Day of Wrath
Composed by Z. Randall Stroope
Catalog number: AMP 1090
About the text…
* “Sibyl” or “Sybilla” was a title given to the priestess of the Oracle.
Diction note: Flip all of the “r”s [r]; the vowel “o” is a pronunciational cross between “oh” [o] and “aw” [a];; and take care to keep the “e” [E] vowel consistent throughout the text. (Avoid mixing occasional [e] and [E] vowels.)
About the music…
“Dies Irae” is also available for SSA with piano (AMP 0575) and TBB with piano (AMP 0616). However, these transcriptions are not compatible in terms of combined performance. Each “version” is unique and tailor-made to fit the sonorities of that medium.
