A terrific SATB setting of Samuel Barber’s popular Agnus Dei (or Lamb of God). Taken from his 1936 composition Adagio for Strings Op.11, it is among the most familiar pieces of American concert music and has graced Film and Television with it’s poignant sincerity.

It is a dignified, simple work with the repetition of a rhapsodic section that rises to a climax, the intensity gradually building and then falling away following the ‘arch’ form tradition. This is a wonderful Latin Text version of Agnus Dei and has been transcribed effectively for Full Mixed Chorus and optional Piano accompaniment.

WOODBRIDGE GB Choral singer with Woodbridge
It's the correct version and is easy to read and add conductor comments
It's a bit pricey for a few sheets of folded paper. There is not even a staple to help hold the pages together

Skipton GB
This is a choral version of Barber's famous Adagio for strings. It is not easy - long sustained lines and very high tessatura for both sopranos and altos - but very effective if well sung. This is as far as I know the only edition available.

Wonderful music
Much more difficult than I thought it would be, so is taking the choir longer to learn.

Customer Rating a good arrangement which will offer a challengs for a small choir which is always looking for something new for their expanding repertoire. can be trusted to supply a huge catalogue of choral music for all standards and abilities.

Customer Rating Although originally Barbers Serenade for Strings it lends itself very well to the words of the Agnus Dei
