Fanfare by J.N. Lemmens
  • Dear friends, are you familiar with Festival Alleluias by W. Ferris on the Widor Toccata ? I am looking for a similar thing on the organwork Fanfare by N.J. Lemmens (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xamwXxtoSMo). Is there an existing version ? If not, I am looking for an arranger who would try to ad a TTB or TTBB chorus on the words hallelujah.
    Thank you very much,
    Dirk Maes

    Mr. Maes, did this ever come to fruition? This is a lovely piece, and if no one has done it yet, I would definitely be interested.

    Yeah, hi! We interacted a few years ago over Victoria and Robledo.

    Take a look at this. Obviously it can't yet be sung as it is by TTBB, but I had to get the architecture in my head first.

    1) That looks like a good start
    2) As a professional, classically-trained tenor who has performed many opera/operetta roles and soloed with numerous orchestras and choral organizations...the tessitura of the T1 part is...not gonna work as it is. You probably know this already, but I want to make sure you do!
    3) Keep at it--it'll probably be pretty cool once you get it all figured out :-)

    Hey Nathan, indeed, we sing the Robledo several times a year ! It still makes us happy. And Irish tenor, you are right ! As I sing tenor 1 in our ensemble, I would die trying to sing this.

    That right there is what we call an alto part, young grasshopper. (if even)
