Easy SATB Latin Sacred piece...
Date: November 30, 2012
I have a very active choir member that loves traditional 'high-church' Latin choral music from the Renaisance or Baroque eras, and has been pushing us to try something with a quartet. The singers are experienced and would not be intimidated by singing in Latin, but our rehearsal time is very limited. I would love to honor his request, but he keeps bringing me pieces that are far too long for our services, or far too difficult. I'd like to find something 2 minutes long, that we could basically sight read.
I direct the choir at an Episcopal church, but it is far from typical. The Liturgical calendar is sometimes more like a suggestion; while we will observe Advent, the sermon series will be based on classic Christmas cartoons. We enjoy a very eclectic blended worship style. While we typically sing one or two hymns from the Episcopal hymnal, the rest of the music is as likely to come from the Broadman hymnal as a contemporary praise book. Our anthems are more likely published by Shawnee than Schirmer, but our congregation welcomes nearly anything, as long as it is well done.
Let me hear from you guys!
