SANCTUS (COPPER, W)
Grade 3 MEN'S CHORUS or MIXED CHORUS
Hartenshield Group, Inc

_William Copper. Meditative setting, a cappella, for men's choir or choir of men and boys. Moderate in difficulty; each part has a carefully managed range: see range descriptions below. C minor/Eb major tonality (no key signature); frequent accidentals mostly within C minor; one B double flat, one C flat. 4 4 meter, Lento sostenuto; change of meter at final cadence (3/4, 4/4, 3/4). Dynamic outline pp-f-pp.

Errata in printed editions: In HGI 0135 (Men's Chorus), the Tenor I part in bar 28 in some printings should be changed to a quarter + half rather than dotted half with text "-san-na". The text using "Domine Deus" (latin vocative) may be replaced by more usual "Dominus Deus" (latin nominative). Also, "gloria ejus [eius]" (his glory) may be replaced by "gloria tua" (Your glory).
