New choral composer at Bärenreiter

New choral composer at Bärenreiter

Hot off the press we present three sacred a capella choral works by Marten Jansson, a Swedish contemporary composer with whom we are very proud to start a cooperation. We are already fans of Marten Jansson's compositions and we hope you will like them too.

And these are the works we are talking about:

Fear thou not (SSMAA) (English)
The piece depicts how man can change from doubting to believing, led by the Father's voice which both comforts and admonishes.

Maria (IV) (SATB) (Swedish/English)
The music depicts Mary's sorrow as the mother of a child that belongs not to her, but to all mankind.

The Choirmaster's Burial (SSATBB) (Latin SSA/English TBB)
This piece uses word painting to re-tell Thomas Hardy's classic poem about an old tenor and the death of his choirmaster. The men and women are divided into two choirs; the men represent the old tenor telling the story and the women represent an angelic chorus singing the antiphon "In Paradisium" from the Requiem Mass.
