Reading Session – SAM Klang
Combining the three voice parts from the arrangements – Soprano, Alto and Men – the name SAM-Klang combines the Scandinavian and German words for ‘sound’ to create the word ‘sound together’ or ‘harmony’. SAM-Klang provides a solution to the issue that many choruses face: a lack of low voices, and in particular, tenors. Offering basic and advanced choral repertoire, the SAM-Klang collection offers essential parts of the classical German, Scandinavian, French and English SATB repertoire, retaining the original timbres and features with piano reductions to facilitate rehearsal preparation. Schuldt-Jensen’s skilful arrangements retain the characteristic features of the works, which include Mozart’s Requiem and Haydn’s The Creation, creating pieces which sound nearly unchanged to an audience. This significant new 17 volume series will expand rapidly and promises to very quickly become popular for choral societies, school choirs, and other groups who often struggle for lower voices.
