Favorite Choral Music Piece...?

I was just wondering what any of you Choral singers' favorite pieces are...

two of my favorites are A Jubilant Song by Dello Joio and Psalm 43 by Mendellson

I recently sang Schubert's Mass in Eb, which has lots of great moments, but lots of boring stuff too...

Overall, my favorite piece i have sung is Io Son Le Primavera, but I've forgotten who wrote it.

Where to start? I love choral music.. I think one of my favourite piece would have to be Handel's Messiah. Totally amazing. I also enjoy Mendelson's Elijah. Both great pieces.

Peace and love,
Rhonda.

I have nothing but respect for that piece(my choir is doing it this winter...yaay...i think...), but i'm not a fan of the huge malismas all over the place...its the style, i know...but for a tenor whose voice has not developed, they are not fun.

That is the fun of the entire piece! I am singing this year as well... for the second year in a row. I love it so much! I sing alto so I have all kinds of fun parts..

Peace and love,
Rhonda.

For a not quite entirely developed tenor, the runs are frustrating because they go over my break 5 times a measure at 132 bpm.

Talking none...:P

hey....without question my favourite is an arrangement of "the sound of silence" sung in four part harmony...with fluctuating dynamics it's absolutely amazing...our house choirs were singing it at the School House Competitions...it sounds amazing with the piano accompaniment

The Messiah and Rutter's Distant Land are the two I really liked of all the songs we've sung so far this year. A song that killed was You Raise Me Up. Hearing our 2nd basses trying to hit the G flat above middle C was pretty sad.

Wow what a good question. We are singing the Durufle Requiem for the second time in Chamber Singers this year...and I would have to say its my favourite. It was written in the 1930s I believe, but is based on Gregorian Chant. It is for choir, organ, and orchestra.

We also do a lot of songs by John Rutter. He is an English composer who writes very well, its good to blend on.

I also like things by Morton Lauridson.

I'm more a fan of sweeping, blended, romantic style choral music than Oratorio. It is tiring to me.
