ORCHESTRAL
ARRANGMENTS

As with many large projects, this started as one simple idea to make classic repertoire accessible to women’s voices with chamber orchestra.  There are now over 20 completed scores.

These arrangements are unpublished, so please contact me directly if you are interested.  I am slowly creating Orchestral MIDI Mock-Ups for each - if you see a link for OMMU - please have a listen!

  

TREBLE VOICES and CHAMBER ORCHESTRA

To render these arrangement, ideally, you might employ a chamber string orchestra as large as 16.14.12.10.6, but half the size, 8.7.6.5.3 would also be good if possible,. You may also have to decide based on your chorus numbers, and might need to go as low as (but not lower than) 5.4.3.3.1. The woodwind parts are either 1 or a2. There is no brass (except horns) and no percussion (except harp) in any of the arrangements.
