Sanctus (Classics for Children Series). Arranged by Jill Gallina. For Choral (2-part). Shawnee Press. Choral. 8 pages. Shawnee Press #E0523. Published by Shawnee Press (HL.35018873).
The traditional Latin text has been set in a contemporary arrangement by Jill Gallina. The harmonies are not difficult, with dissonances present every so often. At some point throughout the piece, each part becomes the independent focus and when all parts sing together, Jill has created a sound that is full and lush. Because of the multiple voicings, Sanctus makes a lovely choice for many age levels and choral situations. Full piano accompaniment tracks available separately on Piano Trax 2004 (CD0218).
