James Rodde has dusted off and edited a beautiful score from Handl’s (also known as Jacob Gallus) Opus Musicum III. Confirma hoc is a polyphonic piece that has beautifully shaped melodies and well crafted vocal lines. The voice writing is very friendly, having very few large melodic leaps. The vocal ranges should be quite comfortable for all parts with the Tenor 1 never going above high F and the Bass never going below bottom space A-flat. The work is scored for TTBB, and will provide a great opportunity for success for high school and collegiate singers alike.
