Product details

That Time of Year is an a cappella setting of one of Shakespeare's most poignant sonnets (No.73) for soprano, alto, tenor, baritone and bass soloists. The frequently subdued dynamics and wide vocal range require a firm degree of control. The soprano line is particularly demanding, because of its high, but often very quiet notes. The overall mood is one of gentle melancholy - sometimes almost sombre in tone - influenced by the weight of the three male voices (against the two female lines), and this is frequently matched by the archaic-sounding harmonies. The middle section comprises a set group of phrases from which the singers are free to choose, but all are calculated to sound well together.
