Morten Lauridsen: Nocturnes

Bog | SATB, Klaverakkompagnement

Forlag: Faber Music
Komponist: Morten Lauridsen
Format: Nodehæfter | Sangalbum

Morten Lauridsen's Nocturnes addresses aspects of the common theme of 'Night' in arrangements for accompanied SATB chorus. 

His setting of Rilke's impassioned and atmosphereic Sa nuit d'ete is rich with dense, colourful harmonies, while Soneto de la noche is quiet, serene and fold-like, reflecting the eloquence with which the poet Pablo Neruda speaks of everlasting eternal love. Sure on the shining night is a lyrical, beautiful setting of James Agee's well-loved poem. Rilke is the source of the epilogue, Voici le soir, bringing the Nocturnes to a quiet end as darkness arrives.

The Choral Programme Series is a well-esatablished programming tool for many choirs as it offers a wealth of fresh material from many eras and in many styles. Also offering great value for money as each volume in the series provides up to forty minutes of music

      The music itself is wonderful. Especially charming as it is in different languages. My choir was enthralled with it.

      Lovely music, clearly printed and laid out.
      Outer cover is thin paper - better once laminated!

      This is a lovely collection of Nocturnes. All, with the exception of "Sure On This Shining Night" could be classified as falling in to the more "Contemporary" genre, and would require Choirs of a high degree of musicality to perform them effectively. "Sure On This Shining Night" is by far my favourite piece in this collection. It has a beautiful Piano Accompaniment and the four part Harmonies are so simple but effective. The quiet ending just works perfectly. It is a pity that this piece is not available for purchase individually.
