  • The Ring of the Nibelung

    Richard Wagner

    Product Code: CAXQS
    Paperback
    A superb new translation of the libretto to Wagner's Ring cycle 'Smiling in sorrow I sing of love' The Ring of the Nibelung, Wagner's epic cycle of four musical dramas about primal envy, cosmic conflict, the search for glory, spectacular self-sacrifice, redeeming human love and the downfall of gods, revolutionized the nature of opera and conjured up an entire mythological world. It is also one of the greatest texts ever written for the lyric stage, where words are not an adjunct to the music, but an essential part of a transformative experience. John Deathridge's superb new facing page translation of the Ring libretto conveys the pungency and vitality of Wagner's words, reflecting the work's literary power while retaining its sense and dramatic energy. Translated with an introduction and notes by John Deathridge

  • O Come, Let Us Sing Unto The Lord

    O Come, Let Us Sing Unto The Lord was written for Stephen Layton and Polyphony by Morten Lauridsen. Purchase the sheet music for unaccompanied SATB chorus. In speaking of Lauridsen in his book Choral Music in the Twentieth Century, the author Nick Strimple says of him, 'he is the only American composer in history who can be called mystic, (whose) probing, serene work contains all the elusive and indefinable ingredient which leaves the impression that all questions have been answered... From 1993 Lauridsen's music rapidly increased in international popularity, and by the centuy's end he had eclipsed Tandall Thompson as the most frequently performed American choral composer'.
