Hey string players and teachers,are you looking for something different to program or teach your students? Thiscollection of pieces, suitable for beginning and experienced ensembles, may bewhat you’re looking for.

For the choral musician, the acapella motets of the late Medieval and Renaissance periods, somewell-known and others less so, comprise some of the richest and most beautifulworks of choral literature. Unless otherwise indicated, the pieces in thiscollection are all set for a standard string quartet of 2 violins, viola, andcello, instruments most closely able to mimic the inflections of the humanvoice. The intent of these arrangements is to enable the string musician toexperience a genre perhaps less familiar, from the relatively simple yetsublime homophonic piece, to the varying degrees of rhythmic complexity ofpolyphonic works and their juxtaposed interplay of duple and triple rhythmicfigures. With the purchase of this collection, permission is granted tophotocopy parts as needed. Vocal breath marks (‘) above the staff are meant toserve as guides in phrasing. In keeping with the period, no dynamics areindicated, and tempo markings and slurs are only suggestions. The performer isfree to interpret as desired.

The audioexample is of the first several pieces in the collection.
