        Voicing: Mixed Voices

        Title Description Composer Voicing

        Two Kyries From The Winds Of Heaven (SATB)

        #MM2006

        These two songs are unusual, fresh and vivid. They resonate with ideas drawn from several religious philosophies. The composer sanctions performances within the context of Christian worship as well as any philosophic tradition which values the soul. Includes harmonic overtone singing.

        The individual parts are very simple and a large and sonorous ensemble is preferred. Mixed voices a cappella.

        Recording from”Honour the Earth” CD published by Sarah Hopkins
        Performed by Canticum conducted by Emily Cox

        Until I Saw

        #MM0402

        A slow meditative work. A beautiful imaginative piece that stands among the best.

        Versa est in Luctum

        #MM2034a

        Number one of Twist’s “Victoria Triptych”. My harp is tuned for lamentation, and my flute to the voice of those who weep. Spare me, O Lord, for my days are as nothing (trans. Miguel Iglesias)

        Available in the set of Three Motets after Victoria, linked here – not available singly.

        Voice Of The River

        #MM2041

        Orlovich has a keen ear for the way different texts resonate with each other. This piece uses the traditional Latin text Dulcis Jesu Memoria and Victor Carrell’s Voice of the River which draws on a series of images which address “love” as it is found in some of its myriad manifestations. Commissioned by Graeme Morton’s St Peters Chorale and suitable for a good high school or college choir. It could also be used in church situations as an anthem.

        Wake Up!

        #MM2610

        Wake Up! is a rhythmic and energetic piece that re-imagines the choir ensemble as a contemporary band. Amongst the global frenzy of contemporary culture, hip-hop and urban music has become the ‘folk music’ that resonates strongly with our current generation. This piece captures the vibrancy of those rhythms and melodies through the imitation of driving hip-hop beats and vociferous rap vocal.

         

        Waltzing Matilda

        #MM0404

        A masterly and unique arrangement of Australia’s favourite song.

        We Welcome Summer

        #MM0410

        A wonderful piece which welcomes “the glorious blessing of light” asking us to “pour out our darkness into the glorious forgiving light”. Would suit a good college or church choir. It could also be used as an Epiphany anthem with a difference, since Epiphany appears in the middle of summer in the Southern Hemisphere.
