These 20 sacred songs for male choir (Tenors, Baritones. Basses), are some of theÂ many works of sacred music composed in the last 20 yearsÂ by Santino Cara.
The author has devoted most of his life to sacredÂ composition in particular addressed to the choir.
His works are highly influenced by styles ranging from theÂ Renaissance to the Baroque, and to the Classical.
For Santino Cara, every sacred composition is a prayer, aninvocation to God, his inspiration and source of
livelihood. In these songs there is the right fit toÂ understand the compositional mastery to report even the
smallest detail of the Latin text in the score.Â All texts included in the book are drawn and metricallyÂ processed musically by me personally, even throughÂ historical research specifically wanted by the Master, to
better grasp the meaning of the text.Â These songs can be sung during the Liturgy, or on festiveÂ occasions, or just for the pleasure of singing a hymn, aÂ motet, an madrigal, etc.
Are chants of medium difficulty, andressed to a chorus ofÂ male voices with first and second tenors, baritones first
and second, first and second downs.Â The score as you can certainly see, illustrates in detail the
manner of how the song should be sung.Â Many thanks to Santino Cara for giving me theÂ opportunity and honor to present although with a fewÂ lines these beautiful songs, composed with love andÂ devotion from those who love the sacred music.
