Integer Vitae

(Click the title to view and hear online)


This piece is recommended for all-male groups.  Directors are often hesitant to attempt a four-part piece with early adolescent singers; however, when four parts are available, directors are more likely to find a part that fits each individual's voice, particularly if the group contains voices from several grade levels (i.e. grades 6, 7, & 8 or 7, 8, & 9). 

If you haven't attempted four-part music with your all-male group, we encourage you to give it a try.   It will amaze you as to how the boys sound when the singing parts fit their voical ranges. 

Integer Vitae is an excellent piece for beginning choral singers because of its homophonic texture, comfortable ranges,  and easy rhythm.  There is an English text if your group isn't up to the Latin.
