Looking for lliterature for Tenor soloist and SATB or TTBB Chorus
Date: May 5, 2014
We have a guest artist who is a tenor coming to our area this summer and wants to do a benefit concert for us. We would like for us to do a couple works together but I am having a difficult time finding literature for my adult volunteer choir and a tenor soloist. The soloist suggested "Als flotter Geist" from "Der Ziguenerbaron" of which I have not found a score (nor do I think I have the money to purchase the score for everyone). Other suggestions have been "Die Allmacht" by Schubert, "Sanctus" from the St. Cecilia Mass by Gounod, & "Serenade" from "The Student Prince" by Romberg. I just would like to find a few more options to choose from for this event.
The selections could be a cappella or accompanied. I would prefer German but that really doesn't matter at this point. It can be any style both sacred or secular music. These selections would need to be for SATB chorus of about 65 or my men's chorus of about 25. We have a pretty good balance of parts as well. As stated, it is a volunteer group. They are older than most choirs and they are not a professional ensemble but more like a good church choir type of group.
Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
