SATB: with String Bass



Dear collegues,

thank you all, who answered to my question!
(Well, I did not mean "Pieces for choir with
doubled bass i.e. SATBB, but for SATB +
string-bass)

The two pieces I already knew before, are:

1. Rolf Schweizer: Sanctus (SSATTBB + string-bass
+ flute + vibes) Haenssler Vlg. Stuttgart/Germany

2. Ronald Antenrieth: Pater noster (SATB +
string-bass) Ed. Music Contact

percussion).

We are doing Vijay Singh's Dance Today With Joy
this season, and planning to
use a double bass to carry a wonderful hemiola
figure through most of the
piece (it's written for the piano, but a bass will
be fantastic.) Published
by National Music Publishers.

There is a jazzy set of three Christmas pieces for
choir and bass by, I
think, Henze? They are in German.

+++++++++++++++++++++++

I also have a *Hodie Christus Natus Est* for that
combination (SSATBB, treble
choir, cb, opt brass 4tet or keyboard & opt
drumset) that is in the style of
HWZ. Please let me know if this would be of
interest.

French church music for choir, organ and double
bass (and sometimes harpa) in the second half of
19th century (Fauré)

And some collegues suggested to do pieces by
Schuetz or Bach (Jesu, meine Freude) with
douhble-bass.

+++++++++++++++++++++++

You all helped me very much. I ordered many of
those pieces at my music store.
In autumn I will do a concert (with my chamber
choir CAPPELLA VOCALE NEUWIED) with pieces of this
list.
