JOIN A BRAND-NEW CHRISTMAS CONSORTIUM!
For: SATB Choirs
Deadline to Join: July 15, 2020
Scores to be Released: August 29, 2020
Instrumentation: SATB Choir (minimal divisi)
Description: For this holiday-themed consortium, I will be arranging In the Bleak Midwinter for SATB Choir, mashed up with motives, melodies, and harmonies from Lo, How A Rose E’er Blooming.
This will be the third piece in my ChristMashUp series, which takes two beloved carols and combines them. My 1st piece in this series is What Child Is This, which is a mash-up with Carol of the Bells. The 2nd piece in this series is Joy to the World, which is an uptempo mash-up with Deck the Halls. These two mash-ups have been very popular with choirs who are looking for fresh takes on beloved carols.
With this consortium, I will be continuing this ChristMashUp series by combining In the Bleak Midwinter with Lo, How A Rose E’er Blooming. I love the compositional puzzle of taking two pieces and combining them together. My hope is that this new piece will fit work as a stand-alone piece, and also fit into my already existing What Child Is This and Joy to the World carol suite. I would love to have you and your ensemble aboard this new ChristMashUp piece!
