The Faber New Choral Works series sets out to introduce a wealth of new or recently written choral music to choirs in search of fresh repertoire. The series aims to draw in a rich diversity of living composers and will include both lighter and more challenging contemporary works, offering a thrilling array of varied styles.
In Memoriam Anne Frank was written to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Anne Frank's death in Bergen-Belsen concentration camp just six weeks before the Nazi surrender in 1945. This moving choral tribute is elegiac in mood but, like Anne's inspirational diary, also exudes warmth and gentleness.
Composed by Howard Goodall, available here is the Vocal score of his emotive and moving work In Memoriam Anne Frank, for SATB (divisi) Choir with Piano accompaniment.
