Missa Brevis
Michael John Trotta


In response to the growing need for developmentally appropriate repertoire that facilitates the teaching of independent part-singing, Missa Brevis was composed for emerging choirs seeking concert repertoire that will help to lay a foundation for lifelong success in the choral sphere. Conservative vocal ranges, singable vocal lines and attention to the developing singer make this work a great choice for emerging choral ensembles. Whether performing it as a set or as individual movements, the work creates the opportunity to introduce new concepts such as meter, form, tonality, altered syllables, and fundamentals of good singing, while at the same time providing an introduction to larger-scale historical choral works, making this piece attractive to choirs and audiences alike. Also available for SA Voices (BL1097).
