Karen MerkleyJust a quick thought. For some reason every women's choir I've sung in or listened to always seems to do slow songs. I get that they're so pretty and all, but having sung in a women's choir, PLEASE choose at least some songs with a quick tempo. I'm sure you know that, but experience tells me that we often forget when we plan. lol :-D
Jessica PomeroyI agree with Karen Merkley. So much women's music is slow, which has its place, but my girls live for the intense and fast pieces like Psalm 100 by Clausen, Las Amarilllas by Hatfield, Kaval Sviri and Ergen Deda by Lyondev, Cantate Domino by Lang, Psalmo 150 by Aguilar and lots more!
Jason NeumannI agree with Cradle Hymn. We did it with the strings and piano this last year and ended up taking it to Carnegie Hall because the girls liked it so much. While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks By Night, Craig Courtney. I have done the third set of Hymn to the Rig Veda by Holst. Great piece if you have a harpist. My girls also enjoyed Ola Gjeilo's Ubi Caritas.
