The Polyphonic Group “Claudio Monteverdi” has a wide list of publications, from CDs to scores of traditional Friulan songs. In this section, the Choir is presenting seven of its paper publications.
Composed in 2006 by Maestro Orlando Dipiazza and dedicated to the Monteverdi Choir for its 30th Anniversary of Foundation.
This writing is an intense vocal and instrumental work that adds the presence of a solo tenor and an instrumental group of strings and winds to a choral background. The Veni Creator has been performed for the first time on 8th December 2006 during the 30th Choir Anniversary Concert.
Afterwise, the score for solo tenor, choir and organ has been printed and given freely to 350 member choirs of the USCI (Union of the Choral Societies of the Friuli - Venezia Giulia Region) bythe Union itself.
The Quaderni della Cartelliana are a series created by Giovanni Acciai which offers to the Choral Italian world non-edited or rare compositions of the 16th and 17th Century, a cappella or with instrumental accompanist, and also choral elaborations of traditional songs for even or odds voices basilar to be able to enrich the vocal repertoire.
This leaflet, the third of the series, was written under the influence of the Polyphonic Group “Claudio Monteverdi”, is meant to be nothing more than the result of the two previous experiences, both successfully interpreted: the first one was meant only for primary school, the second one for middle and secondary school.
This book contains ten compositions, new and original, which are not directly tied with the traditional repertoire. They are all songs in Friulan by local authors, but not all of them are respecting the traditional poetic and musical form of the villotta.
The choice of Friulan poets’ texts, as well as Italian like Angelo Poliziano, Gabriele D’Annunzio, Giuseppe Ungaretti, and Umberto Saba… is oriented towards those authors who prefer talking about their inner feelings, elegiacs, nostalgic.
This leaflet, dedicated to the secondary school pupils, brings on the lessons started last year, when there was the publication of the twelve traditional songs elaborated for children’s voices choir.
This is another step along a very difficult path, of particular interest for schools, where a student can learn to know and love the history and the musical culture of Friuli, which we cannot allow to “die”.
This is a series of Friulan traditional songs elaborated for children’s voices choir. This cultural initiative aims at bringing the Friulan traditional singing to a wider audience and to help teachers in primary schools improving musical education.
Introducing Friulan traditional singing in schools means contributing to the preservation of this language and to let others know about the Friulan people and their souls.
This is a series of tracks and profane music for even and odd voices choirs. The pieces contained in the book go from mottoes to madrigals to traditional music.
Meant for youngsters, this series uses singing as a way to learn a language. Therefore it is recommended to schools, as a cultural and educative vehicle, developing wider didactic projects on its notes.
