For Mixed Voices
David has been writing compositions and arrangements for his SATB choirs for more than fifty years. His approach to planning has often been Need it? Can't find it? Write it!
These pieces are some of his top selections. Directors will find them appealing when programming sacred SATB choral music either accompanied or a cappella. The keyboard parts were played by David's wife, Christine Larson Seitz, whether with his Camerata choirs, or Camerata Press Chorale, or for the Chancel Choir of First United Methodist Church of Mishawaka, Indiana, where David and Christine served for decades.
Guests will find original works as well as arrangements of folk hymns, classic hymns, and spirituals. Texts on a wide variety of themes can easily be surveyed since scores include all the pages.
Please view and listen. For some selections, Sibelius Sounds provides a realistic alternative to live recordings.
A note regarding assigning levels
Assigning objective values to level of difficulty in music can be challenging. I have chosen to use a numerical scale of one (least difficult) to five (most). These are derived from my experiences with radio, college, church, community, and professional choirs.
Even after fifty years, the elusiveness of objectivity in arriving at useful averages for level remains. Consideration has been given to a cappella, further divisions of SATB, key changes, polyphony, etc. Cameratapress.com guests will undoubtedly draw their own conclusions.
