It doesn't have any 'notes', just speech rhythms, so actually I wouldn't have thought it terribly difficult compared to the choral writing of Wagner, Beethoven and Puccini for instance. I'd love my choir to have a shot at it. If we ever plan another a capella concert I will suggest it.

Does anyone know where one can download or buy a recording of Bob Chilcott's Christmas-Tide? I've been searching and searching the net to no avail.
THANKS!

Hello everyone,

could someone please help me out here:
Lili Boulanger's Psalm 24, Psalm 129, and "D'un matin de printemps" (last one for big orchestra)
want to become performed, so full scores are needed.
I found out 1st one is in Denmark, 2nd one in Leipzig, third one in Switzerland.
Has anyone got more information about where to find the full scores,
or maybe even has the chance to go to Leipzig and get the score?

Thank you for every piece of information.

I'm hoping one of you can help me with a little name that tune project. Here's a 30 second or so clip of a live recording of a Mass, probably late classical and in E-flat as heard on the recording. The original file is named Track01.mp3 and is 47,091 KB in length containing the entire Mass (33+ minutes). There's no information at all in the original file and I have no idea where it came from. It's very familiar but I can't place it. Any help would be appreciated.
Track01-1.mp3

Does you original file have an obvious number of movements?
It is sung in Latin? Does it have a Credo, a Sanctus etc.?
To me, your excerpt sounds very Mozartian.

It has the normal five Mass movements and is sung in Latin--it sure sounds like late Mozart or Haydn.

Mozart's Masses, Litanies and Vespers all tended to
have more than 5 movements - Kyrie, Gloria, Credo.
Sanctus, Benedictus, Agnus Dei, and Dona being the
ones used in most of his masses. Also, E flat wasn't
a key he used much in religious works. It's a puzzle!

Found it! The piece is actually in D--the Missa Solemnis by Franz Xaver Süssmayr. It was on Youtube at one time but got pulled--here's a link that will let you hear a little more of it--well worth listening to:
