In search of avant garde SATB acapella for collegiate student-run choir
Date: March 4, 2013
Im part of a student acapella choir that sings strictly acapella music. Some of our past repertoire includes Nox Aurumque - Whitacre, Abendlied by Rheinberger, Witness - Stacey Gibbs, Distance cant keep us two apart - Chen Yi, Long Road by Eriks Esenvaldsand. To get an idea of our sound here's Sleep by Whitacre http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BbQb7N42ijI ...... I think I would call this trendy choral music that everyone does and can be a showstopper if done correctly. Some of these were also presented at past ACDA events.
Unfortunately we've lost a lot of members and are now a 14 person group with 3 sopranos, 3 altos, 3 tenors, 2 baritones, 3 basses. (we might have more members as these next few weeks pass by).. We are looking for innovative music in any language to learn and audition for an ACDA event coming up next school year.
These are somethings I came across so far and would like things similar to this:
ANY suggestions would be greatly appreciated, we recently found Ubi Caritas by Durufle and some songs about Frogs? We can do it all just as long as the parts don't call for heavy division
