If you’re looking for a Renaissance choral piece to challenge your students, this is exactly what you need! This arrangement of Victoria’s Verbum Caro will certainly present your ensemble with numerous musical challenges, including but not limited to highly independent vocal lines, rhythmic complexity, counting in cut time, Latin text, musical phrasing, and a capella singing. To teach this piece well, take the time to analyze it in order to help your students understand the overall structure of the work. Additionally, tools such as count singing and solfege are extremely beneficial throughout the teaching and learning of this piece.
