Alleluia

By Randall Thompson

https://www.sheetmusicplus.com/title/alleluia-sheet-music/691077?id=81535

SATB chorus unaccompanied - Late Intermediate
Composed by Randall Thompson (1899-1984). Easter, 20th Century. Octavo. Published by E.C. Schirmer Publishing (EC.1786).

Item Number: EC.1786

ISBN 600313417863.

In honor of the 75th anniversary, ECS Publishing is proud to present this newly transcribed edition of "Alleluia." Perhaps one of the most often performed American choral works, millions of copies have sold since its composition in 1940 for the opening exercises of Tanglewood (the summer home of the Boston Symphony). Seventy-five years later, the continued popularity of this work attests to its endurance. This exciting new transcription also includes introductory notes compiled by Carl Schmidt, such as the following: "Conceived at one of the busiest and most stressful periods in his life, and at a time of great international turmoil, Thompson found time and inspiration in only seventy-eight bars of music and two words- Alleluia, Amen- to create one of the most cherished and frequently performed pieces of a cappella vocal music ever written. Sung and recorded around the world by singers of all ages, Alleluia richly deserves its lofty place in the pantheon of choral masterpieces.".

    Thompson's "Alleluia" stirs my soul every time I perform or hear it performed. I'm not a "religious" person but this piece of music is as close to "heaven" as I hope to come. I began singing in choruses in 1945 at the age of 15 and am still...

    singing. The Thompson "Alleluia" and the Wilhousky arrangement of the "Battle Hymn of the Republic" remain my favorites.

    This piece truly can be one of the most beautiful songs written, and it brings tears to my eyes and shivers up my spine every time I sing it or hear it sung.
