Psalm 60 & Preces Nocturnae

for 2 Tenor solos & SSAA-SATB-TTBB chorus, a cappella

This piece is comprised of two texts: Psalm 60 (in Old Low Franconian – the language of Charlemagne) and Preces Nocturnae (Prayer at Night) written by Alcuin (b. 747). The piece starts with a medieval sounding melody sung by a tenor solo that eventually turns into a round with another tenor solo. The Psalm 60 melody is then juxtaposed with the Alcuin text sung in a chant-like style. The piece gradually expands into three choirs and eventually ends with the tenor solo singing by himself. This is a challenging but accessible piece for the larger choir.

    This beloved folk tune has been arranged with optional, muted trumpet (the timbre adds to the mood of the piece). The piano accompaniment expands the 4-part harmony of the choir to suggest more contemporary harmony with a few jazz chords. It’s not overdone, however; “Poor Wayfarin’ Stranger” is still a traditional, compelling portrait of a […]
