After performing Eric Whitacre’s Five Hebrew Love Songs last fall with my accomplished community chorus, I’d like to program a December concert that includes some works with string quartet accompaniment. Any suggestions? I am aware of Ola Gjeilo’s latest releases, but would like to add some variety of style and tempo.May 30, 2019 at 9:20 am #592127

You might take a look at Buxtehude’s “Das neugebor’ne kindelein.” Your viola player may have to play high as the work is originally scored for three violins, cello, and organ. It’s a very sweet work.
Hope that helps!

James Woodman has a marvelous 3-movement work, The Midwife’s Tale. You can separate the 3 movements, each are anthem length, so you can use them in church services too. The accompaniment can be either string quartet or organ. I’ve done it both ways. It’s a marvelous text; his rendering of a story from the Arundel manuscript, the tale of an apocryphal midwife present at the Nativity. It’s full of marvelous references to Light. Always a hit, and not cliché in the least.
