SECULAR CHORAL MUSIC

While most of my choral music is of the sacred variety, I hope to eventually start producing a body of secular choral music

as well. But so far the only works in that medium that I have available are the SATB version of my song cycle 

In The Shadow of a Mountain, and a women's chorus from my 1985 musical The Treasure of Cathay.

The song cycle recordings are VST- generated. Virtual Studio Technology actually creates quite good substitutes for live recordings...except of course the VST choir can only sing "ooh" or "aah," not the actual words.


The J. W. Pepper link (ORDER MUSIC) for each publication includes a preview of the entire composition. When you open the preview, the recording will play automatically and you can follow the words while you listen to the recording. The recordings can also be heard at the Sheet Music Plus link (DOWNLOAD MUSIC) and directly from this page.     

A full-length preview and recording can also be seen/heard at the Score Exchange link at the

bottom of each description.

Women's Voices (with optional hand percussion) and Piano | Words by Nancy Grobe
 

My 1985 musical, The Treasure of Cathay, based on the 1921 novella Messer Marco Polo by Irish-American author Donn Byrne, is a fictional story about Marco Polo and his romance with the daughter of Kublai Khan. This song for women's voices (with optional hand percussion), is from a scene in the Central Asian desert, where the Polo caravan has encountered a group of bandits and their women, who perform this song/dance.
