Query re music on saints' names
Date: July 21, 2014
For a future (secular, concert hall) program that will include a new work on St. Cecilia, I'm seeking suggestions for mixed choral works whose text-subjects have something to do with particular saints.
Length - 5' to 45'
Instrumentation - can be 0 to 20 players (new work is 1 perc/org/str 0-0-0-4-1)
Soloists - can include 1 each STB
Language - any
Style period - late Baroque to mid-20th century
Of course I've already thought of Purcell and Handel on St. Cecilia, also Britten and Howells on same. I'd really like to have something or things on other saints.
Unfortunately, I am unable to consider new or recent works for this program.
Many thanks in advance for your suggestions.
