I am looking for choral works (Mixed and Treble) that are about Dreams and Nightmares. The latter is proving to be particularly challenging to find. Any help will be greatly appreciated!
On the theme of Dreams & Nightmares, you might take a look at…
•Brahms: Nachtwache op. 104
•Dowland: Sleep, wayward thoughts
•Faure: Clair de lune (unison)
•Foster: Beautiful dreamer
•Jones: hist whist
•Lassus: Toutes les nuits
•Mozart: Placido e il mar
•Persichetti: hist whist (SA)
•Wilbye: Draw on sweet night
“Dreams” have had more success in the pop field; some of the old standards are…
•Andree: Dream a little dream of me
•Balfe: I dreamt I dwelt in marble halls
•Gershwin: Man I love
•Harline: When you wish upon a star
•Phillips: California dreamin’
•Rodgers: Climb every mountain
“hist whist” was all I could find on Nightmares and that’s more in the Halloween category.
Hope that helps!
