Lamentations (A5) [Paperback]

Robert White , Sally Dunkley


Available from these sellers.



Book Description

January 2009 Musica Dei Donum
for SSATB unaccompanied While perhaps Tallis and Byrd's Lamentations are better known, Robert White's Lamentations reflects a uniquely bleak and austere vision and is surely one of the composer's finest works. David Wulstan writes: 'This grief-stricken music is spellbinding.' Set for five voices, the melancholy sound moves between expressive contrapuntal writing and block chords, offering some remarkably bold harmonic shifts and revealing an exceptional depth of emotion. In keeping with the high standards of the previous Musica Dei Donum editions, this edition has a running translation atop each system to facilitate performance. White's Lamentations is well suited for any good church choir or amateur or college chorus in a concert setting.

Product Description

Review

The White Lamentations are a wonderful addition to the ranks of the in-print ... The voicing of this piece makes it a bit more convenient to modern choirs than Tallis's ravishing (and better-known) original ATTBB exercise in this genre, and this edition renders the piece more accessible than Byrd's early setting ... For the choir looking for something new (well, old) and different fro a Lent or Holy Week service or concert, this pieces is a great possibility. The Journal of the Association of Anglican Musicisn (US), May 2009
