I am looking for fast, rhythmic pieces for my fall concert “Forces of Nature.” Pieces about wind, light, water, storms, sun, moon, etc. would fit. As examples, some of the pieces already selected include “Cloudburst,” “Famine Song,” “Mata del Anima Sola,” and “Heavenly Light.”
I have all the slow, lyric pieces I can use. I need pieces to wake the audience back up! I particularly need a good opener. Both accompanied or a cappella suggestions for a university concert choir or chamber group are welcome..August 11, 2019 at 11:36 pm #596012Michael A. GrayParticipant
Steve Hopkins is looking for a up-tempo piece on “Forces of nature” …might take a look at:
•Bobrowitz: Creation (a rock cantata)
•Byrd: Sing joyfully
•Handel: For who is God (fm Chandos #10)
•Haydn: Die Himmel erzahlen die Ehre Gottes (fm “Die Schöpfung”)
•Jeune: Revecy venir du printans
•Marenzio: Già torna
•Monteverdi: Ecco mormorar l’onde
•Morley: You black bright stars
•Purcell: Thus nature rejoicing (fm “Come ye sons of art”)
•Schubert: Gott im ungewitter
•Wilbye: Happy streams
While you are at it, please take a look at my own works in http://www.graymichael.com
There, you will find free downloads of pdf scores – “When I consider everything that grows” (fm “Book of Sonnets” for SABpn) might be what you are looking for. And, of course, “Didn’t it rain” (SATBpn) where I had a lot of fun creating a downpour:
Hope that helps!
