Great repertoire for collegiate chamber choir
Date: August 26, 2012
Hi All —
I'm starting up a small chamber choir of 8-16 singers who are upperclassmen at the collegiate level and are nearly all voice majors. They'd love to do some beautiful SATB or SSAATTBB accapella repertoire that challenges them yet being a student myself with limited experience picking repertoire, I find that I don't know where to start in terms of picking the right repertoire for a group of their size. Can you guys give some good suggestions for great repertoire you think would be possible with this type of ensemble? They're great musicians/readers. The pieces also need to be unaccompanied and can be in any language. I'd prefer they were stand-alone and not multi-movement works or masses.
Some of my current thoughts are:
Ubi Caritas by Ola Gjielo
Afternoon on a Hill by Colin Britt
O Lord God by Chesnokov
I Sing As I Arise Today by James Fritchell
Thanks for your help!
