  • University Interscholastic League adds works from E. C. Schirmer & Galaxy Music

    Two works from the E. C. Schirmer Catalog were added to the University Interscholastic League (UIL) Prescribed Music List.

    The Music Program of the UIL is designed to support and enrich the teaching of music as an integral component of the public school curriculum in the state of Texas. Each year approximately one half million middle school, junior high and high school students reap the benefits of participation in the ten UIL music events.

    New Additions:

    HushabyHushaby by Ellen Gilson Voth, GMC #1.3380

    SATB Chorus (divisi) unaccompanied

    "This arrangement presents the challenge of singing a familiar lullaby with freshness and a tender sound quality that is well supported. Take great care in the opening to energize the E natural pedal point. The middle section (mm. 22–52) is intended to be dream-like, with cascading images of horses that are moving quickly then gradually slowing their pace. The ritardando is built in; singers should focus on being absolutely rhythmic with the 8th-note pulse. The last page is the place to be luxurious with time, and to enjoy the final hum fading into silence." -Ellen Gilson Voth


    AlleluiaAlleluia (Orchestra Version) by Randall Thompson, arr. Randol Alan Bass, ECS #8393

    String Orchestra and optional Suspended Cymbal

    This arrangement by Randol Bass of the seminal unaccompanied choral work Alleluia by Randall Thompson (Catalog No. 1786) was commissioned by the publisher in honor of the 75th anniversary year of its publication. Complete performance set includes: 1 score, strings 6-5-4-3-2.
