Overview over the vocal music
I have written many pieces for small parish choirs with limited forces. These choirs often need music for three parts (with only one male part) that is both easy to learn and interesting to sing. If this kind of music fits your needs, I would suggest the following pieces for a start:
- Mass in E-Major, a mass setting in an early classical style with organ accompaniment
- Missa tribus vocibus, a simple a capella mass setting
- Aaronc blessing, a capella and very easy, yet effective
- Mass in the international language, my most beautiful mass setting, which is even for only two voices with arbitrary tessitura
For a complete list of all three part pieces see the Index by voice number.
There are also some pieces of higher difficulty that are more appropriate for experienced choirs. From my own works, I would recommend
- English Magnificat, a five part setting with word painting in the polyphonic style of the eraly baroque
- Viderunt omnes, a five part Christmas motet with subtle musical interpretations of the text
- Missa Salve Regina, an elaborate composition for three mixed parts in a 16th century style
- Ubi caritas, a polyphonic setting based on the gregorian chant
- Mandatum-Antiphones, set to four parts
- Ulenberg psalms, motet like settings for various voice combinations
- Kyrie, Sanctus and Agnus Dei for three part women's choir and harp in a romantic style somewhere between Mendelssohn and Rheinberger
- A Pentatonic Kyrie, one of my rare pieces that actually is somewhat "modern"
Even for situations, when there are with only two singers very limited forces available, you can find here some appropriate pieces, e.g.
And with the Mass in the international language, there is even a complete mass setting that can be sung with two solo voices.
