SATB: with String orchestra



The following is a compliation of responses to my inquiry for
chorus/string orchestra repertoire. Thanks, everyone!

There's a previous compilation of choral pieces that can be
performed with a string quartet, perhaps also with one or two
other instruments, on the ChoralNet website. You'll find it
by following this path:

choralnet.org > Repertoire > Lists > Lists by Instrumentation >
SATB with string quartet

---------
My favorite would be Beethoven's "Elegishe Gesang."

--------------------
There are many, many works, especially from earlier periods (composers
Buxtehude, Bach, Mozart). I would suggest Schubert's "Mass in G"
(strings &
organ), and Telemann's "Laudate Jehovam" (2 violins & continuo). Also, early
Mozart masses. The two pieces listed above are available for free at CPDL.

There are so many good works, and lists, incl. on ChoralNet. One work you
might consider is a Cantori New York favorite: Chris DeBlasio's THE BEST
BELOVED. It's a very beautiful work for chorus and strings. There are of
course a great many baroque and classical pieces, and there's no shortage
of 20th c. works also.

Orchestra folks frequently use David Daniels's Handbook> as a reference for instrumentations and durations, and often
as a
source of ideas. Among the book's helpful appendices is one listing these
works for chorus and strings:

Buxtehude: Magnificat
Purcell: Ode for St. Cecilia's Day (1683 & 1685 versions)

laurentanae, K.109 / Misericordias Domini, K.222 / Missa brevis, K.140 /

16'-30' -

Check out Daniels "Orchestral Music", published, I believe, by Scarecrow

works
with chorus.

-----------------------------------

on my website www.compovista.com you´ll find some pieces arranged for choirs
in the whole world.
My suggestions:

1. "Born In Nazareth" (SATB, piano, strings - on the site as PDF for SATB
with piano).

2. "Eichendorff-Zyklus" (new Edition - on the site for TTBB and strings).

All songs you see on the page I´m able to arrange for SATB (or other) and
strings.

Further: You have suggestions about pieces which you would like to perform
with chorus and strings?
Please write me under info(a)compovista.com !
----------------------------------------


Use MUSICA -- it is possible to do an advanced search where you specify the
instrumentation you are looking for. There's a musica link on the ChoralNet
web site.

Also, the Schubert Mass in G is a good piece for community group and
strings. There are lots of satisfying works for this combination.

Good luck!

Hi, Barbara,
My Seasons is a 10 minute work for SATB divisi connected with poetry

I have a lot of information in a data base on my computer.

Are you interested in the standard four part string ensemble? There are
many
baroque works that use only two violins and continuo. That would be
true of
many of the Mozart mass settings as well.

If you give me more specific information I will send some suggestions.

There's at least a zillion pieces that fit this criterion. If you
listed all of them, the compilation would overload Choralist, ha ha!
Anyway, here's a great starting point:
choralnet.org > Repertoire > Lists > by Instrumentation

At least half of the orchestral music written in the Baroque is for
strings only (Gibbons, Purcell, Monteverdi, Telemann, etc.); less so
for Handel and Bach. Here are some specific pieces:

Gibbons, This is the record of John
Purcell, Ode for St Cecilia's Day
Vivaldi, Gloria
Vivaldi, Magnificat
Handel Dixit Dominus
Certain Bach cantatas such as 4, 153, 196
Pergolesi Magnificat (actually composed by Francesco Durante)
Mozart's early masses or Ave Verum Corpus
Haydn's early masses, such as the "Little Organ Mass"
Schubert Mass in G
Finzi, In terra pax
Saint-Saens, Christmas Oratorio
Buxtehude, Das neugeborne Kindelein

>Is there a source where music is listed by performance forces
>required--something in more detail than just "chorus and orchestra"?

The ideal book for this is "Orchestral Music" by David Daniels. It
gives exact orchestration and duration of thousands of pieces, plus
commentaries on editions and other stuff.

>I was told by my local music store that there is no further breakdown--is
>that true?
They were referring, of course, to the limitations on their own
knowledge, and to that extent they were telling the truth. Some
publishers' catalogs are particularly unhelpful. Ask Kalmus for a
copy of their orchestral catalog, though; they have lots of pieces
and it specifies the exact instrumentation of each one.

Stephen Paulus has a great set of pieces called
"Christmas Tidings" for choir and strings (and
optional handbells on one movement) - the movements
are very accessible (but fresh) arrangements of
familiar Christmas Carols for both choir and orchestra
and audience.

Melissa
-----------------------------------------
You might try Educational Music Service (www.emsmusic.com I think)
They focus primarily on largeer choral works (over 5 minutes) and choral
works with orchestra/strings/band/etc. They are very helpful and great
to deal with.

I will be glad to send you a handout of short choral works with strings
suitable
for high school/college choruses, from an MENC workshop I did a while back.
It
might be useful. I just need your address.

I do a Masterworks Concert each year with my high school choirs. The
premise is a major work
with instrumental accompaniment as scored by the composer. I can't hire
a full orchestra so we do
works with small instrumental groups but still of good quality. For
small groups of strings look at
Bach Cantata #4 or any of Mozart's Missa brevis settings.

Ted Williams, Vermilion OH.
-------------------------------------------
Search around on the Choralnet website for repertoire. There you will
find listings by instrumental
and voicing. Also, I will forward a compilation to you from another
Lister. Hope this all helps.

I have a suite of pieces on American texts, THROUGH THE EYES OF A CHILD for

Lux Nova Press carries my setting of the Phos Hilaron,
"O Gracious Light" which is lyrical and contemplative,
very choir-friendly (essentially two-part choir) with
accompaniment of strings and harp. Duration is about
seven minutes.

Please let me know if I might have the Press send you
a review score.

-----------------------------------------

Off the top of my head, I have two pieces you may want to consider...

1. The very traditional Mozart "Ave Verum", which is scored for
strings and keyboard.
2. "Dreams and Dances" by Gwyneth Walker.
"Dreams and Dances" is a three-movement work on text of Lucille Clifton.
The first movement is "Bones be Good", which has become a popular piece
in the past six years or so, and the second and third movements ("Some
dreams hang in the air" and "Let there be new flowering") are especially
beautiful when performed with the string accompaniment. Some sections
call for divisi among voice parts, and Ms. Walker uses modern and jazz
harmonies very effectively. I think that a good community choir should
be able to sing them well. The work was commissioned by Simsbury and
Farmington High Schools in CT in the early 90s (I was at Farmington). I
haven't heard them performed as a set since, but I highly recommend
them. Published by ECS.

Friends,

Since I sent out this compilation, I've received additional suggestions. Since I'm completely anal
about being as complete as possible, here are the new pieces to include. As before, I've included
whatever people sent, even if more than strings are included.

New pieces:

Convivencia, for String Quartet, and Harp by John Rommereim 22 minutes. Settings of love poetry from
Christian, Islamic, and Jewish traditions

"La señal" with poems of Jaime Sabines. by Jorge Córdoba Valencia (México)
mixed choir, tenor solo, 2 oboes, 2 vibraphones and strings

Choral Wiki has nice works by Isabella Leonarda, like the Magnificat and Dixit Dominus, with two
violins and continuo. They are off the beaten path, but are great re-discoveries.

And one warning about the versions of Vaughan Williams's major works edited for strings and piano:
the string parts are the same as in the original large version and the piano attempts to cover
everything else, which someone described as "unworkable."

I think that's it!



Friends,

Thanks to all who replied. Some wonderful ideas!

Here is the original post. Please note that the file in the choralnet
archives contains additional works, as noted in the original post. The
additions are as they were sent, whether just for strings or not.

Original post:

The last compilation of works for mixed choir and strings in the archives is
6 years old. I'm
interested in updating this. If anyone would like to add works that are not
already on that post
(or on the similar post for choir and string quartet), I'd be happy to
compile.

I've taken the old post and simplified it, alphabetized it, but I left it in
three lists, one with
timings and one without, and then all of Martin Banner's editions. I
eliminated from the original compilation lots of pieces that more than
strings when that info was listed. I also completely arbitrarily eliminated
suggestions directly from composers of their own pieces and seasonal piece;
those suggestions are still in the archives. I apologize for that!

ADDITIONS TO THE LIST:

Gwyneth Walker - The Golden Harp with string orchestra or string quartet
(www.gwynethwalker.com)

Wayland Rogers - LAUDATE DOMINUM, 4:45

Zeiler Magnificat - Great piece for soloists (esp. soprano) and chamber
orches

I am looking for an extended SATB choral work (15-25 minutes) with String orchestra accompaniment by a Classical period composer appropriate for the fourth Sunday of Advent (Magnificat setting). Any suggestions? Thanks for the help.

Guy,

You should look at the Finzi Magnificat for next year. No Gloria Patri, but wonderful, could use organ or parts on rental from Boosey.
