Christmas repertoire for SATB and strings
Date: May 16, 2010
This is something of a programming challenge! My chorus of 55-60 voices is going to share a concert this Christmas season with an area orchestra. We'll be singing our own concerts first, then on another week end, join the orchestra. For our own concerts, we'll have access to limited numbers of string players. I'm looking for repertoire that could do "double-duty": singable with scaled down numbers of strings, but then also singable with full orchestra, ideally including the winds as well.
Obviously a challenge! Look forward to your ideas!
