ABSTRACT:

Many choral conductors shy away from performing Chinese choral pieces because of the language barrier. Although linguistic resources exist for the pronunciation of Mandarin Chinese, they are generally written from the perspective of a first-language Chinese speaker or a first-language English speaker. The more comprehensive pronunciation guides are for linguistic purposes and not geared for practical use for conductors or singers. This article provides a diction guide using the International Phonetic Alphabet for Mandarin Chinese written by a conductor and singer who grew up speaking both languages.

ABSTRACT:

Netherlandish composer Adrian Willaert (c.1490–1562), who held the maestro di cappella post at St. Mark’s Basilica in Venice for much of the mid-16th century, composed three motets that set excerpts from the Latin text of Virgil’s epic Aeneid (c.19 BCE). While motets are generally defined as sacred works, these three secular Latin-texted pieces provide a series of examples of musical humanism in practice. Willaert’s O socii, Dulces exuviae a 3, and Dulces exuviae a 4 are case studies both for the ways that Renaissance-era composers engaged directly with humanism through their compositions, and for the varied motives that could lead a composer at this time to set this ancient Roman text.
