Worldwide Winter Holidays/Festivals Literature
Date: May 5, 2012
I'm looking for quality literature to cover various "winter holidays/festivals", or holidays that happen during the winter months. I'm especially looking for literature from other world traditions, so something Hindi, Persian, Muslim, and Buddhist would be nice. Also, I'd like to include some of the festivals such as Winter Solstice (various traditions), Dongzhi, Yule, Yalda (Persian Solstice), Saturnalis, and various New Year's traditions.
My goal is to have a truly "Winter" Concert in December, featuring music of various traditions and celebrations that happen around the world during the winter season.
Literature should be for any voicings from unison/SA/TB to SATB with divisi (the only rep we can't use is advanced TTBB). We have five high school choirs of ability levels from beginners (SA and TB/TTB) to advanced (SSAA, SATB+).
