Stephen Harrap: Ave Verum Corpus: Mixed Choir

Vocal Score | Sheet Music & Songbooks
Instrumentation Mixed Choir
Composer Stephen Harrap
Publisher Oxford University Press
Harrap's inventive and dramatic setting of the well-known Eucharist hymn text provides a contemporary alternative to more familiar versions by Byrd, Mozart, and Elgar. In five unaccompanied and often interweaving parts, with meandering chromatic harmonies, Ave verum corpus is both challenging and rewarding to sing. The motet's striking scalic passages, effective word painting and overall contrast to the other well-known settings will be welcomed by singers and listeners alike. Particularly suitable for Holy Communion and the Feast of Corpus Christi.
