A Seasonal Madrigal by Sally K. Albrecht. Choir Secular. 3-Part Mixed Choir (SAB). Choral Octavo. Choral Designs. Christmas; Madrigal; Winter. Choral Octavo. 12 pages. Published by Alfred Music Publishing (AP.21768).
This has got to be one of Sally's most ingenious compositions. It's an original madrigal (with all of the solid choral harmonies, and festive fa-la-la's associated with Renaissance classics) that unfolds into the traditional chorus of The Holly and the Ivy, returns to the original madrigal, beautifully combines the two themes, and finishes with a spirited refrain of We Wish You a Merry Christmas. Listen closely, there may even be some Deck the Hall woven into the multi-layered texture. Joyous a cappella singing for SATB and 3-part choirs (with optional baritone), or with a supportive piano accompaniment in the 2-part edition.
Location: from Silver Spring, MD
