Matona mia cara is a warm-blooded, promising and somewhat flat soldier song. Sometimes it is wrongly thought that this is a Maria song, but in reality it is about a soldier trying to seduce a beautiful lady.
Raymond Schroyens wrote a charming song on a text by the Scottish poet Robert Burns (1759 - 1796). The soft melody roams through all voices. Meanwhile, My love is widely known among choirs at home and abroad.
O Salutaris Hostia is a simple but very beautiful four-part work that appeared with the Koor&Stem magazine Stemband in September 2011.
Repleatur os meum is a fresh choral work on psalm texts for two equal voices. It was written in 1969 and used in 1970 for the European Music Festival for Young People in Pelt (EMJ) in the Wimpel series. Repleatur os meum is a choir song that can be enjoyed by both the choir and the public.
Jan Van der Roost's Rorate Coeli was first published in 2009. It's an excellent work of easy to moderate difficulty.
This mass has no exact composition date and originated somewhere between 1450 and 1480.
Spring by Noah Thys is an excerpt from Seasonal Snapshots: Japanese Haiku Cycle for mixed choir SAATBB on English translations of haikus by Japanese poets throughout history. The complete cycle consists of 5 parts; in addition to the seasons, the night is also sung about. You can already get to know the third part on Koorklank.
With Tegen het zwijgen,Hans Helsen (born 1989) completely contradicts the expression ‘Speech is silver, silence is golden’. The text of Jos Stroobants conveys new truths: ‘Schrijf ...dat kilte ons slechts haalt en ons vermaalt tot niets wanneer we zwijgen.’ (Write ... so that the cold only gets us and grinds us to nothing when we are silent). As such, Helsen gets his female choir to sing almost continuously, with the exception of a few accurately placed resting moments. An evolving recurring motif through the various voices gives structure and credibility to composition and text content. Beautiful and interesting composition for women's choir.
Michaël Vancraeynest (°1976) wrote Tell the Lord how thankful you are for the colloquium for liturgical music that took place in Vaalbeek in August 2016. Vancraeynest's work is a setting of Psalm 118 for two equal voices and piano. The psalm opens in unison with a cheerful melody, which is then repeated with the addition of a counter voice. The middle section changes in text and key. Smooth composition for equal voices choirs who are looking for liturgical repertoire.
Simple two-part piece with organ that can be performed solo or with a choir.
