Since completing his series of Bach editions (St John & St Matthew Passions etc.) for the New Novello Choral Edition, the distinguished singer and musicologist Neil Jenkins has turned his attention to other fine choral works that have needed new English performing editions, including works by Handel, Haydn, Schutz, Mendelssohn and Schumann.
He has also produced English editions for Barn End Press of the complete SATB and SSAA Partsongs by Schumann and Haydn.
Solo singers will find that his new Oratorio Albums, one for each solo voice (S,A,T& B), contain all the principal arias from classical composers that they are likely to need for their Recital performances or teaching purposes.
Barn End Press has prepared new English-language editions of many little-known choral works by major composers as well as newly translated editions of well-loved and frequently performed Oratorios by the likes of Haydn, Handel, Schutz and Mendelssohn. These English texts have been assiduously scrutinised for their accuracy as well as their practicality in performance. Vocal scores may be purchased or hired, and full scores and instrumental parts may be hired.
