OTHER "O Magnum Mysterium" settings?
Date: June 1, 2012
In my upcoming "Animals and the Winter Holidays" Concert, I'd like to consider using several contrasting choral settings of "O Magnum Mysterium", I'm already well-acquainted with wonderful settings by Victoria, Morten Lauridsen, and Nicholas White. Can anyone recommend other settings which are in a completely different idiom (jazz, or othe "populist" styles, etc.)? I certainly plan to use a few of these fine established settings, but would also like to "push the envelope" somewhat, and introduce my audiences to potentially unfamiliar settings as well. It would probably be best not to have to much divisi beyond SATB this year. Many thanks!
