The people have spoken and we now have our set-list for Monday’s Birthday Bonanza.
I must admit to some surprise at a couple of the selections, but at least Peñalosa didn’t make it through. (Poor Peñalosa; his Ave verum has in fact made it on to tonight’s Counterpint runners-up set-list.)
Many thanks to all of you who took the time to vote; here now are the fruits of your labours:
Byrd: O sacrum convivium
Clemens non Papa: Ego flos campi
Gesualdo: Sancti spritus, Domine*
Guerrero: Alma redemptoris mater
Morales: Regina caeli a 4
Morley: I love alas I love thee
Palestrina: Laudate Dominum a 8
Palestrina: Pueri Hebraeorum
Victoria: O magnum mysterium
Zieleński: Vox in Rama
There’ll be the usual warm-up Bach chorales as well, so all in all it should be a great evening.
If you’ve signed up then you should have received an e-mail with the links to the scores. If you missed out on signing up, there’re still one or two places left at tonight’s Counterpint in the Cafe.
*The Gesualdo was tied with Croce‘s O sacrum convivium so the judges went with the work that’s likely to be more fun to sing under the influence.
