Re: [KWChoir] Pennsic Choir for 2009

It's an interesting idea, but this song appears to be from the Sacred Harp shape note tradition, which is 18th - 19th century American in origin. The Known World Choir does medieval and renaissance music, so I'm afraid this piece won't fit in our time period. But I hope that won't stop you from singing with us, or from suggesting other pieces.Thanks!

Orazio Vecchi: Mentre mia stella (6 parts: SSA T(or A) T(or A) B )
Stella Splendens from Llibre Vermell
Wie schön leuchtet der Morgenstern (How Brightly Beams the Morning Star) composed by Philipp Nicolai, with a big fancy arrangement by Michael Praetorius,
Caligo terrae scinditur/Virgo Maria, filia/Tenor an Anon. 14th cen. English Petronian motet (Oxford Anthology of Music: Medieval Music)
Guillame Dufay: Cunditor alme siderum
F. Pilkington: Thanks Gentle Moon
(and from the Oxford Book of Italian Madrigals:)
Monteverdi: Ecco mormorar l'onde (1590) SSATB (about the dawn...)
Marenzio: Che fa oggi il mio sole (1580) SSATB (What doth today my sun..)
That's what I've got at the moment. Sounds like fun; I hope I can be there!

Greetings Known World Singers!
After a bit of brainstorming, we have a theme for next Pennsic: Astronomy!
Great suggestions! Thank so much. And I'd love to have as much of your family singing with us as are willing. :-)
