Series: Boosey & Hawkes Sacred Choral Publisher: Bote & Bock Format: Softcover SATB Composer: Ursula Mamlok

The cantata for mixed choir and piano (or organ) is an early work by Ursula Mamlok, if one can call the composition of a mid-thirties so. In 1958, at the time the piece was written, the composer had just finished her studies at the Manhattan School of Music. In the following years, with studies by Stefan Wolpe and Ralph Shapey, she approached the row technique and developed the typical style that should be typical for her in the later decades. The Cantata is thus the musical testimony of a transitional period and occupies a special position, also because choir compositions are rare in Mamlok's oeuvre. However, a very attractive. The approximately 7-minute, one-movement composition is based on the 1st Psalm in English. Ritornellartig returns the word “Blessed”, harmoniously accented with quartz cords. The choir set is extremely varied and fanned up to eight voices. Again and again solos from all vocal groups emerge. Homophones contrast with broken and imitative sections, accompanied by a cappella sung. Also interesting is the instrumental voice, which not only accompanies the vocals, but also stands out individually and in changeable design.
