23.Hodie Christus Natus Est NEW!

Agneta Sköld

The Hjo Church Youth Choir, Sweden; Mats Bertilsson, conductor
This bright and joyous work by a well known Swedish composer can be performed with or without the optional liturgical chant in the beginning. It is a great choice for a jubilant Christmas concert opener.

HL08501831 SSAA divisi Chorus, a cappella

Duration: Approx. 3:00

24. Prayers of Kierkegaard NEW!

Michael Cox

Men's Chorus from Southwestern Seminary in Fort Worth, TX; Michael Cox, conductor
For the mature male choir, this stunning, chant-like setting consists of three different prayers revealing the full depth of the Kierkegaard text. Although not vocally difficult, the quality of the interpretation lies in the natural flow and meaning of this powerful text.

HL08501811 TTBB Chorus, a cappella

Duration: Approx. 4:00

25. Resonet in Laudibus/ Sing Out, Dear Children NEW!

Michael Praetorius/ Edited by William Braun

VocalEssence Ensemble Singers; Philip Brunelle, conductor
A Baroque gem and early master work (1621), in modern notation for today's choirs. Fit the performance to your re-sources: Sing in English, German or Latin; instruments may replace voices; strings may be added. However performed, this great music brings a most rewarding expe-rience.

HL08501807 SSAATB Chorus, with Continuo & Optional Strings
HL08501808 Full Score & String Parts

Duration: Approx. 4:00

26. Sanctus NEW!

Jan Sandström

Erik Westberg Vocal Ensemble; Erik Westberg, conductor
Free meter, contained ranges, and sensible repetition make this a joy to learn and perform. A simple, gentle setting of the tra-ditional Latin lyric relies on contemporary harmonies which hearken back to early re-ligious music. Works well for both worship and concert.

HL08501364 SATB, unaccompanied.

Duration: Approx. 5:00

27. The Ground NEW!

Ola Gjeilo

ASU Schola Cantorum; Kira Rugen, conductor
This luscious setting of the Latin text, was an immediate favor-ite with numerous choirs! Based on a chorale motif from the last movement of his Sunrise Mass, the composer has developed the beautiful melody into a free-standing anthem.

HL08501774 SATB Chorus divisi, Piano
HL08501796 Optional String Quartet or Ensemble

Duration: Approx. 3:30
