Rehearsal Videos • Sixty-Three (63) Pieces!
published 10 March 2016 by Jeff Ostrowski

682 Francisco Guerrero PICTURE ERE’S THE FINAL PART of a five-part series [01 02 03 04] whose objective is to encourage our readers to donate $5.00 per month. Below are polyphonic pieces with rehearsal videos for amateur choirs. Our ultimate goal is to provide 300+ videos, with special emphasis on easy SATB pieces.

Most donations are spent on mundane items like website repairs, but whenever possible we try to promote artists. For example, there wasn’t a decent picture of Guerrero (a devout Catholic who died in 1599AD) so we commissioned one. You can see how closely our painter matched the 1599AD version by Pacheco:

    * *  Original Portrait • FRANCISCO GUERRERO (d. 1599)

If you scroll to the very bottom, you’ll discover Kevin Allen’s setting of the “Vexilla Regis,” commissioned by Watershed and released here for the first time. His simple Refrain fits this famous Passiontide hymn nicely—and don’t miss the English translation by Fr. Fortescue, which is supremely elegant and clear.

We desperately need your help; please become a $5.00 donor.
