The beautiful soprano solo soars over the SATB voices and organ accompaniment in 'Christ, my Beloved' and 'Jesus, my Leman', while the unaccompanied choir take centre stage for 'Miserere, my Maker' and 'Away vain world'.

St Matthew Passion (Sheet music, Vocal score): Matthew Owens St Matthew Passion (Sheet music, Vocal score)
Matthew Owens
R80 Discovery Miles 800 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

for soloists, SATB, and organ Written for the Choir of Wells Cathedral, of which Matthew Owens is Organist and Master of the Choristers, this setting of the St Matthew Passion is ideally suited to liturgical performance during Holy Week. The principal role of the Evangelist is taken by a baritone soloist, who narrates the story of Christ's trial and Crucifixion in unaccompanied chant. The other, smaller, solo roles of Judas (tenor), Pilate (tenor), Jesus (bass), and Pilate's wife (alto) continue in the same vein, with four-part choral interspersions from the crowds, soldiers, and priests providing a contrast in texture. The hymn 'When I survey the wondrous cross', set to the Rockingham hymn tune, appears twice throughout the work, and the congregation are encouraged to join in on both occasions. The simple organ part supports the voices for the hymn, and may also optionally double the choir during the narrative.

This delicate, spring-like poem, by poet Kevin Crossley-Holland, is an affectionate salutation to a newborn babe. The poet tells that the parents couldn't decide on a name for their baby, and that instead of imposing an inappropriate name on her, they will welcome her into the garden of the world and wait for her to 'declare' herself. After a hushed introduction of whispered welcomes, the voices burst into a dance-like song in celebration of the new arrival's homecoming.

The perfect gift for fans of Florence + the Machine A beautifully illustrated collection of lyrics and never-before-seen poetry and sketches from Florence Welch Songs can be incredibly prophetic, like subconscious warnings or messages to myself, but I often don't know what I'm trying to say till years later. Or a prediction comes true and I couldn't do anything to stop it, so it seems like a kind of useless magic. 'An elegant collaged scrapbook' Observer 'A treasure . . . beautiful. Generous in its honesty, by the end you feel as though you have climbed into the colourful, and sometimes tortured, world of a passionate artist' iNews

The choral parts are largely homophonic, except for an effective unaccompanied fugal central section, and optional high soprano notes are included towards the end for added dramatic effect. The piano part makes full use of the instrument's range and features vibrant scalic and arpeggiated flourishes, tremolos, and rhythmic, accented chords.

Passion Music (Sheet music, Score and parts): Will Todd Passion Music (Sheet music, Score and parts)
Will Todd
R1,099 Discovery Miles 10 990 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Passion Music continues the fusion of jazz and choral music so successfully blended in Will Todd's Mass in Blue. The structure highlights different points in the Passion story, beginning with a new setting of 'Greater love has no man' and including an evocative Stabat Mater, a movement focusing on the seven last words of Christ, and a setting of 'Were you there when they crucified my Lord?'. While some sections are reflective, Todd also makes full use of his understanding of energetic jazz and gospel. The vocal soloist is given plenty of expressive freedom, singing both with the choir and independently to achieve the characteristic jazz-soul style. The seven-piece jazz accompaniment, which is presented in the vocal score as a piano reduction for rehearsal only, completes the ensemble. The vocal score is available on sale and hire. A complete backing track and individual rehearsal tracks for the vocal parts are also available to download.

Powerful choral lines and jubilant organ flourishes marry perfectly with the well-known text to result in a truly laudatory work.
