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

Sensation: published for the first time

It has only recently become known that in his youth, Giacomo Puccini composed a large number of organ works, which are mainly very short. A selection of twelve pieces from this repertoire is published here for the first time. This invites the discovery of a previously-unknown facet in the work of this composer, known above all for his operas. More

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.

Rossini: Petite Messe solennelle

155 years ago Rossini started composing his second large-scale work in the sphere of church music: the Petite Messe solennelle. The typically Rossinian rhythms and capricious drama, entirely in operatic style, offer a choir the chance to show off its full range of abilities – provided it has mastered the challenges. Right on time for the Rossini anniversary 2018 we offer various practice aids for the Petite Messe solennelle, e.g. our practice CD series Carus Choir Coach. More
