From: SIMON CARRINGTON
Subject: Chancellor's repertoire


With thanks to all concerned, I received the following suggestions for a
challenging short piece a cappella for our chancellor's inauguration:

Leonard Baernstein Gloria (from Choruses from the Lark)
Elliott Carter Musicians Wrestle Everywhere
Heinrich Schutz Gib unsern Fursten (Geistliche Chormusik)
Norman Dello Joio A Jubilant Song
John Rutter A Choral Fanfare
Harry Somers God the Master of this Scene
Randall Thompson The Road not taken
A Hymn for Scholars and Pupils
Last words of David
Fischer Tull The Seasons of Man

Vaughan Williams A Choral Flourish


(+ A "Latin American piece" which I need to track down from Harriet
Simons of SUNY Buffalo)

(+ one or two kind offers to write for the occasion)

I am most grateful to all and will decide after the Holiday.

This sharing of ideas is a wonderful boon, particularly for someone new
in the field.
I must reciprocate.
