Music of the Masters

These time-tested works by recognized master composers utilize variable voicing which, in most cases, are arranged in the treble clef for the two upper parts (three-part voicing) or three upper parts (four-part voicing) and the one lower part in the bass clef.  They all vary in difficulty with some being more suitable for high school age singers or older.  The four-part pieces are particularly suited for high school, college and adult choirs who have more women than men since they may be sung SSAB, dividing the women into three parts and combining the men on one part which has a nice compromise range for both tenors and basses. Others are quite within the capability of a good mid-level choir as indicated by the voicings delineated below.  The parts are limited in range and tessitura which make them suitable for groups containing changing voices.

PLEASE NOTE:  The comfortable singing tessitura for some parts in these pieces may be too low for adolescent male-treble and female-treble voices.  This occurs primarily when a part has been deemed singable by both trebles and cambiatas.  Many of the parts recommended for these two voices lie within a suitable range of both, however it is advisable to check the individual compositions when you view them online before purchasing them.  This applies to the voicings marked with an asterisk.

Many of these works are available in E-Print.
