More and more choirs are struggling with a lack of male voices for a variety of reasons and thus at the same time for the preservation of beloved SATB repertoire. Youth choirs also often lack exposure to four-part choral classics because young male voices are usually not yet developed enough to handle the full range and demands of a four-part movement. Hal Leonard Europe along with Morten Schuldt-Jensen are proud to present the new SAM-Klang series, which, among other things, reissues essential parts of the German, English and Scandinavian a cappella SATB repertoire. The editions are arranged for two female voices and one male voice, retaining the characteristics of the original movements.
