Rehearsal Recordings

Information

By Josquin des Prez

Pronunciation guide here

Translation:
The cricket is a good singer
He can sing very long
He sings all the time.
But he isn't like the other birds.
If they've sung a little bit
They go somewhere else
The cricket remains where he is
When the heat is very fierce
Then he sings only for love.

Statements for Equal Voices

Rehearsal Recordings

By Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen

Translation (and will actually be sung in English with this text):
Morning a face a coast an eye a haze and jump.
It is and it is enough and it is good enough as it is.
It is it an it is everything and everything is as it should be.
I make statements and that is all.

Mit Lieb bin ich umfangen

Rehearsal Recordings

Information

By Johann Steuerlein

Translation:
I’m overcome with love
My sweetheart
My desire stands for you
It could or would be
Could I earn your favour
If I came with a greater need
I would rather die
And wish that upon myself.
 
How could I leave you
It would cost me my life
I know by any count
That I cannot leave you
I have given myself to you
Continuously
Meanwhile I still have a life
Thankfully not departed from you
