Repertoire for short concert in Venice; small amateur choir; brass quartet
Date: August 9, 2012
I'm taking a choir of around 20 adult mixed-ability singers from the UK to Venice for a weekend with a brass quartet (2 trumpets/2 trombones) at the end of October. We're looking for repertoire for a 45minute concert of mainly English and Italian music, 4 or 5 part (split sops.), mainly though not necessarilty exclusively religious.
We are considering the following at the moment:
Funeral Music for Queen Mary (Purcell),
Remember not Lord, Hear my Prayer(Purcell)
Cantate Domino, Adoramus te (Monteverdi)
O Magnum mysterium, Canzonas (Gabrielli)
Psalm 100, Jauchzet dem Herrn (Schütz) (brass taking choir 2)
I'd be grateful for any other suggestions.
We will probably only have two rehearsals before the day of the concert.
