Choral collection French Choral Music

Description

The Choral Collection French Choral Music is a real treasure trove for choirs to explore music from France. The collection contains 45 sacred compositions for mostly four-part mixed choir, all of which were composed in France. In compiling the collection the editor Denis Rouger, Professor of Choral Conducting at the Musikhochschule Stuttgart, has drawn on his extensive experience as Music Director at Notre-Dame and Sainte-Madeleine in Paris, as well as on his work with many professional and amateur ensembles in Germany and France.The result is an extremely varied choral collection with works from the Renaissance to the present day.

In addition to well-known works by Marc-Antoine Charpentier, Gabriel Fauré, and Camille Saint-Saëns, the collection includes first editions of previously largely unknown works by composers such as Adolphe Adam and Charles-Marie Widor. The choral director’s volume includes a CD with recordings of selected works, sung by the figure humaine chamber choir conducted by the editor, which will help with learning and rehearsing the repertoire. Separate editions are also available.

Most of the pieces have texts from the Latin liturgy which are also familiar in other countries. Added translations into German, English and French help to understand the original singing texts.

Reviews

Wer bisher meinte, gute Chormusik komme, neben dem deutschsprachigen Raum, vor allem aus England, Schweden oder den baltischen Staaten, muss – nach dem Erscheinen dieses Chorbuchs – Frankreich mit einem dicken Ausrufungszeichen hinzufügen! Diese neue Sammlung macht sicher jedem Chor nachhaltig Freude.
Markus Karas, Musik & Kirche, No. 1.2019

 

Die Auswahl sowie die durchweg hohe Qualität der Bearbeitungen in Verbindung mit den vielen praktischen Hilfen des Verlags machen dieses Chorbuch zu einem empfehlenswerten Nachschlagewerk und zu einem Must-have für ambitionierte ChordirigentInnen.
Tristan Meister, Chorzeit, 11.2018

 

... eine wahre Fundgrube ... Zusammengestellt wurde das Chorbuch von Denis Rouger ..., , wobei stets im Blick gehalten wurde, dass auch Laienchöre eine Vielzahl von Stücken gut aufführen können... Sehr zu empfehlen!
