Saengerliebe - Saengerkrieg Lyrische Narrative Im Aesthetischen Gedaechtnis Des Mittelalters Und Der Neuzeit

Saengerliebe - Saengerkrieg Lyrische Narrative Im Aesthetischen Gedaechtnis Des Mittelalters Und Der Neuzeit

Author: Nikolas Immer Format: Hardback Release Date: 31/07/2019

Geschichten uber die Liebe und den Streit mittelalterlicher Sanger haben eine lange Tradition. So berichten Dichter vom Mittelalter bis in die Gegenwart vom Tannhauser im Venusberg, von Meistersangern in- und ausserhalb Nurnbergs oder vom Sangerkrieg auf der Wartburg. Imaginationen lyrischer Handlungs- und Lebensweisen verdichten sich dabei zu einer spezifisch selbstbezogenen Reflexion uber Kunst. Die Frage, inwiefern darin zugleich ein Phanomen asthetischer Gedachtnisbildung vorliegt, bildet den Gegenstand des Sammelbandes. Er spannt den Bogen von den mittelalterlichen Textzeugen hin zu neuzeitlichen Adaptionen von der Romantik bis in die Postmoderne.

Samba Mass

Samba Mass

Author: Bob Chilcott Format: Sheet music Release Date: 04/07/2019

for SATB, piano, and optional guitar, bass, and drum kit Samba Mass is a joyous and colourful setting of the Latin Missa brevis. The work is framed by the gentle bossa nova style of the warm Kyrie and relaxed Agnus Dei, which is prefaced by a funky Benedictus. The compelling rhythms of samba come to the fore in the second movement, a vivacious Gloria, which is followed by a beautiful Sanctus that offsets a steady flow of quavers with rhythmic syncopations. The stylistic piano part can be played as written or serve as a guide, and an optional guitar, bass, and drum kit part is available separately for band accompaniment. Performers will enjoy exploring the interplay between voices and the rich, warm colours of the samba and bossa nova styles. This work was originally commissioned in a version for upper voices by the New Orleans Children's Chorus, Cheryl Dupont, Director, in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Crescent City Choral Festival, June 2019.

The Traditional Tunes of the Child Ballads, Volume 2

The Traditional Tunes of the Child Ballads, Volume 2

Author: Bertrand Harris Bronson Format: Hardback Release Date: 20/06/2019

Continuing the monumental work begun in Volume I, Bertrand Bronson presents here the words and music for Child Ballads 54 through 113. The texts are those established in the famous Child canon of English and Scottish ballads. To them, Mr. Bronson has added more than a thousand variant tunes grouped to show their melodic kinship, and the characteristic variations developed in the course of traditional singing and oral transmission. Originally published in 1962. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.

Red River

Red River

Author: Rob Wiffin Format: Sheet music Release Date: 11/06/2019

Red River is a piece full of raw energy. The title is about the feeling engendered by the name rather than a reference to a specific place. In the composer's mind it is a river coloured red by the dust of the earth in a hot, sun-drenched landscape. Full of fiery rhythmic drive and syncopation carried along by Latin percussion, performers will enjoy the vigour and verve of the music. Suitable for intermediate level (Grade 3/4) symphonic wind band.
