SSA or SSAA: Avant-garde pieces



Thank you for the quick responses. As requested by several of you,
below is a compilation.

I might suggest "Aglepta" by Arne Mellnas, which is a combination of
spoken
and pitched material. Very effective.

I've enjoyed Ernst Toch's "Geographical Fugue" with my h.s.
women's choir: just divide the parts.
----
The highlight of my fall season last year was Rupert Lang's
"Ubi Caritas." (Boosey and Hawkes)

I also have programmed Murray Schafer's "Epitaph for
Moonlight" with just 12-14 h.s. women.
----
This sounds interesting. Short piece? Would she be interested in
working with a Georgia composer? See my website at
http://www.luxnova.com/ and click on my picture, or go to "Composers"
and click on my name.
----
Might be able to make 'geographical fugue' by Ernst Toch work.
----
Oxford University Press publishes two titles by Brock McElheran

Here Comes the Avant Garde
385455-4 $1.20
Can be done by women's chorus, or men's chorus or mixed chorus.

For the first time in awhile I will be teaching freshmen treble choir. therefore, I have been out of touch with that repertoire. I am looking for something doable in SSA for 9th graders with good middle school training. Most especially I need something for the fall.
