French Choral Music

The new French Choral Collection 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 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. Separate editions are also available. More

Sensational first editions

A truly exciting find: organ music by Giacomo Puccini – almost completely forgotten until recently. Only in the recent past have around 60 manuscripts of organ compositions by Puccini been rediscovered, most recently at Torre del Lago, Puccini’s home. Now these spectacular discoveries are available to the public in scholarly editions! The volume of works for organ in the Puccini ‘Edizione Nazionale’ has just been published by Carus, and will be presented to the public by the editors on Sunday in the Teatro Municipale Valli in Reggio Emilia, Italy.

Brahms: Liebeslieder-Walzer

At first glance some of the short movements do not seem difficult, but it is a challenge to maintain the dance-like lightness of the waltzes against the considerable vocal demands.... With carus music, the choir app, you can follow the music while listening to a top-class recording on your smartphone or tablet, and easily practice your own choral part with the help of a coach.
