Saengerliebe - Saengerkrieg

Saengerliebe - Saengerkrieg

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.
