A piece to introduce a church choir to Classical Music
Date: April 13, 2014
Hello! I'm a director of a very small (10 people on a good day) church choir and I'm trying to find a piece we can use as a "goal" to work towards. (I have to make a presentation on a measurable goal that I've set for the choir to the church board). I'd like to do something within the Classical realm since the group is mostly used to singing just Protestant hymn arrangments.
I'm preferrably looking for something in English, maybe Latin, with organ or piano. I was thinking an old work of English polyphony, like Tallis or Byrd, or possibly Handel?
The choir is all pretty good readers, but we have a stronger men's section than women's.
Any and all suggestions are appreciated!
