Edward MacDowell (1860–1908)
The Brook (op. 43/1)
SATB a cappella
Edward MacDowell is considered to be the first Ameri-
can-born internationally renowned composer. Admired
greatly by Franz Liszt and close friends with Edvard
Grieg, he continued the European music tradition of
the 19
th
century, but still developed his very own per-
sonal style. Both Northern Songs op. 43 are his only
a cappella works for mixed voices and are jewels of
finely differentiated choral music.
In The Brook, the flowing of the river becomes the flow
of life. The piece is marked by expressively delicate
fluctuations between major and minor, whereby
Edward MacDowell sensitively transforms the manifold
emotions into tones.

EL Raphael (b. 1972)
Asi Sea – El mar del amén
(The Answer of the Sea)
SSAATTBB a cappella
“Love is the amen of the universe.” (Novalis) Slowly, in
the sound of the sea, through its broken syllables, a hid-
den message reveals itself. What can the song of the
ocean convey to us? Perhaps the calling of the sea: the
calling of the sea to say “amen”. We have often heard
voices and narratives in birdsong, in the rustle of leaves
on the trees, in the whistling of the wind and in the
murmur of the sea. Federico Garcia Lorca once said: “We
must be like a tree, standing constantly in prayer.” And
precisely in order to succeed in rendering this profound
song of praise of the ocean, we need both the colourful
sound of a large choir and its calm.
