Detailed Description

Alphabet (Fuga) (No. 3 from Four Heartfelt Anthems Transient Glory Series). Composed by David Del Tredici (1937-). For Choral, Chorus (SSA A Cappella). Transient Glory. 12 pages. Boosey & Hawkes #M051474356. Published by Boosey & Hawkes (HL.48005106).

David Del Tredici writes: “My setting of the 1727 New England Primer's Alphabet might horrify its Puritan author by transforming its simple text into an exuberant tour de force. Its 26 couplets tumble upon one another in tight three-part counterpoint, testing the young performers' range and endurance alike.”.
