CURTIS SCHWEITZER

 

I am recently graduated from Biola University with a Bachelors in Music (Theory/Composition). I went to grad school for about a semester and found the experience unsatisfying. I now teach private theory, piano, voice, and sight singing lessons in Colorado Springs, and am actively developing my career as a film composer through association with New Renaissance Pictures.

O MAGNUM MYSTERIUM

OCCS02

 

Simple usage of the "Mysterium" text that attempts to evoke wonder through voicing and suspensions. I love this text; how can you not shiver at the phrase "O Magnum Mysterium: O Great Mystery"? I certainly do.

                              ANDREW SUTHERLAND

 

I have been organist and choirmaster at St Michaels Parish Church, Linlithgow, Scotland since 1989. Amazing job - we have a wonderful reconditioned Willis organ and a fantastic choir, as well as one of the most lively congregations and ministries in Scotland. And that is where a lot of my music is produced for - organ pieces and short anthems to be used between readings. It's great to be able to produce music for use! I hope you can use some of the music here or maybe you can think of setting the texts differently. Please email me if you do, it would be good to get feedback.

He lives in the United Kingdom.

He has created some new "classic sounding" hymn tune settings which, while original, sound as if we have been singing them for years. They are extremely comfortable on our ears and  are accessible to most church choirs.

                                DR PHILIP THICKNES

He resides in Northumberland, UK

His music is generally not too difficult to perform (though some pieces are a little challenging) and aims to be accessible to the listener. His guiding principle is to write (or arrange) a good melody and let it be heard through the harmony. An early influence on his style has been Gregorian chant: more recent ones renaissance and mediaeval choral music.

Please inform him by e-mail if you intend to perform any of the pieces.

HODIE CHRISTUS NATUS EST

OCPT01


A bright, cheerful Christmas motet suitable for an experienced group of singers (minimum 8 voices). Words are traditional Latin but easily understood (e.g. angels, archangels etc) and will be familiar to many from renaissance settings of the same text, such as Bassano's. The mood varies from heraldic to reverent, from joyful to dancing.
