Hinshaw Music Sacred, 2013

HMC2364 All Bells In Paradise (Rutter, SATB, organ) 1.90
We all know that John Rutter is a master with Christmas/holiday music. Our worship services and our concerts are filled with his music during the holidays. This piece holds true to form with both words and music by the master. For mixed voices with organ, the title line of the text is taken from the 15th century Corpus Christi Carol.
HMC2311 Bring A Torch, Jeanette Isabella (arr. Harmon, SATB, harp, oboe, Bb clarinet) 1.90
Composer Neil Harmon truly has a gift with carol arrangements. Here, he sets this traditional French carol for mixed voices with harp (or piano) with oboe or clarinet. The interplay between the lyrical voices and instruments is stunning!
HMC2355 Bronze Triptych (Forrest,SATB, div., piano four-hands, opt. handbells, timpani, and percussion) 2.50
The text by Charles Anthony Silvestri traces the formation of a bell: bronze, mined from earth, first formed into weapons of war, then melted down and recast as a bell to toll forvespers, and eventually pealing out in victory and joy. The accompaniment of four-hand piano with optional handbells and percussion vividly paints the metallic sounds and bellimagery of the text. The metaphor for turning from war to peace makes the piece suitable for patriotic occasions, Earth Day, World Peace Day, and others.
HMC2341 Cherokee Amazing Grace (Green, SATB, mezzo sop. & bar. solos or descant, flute (or violin) and opt. percussion) 2.00
This creative work began as an English setting of AMAZING GRACE by the composer David Huff (HMC1844). Here, composer James Green makes extensive use of the original but sets the piece to Native American Cherokee and adds flute or violin, and a host of optional hand percussion instruments. The piece would be great for the festivities of American Music Month.
HMC2328 Christiana Canticles (Rutter, SATB, organ) 2.20
John Rutter understands and reveres the Anglican choral tradition like no other.Dedicated to an American choir, this setting of the Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis is scored for mixed choir (divisi) and organ. It is quite accessible.
HMC2308 Christmastide (Daley, SATB, div., a cappella) 1.90
Written for the Maryland State Boychoir, this lovely unaccompanied motet for mixedchorus divisi has the harmonic richness and lyrical lines typical in the works of Eleanor Daley. If you are looking for a beautiful challenge for your lessons and carols or holiday concert – this is it! The poetry of Janet Lewis is exquisite.
HMC2362 Die Minnesanger(Schumann/ed.Oltman, TTBB, piano) 1.70
