Suggestions for a piece for senior recital
Date: January 20, 2014
Currently as an undergrad senior, I'm preparing for my senior recital in voice, organ, and conducting. For the conducting portion, I'm asked to prepare three pieces by leading the rehearsal with a group of singers (not sure how many exactly at this point) from our college choir.
So far, I've picked Mozart's Ave verum corpus and Brahms' O Schöne Nacht. For the third piece, my voice teacher suggested an English piece by Handel, but I've also looked at The Road Home by Stephen Paulus. My only reservation with the Paulus piece is it's roughly in the same tempo and mood of the Mozart and Brahms pieces.
Can you give any suggestions for a third SATB piece in English at the same or near ability level and duration of the Mozart and Brahms pieces (preferably with piano or piano reduction accompaniment)? All three pieces should be in somewhat contrasting styles and periods. Any suggestions or feedback are welcomed. Thank you.
