I’m excited to announce that Personage Press has published three recent compositions of mine for a cappella SATB choir. All of them will well reward the effort your choir puts in with unexpected sonorities, rhythmic interest, and dramatic text-painting. The pieces are:
As kingfishers catch fire: a Brittenesque, polyrhythmic setting of the Gerard Manley Hopkins sonnet, about 2.5 minutes long. Perusal demo video available at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=APF37yht3r0
O Clavis David: an upbeat, 5/4 Advent antiphon, about 4.5 minutes long. Perusal demo video available at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QvBoWtwwHLE
Songs in Time of Peril: a largely octatonic three-movement cycle setting Hebrew sacred texts from Job, Psalms, and Micah; about 17 minutes for the whole set, but each movement can stand on its own. Premiere performance video of movement 3 available at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gCrSuB65HOs
All these pieces are available through personagepress.com, Sheet Music Plus, and my score purchase page, nicholasweininger.com/scores. I’ve also made eight more pieces from my catalogue available through Sheet Music Plus Press, all of which can also be found on my score purchase page. Happy perusal!
