(new) Music for TTBB

To all those who compose music or know of music for male voices (TTB, TTBB, TTBBB, TTTBBB)
 
Next year my vocal ensemble (Voces Capituli, Belgium) will celebrates it's 10th anniversary.  We will have some festive masses to sing, some special concerts (a.o. one 'Marian' and one 'Requiem') and will go on concerttour to Switzerland (Abbaye of Sankt Gallen) and Italy (Firenze, Rome, Milan). 
As I am always looking for new music, I would like to ask all of you to send me your music as to see wether it could be incorporated in our program.  As we are a 'liturgical' choir, it would have to be sacred music, but I am interesting in any music we could sing in churches (during masses and/or concerts) : masses, motets, psalms, ... preferably a capella.  We have 7 singers, and can sing anything from 3 - 6 voices.
 
Many thanks,

If you're up for something in Hebrew, I have a setting of the last verse of Psalm 19 TTBB a capp (trans. "May the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be acceptable unto You, my Rock and my Redeemer"). I have scores/audio/video if this would be of interest.

Hi there Dirk
 
I have a couple of pieces that might be suitable:
Hodie Christus Natus Est (it says it's an 8-parter, but there are only ever 4-parts singing at once, and it's often been done in four parts!) http://sounz.org.nz/works/show/14450
 
You can hear versions of these pieces for high voices here: http://www.youtube.com/user/seapieparcel?feature=mhee
 
If you decide to obtain scores, they are also available from www.sounz.org.nz
 
 
Hope you like one or both of them.
 
Thanks
Cheryl

Hi Dirk,
 
You can find sacred Russian pieces for male choir by composers such as Rachmaninoff, Gretchaninoff, Tchaikovsky, and Chesnokov (among many others) here. We also offer some wonderful sacred pieces for male choir in english.
 
I hope this helps you find something that suits your needs,

Hello!
 
I have written a variety of works for the group I currently sing with, Cantus.  I have two works you might be interested in:
 
1. For the Beauty of the Earth - an arrangement I wrote for a radio special, and it worked out very well.  You can hear the recording of it on my media page here.
 
2. Cantate Domino - They premiered my setting of the Cantate Domino text last Christmas.  I have a recording of that as well, though not posted on my site yet.
 
If you'd like a perusal score of either (or the recordings), please email me at paulrudoi(a)gmail.com, or visit my site paulrudoi.com.
 
 
Thank you, and good luck with your search!
 
 - Paul
