basses. All good fun.

Cantata Misericordium, Op 69 1963 Choral Score      Add to Cart      View price.

No image available.

(1963) Choral Score. CHORAL SCORE. for tenor and baritone solos, small chorus and string quartet, string orchestra, piano, harp and timpani. Text: In Latin by Patrick Wilkinson Publisher: Boosey & Hawkes Difficulty level: 4 (chorus parts) This work is a different as chalk from cheese from the Cantata academica. Here is a searingly beautiful work which presses all Britten's sympathetic buttons. It was composed for the centenary of the Red Cross and first performed in Geneva on 1 September 1963 conducted by Ernest Ansermet. Britten worked with his librettist, Patrick Wilkinson, to create a dramatic scena around the parable of the Good Samaritan. How appropriate this was for the organisation whose work it was intended to celebrate. Wilkinson set it in Latin, giving the Cantata a timeless sense of the universality of the message the parable conveys. Britten's scoring further emphasises the intimacy of the work which has echoes of Saint Nicolas and the Ceremony of Carols in its use of the harp and piano. The separate string quartet, however, is the truly personal touch giving that powerful sense of looking in on a private conversation. The quartet begins the work with a contrapuntal figure which returns at key moments as a refrain or as a joining passage marking the arrival of a new potential source of help to the wounded man, and again at the end. This is a work which barely raises its voice. The emphasis is on compassion and not on the violence done to the traveller who was so badly injured and so callously ignored by the priest and the Levite who passed by. This Cantata immediately followed the composition of the War Requiem, and Owen's pity and waste of war is at the heart of this new work which could have painted a very different picture of righteous indignation or the fighting which would leave the traveller broken by the wayside. The end of the work also has strong resonance with the War Requiem when the Samaritan has taken the traveller to recover in a local inn and says: 'sleep now, my friend, sleep: forget your injuries.' Britten has achieved a remarkable effect in this work. It leaves an indelible impression on its listeners and, like all stories designed to demonstrate a moral, sends one away intent on being a better person. The choral parts of the Cantata misericordium are quite challenging, though not in the league of Sacred and Profane or A Boy was Born. What is essential in performing this work ,however, is that the choral parts should be so well sung that the gentle nature of the work is not disturbed by obviously problematic passages for choir. The whole concentration should be on the message, as Britten intended. It is the moral of the tale and not its means of communication which is paramount.

Cenotaph Chorus and Orchestra SATB Chorus and Piano Reduction Vocal Score      Add to Cart      View price.

No image available.

Chorus and Orchestra SATB Chorus and Piano Reduction Vocal Score. SATB. Dominick Argento's Cenotaph was the American Choral Directors Association's Raymond W. Brock Memorial Commission for its 2009 national convention in Oklahoma City. A cenotaph is defined as a monument to someone buried elsewhere, and the cenotaphs found in America-and indeed across the world-have inspired Argento's writing. This newly-commissioned work uses a collage of textual sources, and employs the composer's signature harmonic language and melodic beauty. From the initial muted rumblings of a crowd awaiting a parade to the broad a cappella textures of its internal movements, Cenotaph commemorates those who have given their lives for their countries, no matter what that country happens to be.

No image available.

(1942, rev. 1943) SATB and Harp or Piano. SATB. for boys' or female voices and harp (piano in extremis but with alterations and omissions) There is also a version for SATB and harp arranged by Julius Harrison Texts: Latin and English 1. Procession (using a variant of the Magnificatantiphon for the second Vespersof the Nativity of Our Lord) 2. Wolcum Yole! (anon.) 3. There is no rose (anon.) 4a. That yongë child (anon.) 4b. Balulalow (James, John and Robert Wedderburn) 5. As dew in Aprille (anon.) 6. This little babe (Robert Southwell) 7. Interlude (harp solo) 8. In Freezing Winter Night (Robert Southwell) 9. Spring Carol (William Cornish) 10. Deo gracias (anon.) 11. Recession (as for Procession) Publisher: Boosey & Hawkes Difficulty level: 3 The Ceremony of Carols is one of Britten's best-known and most-performed works. It is a brilliantly conceived and dramatic concert work which sees the voices process to their places singing unaccompanied plainsong and, at the end, processing out again to the same chant. These movements can also be accompanied but strictly only if the voices do not process. The final Alleluia can be repeated as many times as necessary to get the singers to and from their destination. The carols are for three-part childrens voices (though, of course they can be sung by female adults as well) and they form a two-part work around a central Interlude for harp which is based on the plainsong from the Procession. Variety is the key word here as all the carols have such individual identities. The forthright Wolcum Yole!, the deliciously lyrical There is no Rose, the swinging Balulalow, the fiery and dramatic This little Babe all contribute to a work which is a feast of discovery throughout. Lovely solos and duos add further colour and the harp part, an inspired choice of accompaniment, enriches, colours and surrounds the voices with its pictorial musical imagery. If anything shows Britten's genius for writing for voices it must be this work. The challenges here are in creating a real equality between voice parts, fielding a confident pair of soloists, and making the most of the wonderfully colourful poems Britten has chosen to set. Pronunciation is not really an issue, but when I recorded this work with the Finzi Singers I decided to follow the example of Sacred and Profane and use authentic medieval pronunciation for which an expert coach was necessary. It brings an added element of colour to a familiar aural experience. Duration: 22 minutes Paul Spicer, Lichfield, 2011 SERIES: BH Large Choral. . Composer: Benjamin Britten. EAN: 0

from Gloriana (1953) SATB a cappella. SATB DV A Cappella. version for SATB (1954) 9' version for tenor solo, harp and chorus (1967, for the opening of the Queen Elizabeth Hall, London) 11' Text: William Plomer Publisher: Boosey & Hawkes Difficulty level: 2-3 These colourful pieces form a masque in the opera which was performed for Queen Elizabeth I (Gloriana) on her visit to Norwich and performed by local people for her entertainment and in loyal homage. Each short scena represents a different group: Time, Concord, country girls, (S/A) young rustics and fishermen (T/B) and a finale in which all pay homage to their Queen. In the version for tenor solo with harp and chorus these movements are prefaced and linked by the soloist with harp who sets the scene for each movement and, in the final homage, joins the choir by adding a fifth vocal line (the harp also joins this movement) which transforms the piece. These pieces make an ideal concert item and are not very difficult. They do however need reasonably agile sopranos/altos for the Country Girls movement, and a good balanced team of two tenors and two basses for the Rustics and Fishermen. As with many of Britten's choral works there is a lovely balance of moods between the movements which helps to make a satisfying whole. The Final Dance of Homage is particularly moving with its imitative lines moving between voice-parts and building to an impassioned climax before subsiding to a quiet ending.

No image available.

Treble Solo, SATB Chorus and Organ. SATB, Organ. Text: Book of Common Prayer: liturgy of Morning Prayer Publisher: Boosey & Hawkes Difficulty level: 2-3 Britten's second setting of the Te Deum is completely different from the C major one he wrote eleven years earlier. It was composed for the centenary Festival of St. Mark's Church in Swindon - an Anglo-Catholic church with a strong choral tradition which continues to this day. The structure of the piece is also different from the earlier work. A lengthy first section in unison which, while carefully notated in a variety of time signatures so that it feels as if it has the freedom of Gregorian chant, is accompanied by static organ chords in a regular 3/4 metre. It is a really imaginative approach, and is actually very simple to perform. While the organ chords continue, the choir breaks up into simple imitative phrases at 'The glorious company of the Apostles praise Thee' but soon returns to the unison lines of the opening. The central section ('Thou art the King of Glory, O Chris't) has fanfare-like phrases from the choir interspersed by short dramatic outbursts from the organ which then subside into a rhythmic piano section with an important ostinato pedal part for the organ. These two ideas are then mixed together before the opening organ chords return and a treble/soprano soloist sings a lovely line. The choir joins and takes the canticle to its gentle conclusion with the soloist having the last word. This setting is more straightforward than the earlier one. It does, however, have rhythmic issues which have to be mastered fully to do it justice. The choir, for instance, must not be pulled off course by the different time signature for the organ part in the opening and closing sections. It is all very straightforward in reality, it just looks complicated. Britten has thoughtfully annotated the vocal rhythm throughout the organ part for safety. The organist needs to be a confident musician. Where Britten may write eminently practically for the abilities of a parish church choir, he does not make similar allowances for the organist and the accompaniment is key to the success of a performance of this and many other such works.

Five Flower Songs, Op 47 1950 SATB a cappella      Add to Cart      View price.

No image available.

(1950) SATB a cappella. SATB a cappella. for unaccompanied SATB Texts:1. To Daffodils - Robert Herrick 2. The Succession of the Four Sweet Months - Robert Herrick 3. Marsh Flowers - George Crabbe 4. The Evening Primrose - John Clare 5. The Ballad of Green Broom - Anon. Publisher: Boosey & Hawkes Difficulty level: 3-4 These lovely, classic part-songs were written as a 25th wedding anniversary present for Dorothy and Leonard Elmhirst of Dartington Hall. Apparently Britten chose the subject matter because they were keen botanists. Whatever the reason for the choice, it was a supremely happy one and brought from Britten a set of pieces which, while in a direct line of descent from the classic part-songs of Elgar, Stanford and Parry, are entirely original. These songs are designed as a set. The mood-scape shows that Britten was keenly aware of the variety needed to satisfy performers and audience between bookends. The unsentimental originality of To Daffodils with its tempo marking of Allegro impetuoso focusing on the speedy demise of the flower which is of course a metaphor for the passing of life; the clever division into four voices for the four months in The Succession of the Four Sweet Months and that beautifully simple device at the end where each month is named and forms a lovely cadence; the bitter-sweet Marsh Flowers to its poem by George Crabbe and the way Britten makes a slightly menacing atmosphere relieved only by the description of gentler plants; the ever-so-slightly sentimental Evening Primrose, the slow movement of the set; and finally Green Broom, a tour-de-force of humour which is crowned, at its heart, by Britten's slightly hysterical altos singing 'Go fetch me the boy'! The gradual accelerando throughout this piece leading to the final flourish makes this a wonderful and exciting finale to a set of part-songs which should be at the heart of any choirs repertoire. Points for choral directors to look out for include the tempo of To Daffodils. The key is in the direction Allegro impetuoso. Somewhere in the region of crotchet = 116 should be the aim. Within that tempo use the words to colour the interpretation. Look out, as always, for Britten's carefully marked articulation and watch out for the big dynamic contrasts and colours. Tuning is the issue in both No.2 and No.3. In the opening of Marsh Flowers be careful of the size of intervals and in the second bar use the two anchors of F and C# to try to ensure that pitch doesnt slip. The return to a note which has already been sung should always be fractionally higher (masked by the change of vowel) thus ensuring that the pitch is always kept in place. In Green Broom it is issues of ensemble more than anything which provide the major challenge. This, and the stepping of increases in speed which should be measured so that the end does not become dangerously out of hand! Duration: 12 minutes Paul Spicer 2011 SERIES: BH Large Choral. .

(1933-35) Unison Voices and Piano. UNIS. Twelve children's songs with piano accompaniment Texts:1. Begone, dull care (anon.) 2. A tragic story (William Makepeace Thackeray) 3. Cuckoo! (Jane Taylor) (in 2 parts, 2nd ad lib.) 4. Ee-Oh! (anon.) 5. A New Year Carol (anon.) 6. I mun be married on Sunday (Nicholas Udall) 7. There was a man of Newington (anon.) 8. Fishing Song (Izaac Walton) 9. The useful plough (anon.) 10. Jazz-Man (Eleanor Farjeon) 11. There was a monkey (anon.) 12. Old Abram Brown (anon.) (in 4 parts) (13.) Lone Dog (Irene Mc.Leod) Publisher: Boosey & Hawkes Difficulty level: 1-2 This set of mainly unison songs for young voices is a gift for a concert of music for upper voices. It is a substantial work taken as a whole but its individual movements are both short and straightforward in their various challenges. Britten wrote the work for the boys of his brother's preparatory school (age 7-13), Clive House, Prestatyn, in Wales to sing. However he encountered a problem with copyright over the use of the Lone Dog. He therefore wrote Begone, dull care to replace it. When these issues were resolved years later the song was included as an appendix item in the 1994 edition. The real beauty of these songs is that Britten never writes down for the children. These are art songs in the best sense of the word and mix both dark and light humour with seriousness and romance to create a little world of changing scenes and emotions. The texts are, as always, carefully chosen to give Britten maximum variety of mood and to challenge and encourage the childrens interest and involvement. The piano parts carry a lot of the responsibility for the creation of mood and atmosphere and ideally need a pianist of reasonable accomplishment to do them justice. In There was a monkey Britten writes an increasingly challenging part which is very effective in making the charged mood rise to its climax. However, he writes an easier alternative part which can be played if the pianist finds the other too difficult. The mixture of texts gives Britten wonderful opportunities for word painting. The lively Begone, dull care which opens the work, the nonsense poem of A tragic story where a man wants his pigtail to hang in front so he can see it, the gentle story of the Cuckoo and his progress through the months of the year, the rather sobering story (especially in our post-fox hunting ban days) of the shooting of a fox by a farmer whose geese it has killed, the sublime A New Years Carol - and so on, leading to the powerful four part canon of Old Abram Brown. These little pieces demonstrate so clearly Britten's genius - his ability to write really good music which is so recognisably his - without any feeling that he is making compromises for the young singers.

(1955) SATB with Treble Solo (or Semi-Chorus) and Organ. SATB. for SATB, treble/soprano solo or semi-chorus/organ Text: from the Gradual of the Feast of St. Peter and St. Paul with Alleluia Publisher: Boosey & Hawkes Difficulty level: 3 Written for the Quincentenary of St. Peter Mancroft, Norwich in 1955 and based on the plainsong 'Tu es Petrus' which is loudly declaimed on the organ in unison before the choir's first entry. This more extended anthem picks up on elements which Britten had used in his Hymn to St. Cecilia thirteen years earlier. The broad unison melody with which the choral parts start is similar, however, to the opening of the Hymn of St. Columba. It is the middle section written as a scherzo which is reminiscent of the section in the St. Cecilia hymn at figure 8 ('I cannot grow; I have no shadow to run away from...'). This is also the part of this anthem which might give less able choirs some trouble. It needs to be sung 'quickly and lightly' as Britten indicates and his metronome mark at dotted crotchet = 112 is indeed fast! But the notes are not difficult and they certainly reward detailed work. The next section is a reprise of the opening which moves into a dying Alleluia. The final section has lovely solo (or semi-chorus) phrases in Latin separated by very soft choral interjections translating these phrases into English. It makes a very effective concert or liturgical work (see comments in Hymn to St. Columba about programming). Duration: 6 minutes Paul Spicer, Lichfield, 2011 SERIES: BH Large Choral. .

SSATB with Solos a cappella. SSATB. for unaccompanied SSATB with SSATB solos also version for solo voices Text: W.H.Auden Publisher: Boosey & Hawkes Difficulty level: 4 This work had a long gestation as Britten had problems finding a suitable text. Auden was eventually asked and produced the poem in 1940. Britten's setting was immediately recognised as a major addition to the choral repertory and has since become one of his most enduringly popular choral works. It is a nice coincidence that Britten was born on St. Cecilia's day (22 November). Cecilia is, of course, the Patron Saint of musicians who is supposed to have sung praises to God as she was being martyred. The story of her manner of death makes gruesome reading and the act of singing in extremis something of a miracle! Britten responds to Auden's extraordinary imagery with relish. The poem's division into three 'movements' gives Britten his musical structure, and the provision of a refrain ('Blessed Cecilia, appear in visions to all musicians, appear and inspire...') gives a point of reference marking the end of each section, and of the work. The three 'movements' are completely different from each other. This is a challenging work which should not be undertaken lightly. It needs sympathetic and careful preparation, understanding of the words, a readiness to accept the issues raised by the speed of the 'scherzo' movement and an ability to maintain pitch over this time-scale so that the very low notes at the end of the work are not made even lower through a general flattening. Having said all this, it is perfectly approachable by an amateur choir of reasonable attainment providing that enough rehearsal time is allowed for its preparation. The choir also needs to be able to field five confident soloists. Short as the solos are (except for the first soprano one which is more extended and different from the subsequent ones) they present issues which can test a less-confident singer.The hard work is always worth it as a successful performance of this work is rewarding and memorable.
