Danyal Dhondy's Still the Sirens was commissioned by Making Music as a choral companion piece to Fauré’s Requiem. The parts are available free to Making Music members until July 2020 in digital format.
The new work Still the Sirens is approximately 28-30 minutes long and you can now download the full score and individual parts for free. The piece is for SATB choir plus organ or orchestral forces as detailed below.
SATB (occasional divisi), solo Soprano/Mezzo, solo Baritone, plus either:
If an individual part, for example the bassoon, is marked 'A' it should be played with all the other parts marked 'A' and 'AB' but not with 'C'. If a part is marked 'B' then it should be played with all the other parts marked 'B' and 'AB'. If a part is marked 'C' such as the tubular bells, it should be played with all the other parts marked 'C'.
You can use the above scoring lists to check that you've downloaded all the correct parts.
The free digital parts are available to members for the 2018-19 and 2019-20 seasons, after which the standard hire pricing will apply. Printed copies can also be made available on request at an exclusive member rate of £30. PRS performing fees will apply as usual.
