Farrenc's Nonet, Op. 38 was originally written for flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, horn, violin, viola, cello and bass. The composer herself subsequently arranged the for string quintet. This monumental work is composed in a romantic style with prominent melodies and clear-cut forms.
Written ca. 1151, the Ordo Virtutum is a powerful and moving music drama. The Ordo combines music, drama and ritual and chronicles the downfall of everyman/everywoman whose imperfection is part of our humanity. Optional stage directions are provided in this edition.
The songs in this collection were chosen to illustrate the various facets of vocal color and mood created by this unique composer. They are suitable for performance by either medium or high voice.
