Hello everyone!

-Moderate difficulty at most; Length 25-35 min give or take.
-Choir: SATB with/without divisi
- Classical to Present re: time period
- Sacred or Secular text
-Orchestra will be made up of all professional musicians. Also, piano and three manual pipe organ are available at venue where concert will take place and can be used in instrumentation.

Ryan PryslakThanks everyone for the ideas! Just to keep it flowing- any more ideas from 19th, 20th centuries and beyond? Maybe not frequently performed gems?

Roger AmesRyan, if you send me your email address I can send you a recording and a score of my Pulitzer Prize nominated "REQUIEM FOR OUR TIME," with traditional text and the poetry of Anne Sexton -- it would be a premiere in your part of the world, I believe. It is 40 minutes in length -- the poetry is exquisite, and the music eclectic. Roger Ames, rogerwames@gmail.com
