20 minutes piece for undergrad choir
Date: April 8, 2013
I'm writing to ask for help.
I'm a grad student in choral conducting and next semester I'll have a choir for a recital for the first time.
The choir is pretty large (60 singers), but the majority of the singers are not music majors.
I can work a piece a capella or with a small orchestra, and I can have soloists also.
My goal is to find a 20, 25 minutes piece that is not so difficult and, at the same time, with some musical challenges great enough to convince my teachers of its importance.
I thought about Haendel's Utrecht Te Deum.
But I'd love to hear some suggestions.
