Passion Music

Scored for: Female gospel soloist, SATB & jazz ensemble
Duration: 40 mins
Level: Moderately difficult

 

 

 

Other Info:  Passion Music continues the fusion of jazz and choral music so successfully blended in Will Todd’s Mass in Blue. The structure highlights different points in the Passion story, beginning with a new setting of Greater Love Has No Man and including an evocative Stabat Mater, a movement focusing on the seven last words of Christ, and a setting of Were you there when they crucified my Lord?. While some sections are reflective, Todd also makes full use of his understanding of energetic jazz and gospel. The vocal soloist is given plenty of expressive freedom, singing both with the choir and independently to achieve the characteristic jazz-soul style. The seven-piece jazz accompaniment, which is presented in the vocal score as a piano reduction for rehearsal only, completes the ensemble.

The movements Stabat Mater and My Love Has Died For Me are available as separates published by OUP.

Hear Will Todd giving a presentation introducing Passion Music.

The full score and set of parts for the jazz accompaniment published by OUP are available for sale and hire.

A complete backing track and individual rehearsal tracks for the vocal parts are also available to download here 

Orchestration: pno, bass, drum kit, sax (sop/alto – 1 player), tpt, tbn, timp/perc

Requiem (from Songs of Peace)

Scored for: SATB & piano
Level: Medium
Duration: 4 mins

Other Info: A setting of the Latin text from the Roman Missal, Requiem is the opening movement of a larger work entitled Songs of Peace, which was written in memory of Iris Todd. The text is very powerful and personal in different ways to different people, and it should therefore be a leading element of the performance of this piece. True piano singing should help create a better contrast with the louder sections and help with the dynamic shape in general, of which there is plenty to observe. A gentle rubato can also be applied in places to really enjoy the harmonies and bring across the meaning of the text.

Grant them eternal rest, O Lord: and let perpetual light shine upon them.

from The Roman Missal

Missae Defunctorum (Mass of the Dead)

Requiem from Songs of Peace is published by Boosey & Hawkes and is available as a printed separate. Songs Of Peace is availalble in printed and digital downloadable format.
