I’m looking for recommendations of short, secular song cycles suitable for 2 (very) amateur choirs from Sweden and Scotland who regularly join together to sing.
Fairly simple 4 part arrangements with piano accompaniment?
Anyone have any ideas?
Not exactly baby-simple but I’ve had a lot of success with the following:
Bartok: Styry Slovenske narodne piesnie (Four Slavic folksongs)
Brahms: 4 Zigeunerlieder (Four Gypsy Songs) Op. 112, nos. 3-6
Haydn: Mehrstimmige Gesange (Reihe XXX)
Persichetti: Cummings Choruses Op. 33 & 98
Hope that helps!
