Looking for Advent/Christmas music by U.S. composers
Date: July 23, 2014
I know, shoot me for being some kind of gungho redneck patriot. I'm not, but as I started building a program around several pieces, suddenly realized I had a theme going: Pinkham, Berkey, Burt, LaRocca, hammer dulcimer, appalachian. So if you have some great stuff that fits one of these criteria, drop me a direct line either through ChoralNet or at james(dot)feiszli(at)sdsmt(dot)edu :
U.S. citizen as composer
SATB (divisi is OK - but I have plenty of men, so will avoid SSAATB things unless my first tenors can do the A2)
unaccompanied or hammer dulcimer - I happen to have the services of Lucille Reilly at my disposal this year. She married an alum!
sacred text/theme - we do the concert in a Catholic cathedral so Vatican rules apply. I can stretch them sometimes, but "deck the halls" is out.
language - no issues with any western languages
I have already gone through everything posted in this community.
