ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Alleluias for Orchestra" is a compilation of pieces by South Dakota composer Stephen Yarbrough. Greg Sandow, music critic for the Wall Street Journal has this to say about Yarbrough's CD: "I enjoyed your CD - appealing, well-written music, absolutely makes its effect. Very clear, nicely crafted. And of course tuneful! It's no wonder you get so many performances. And good ones, too, to judge from the recordings. It's fascinating for me to hear music aimed at an audience nobody in New York really thinks about. Composers here, I think, have the idea that they're aiming much "higher." But they routinely miss whatever they think their target is. You don't! Not that I'm saying you deliberately tailor your work for a particular audience. It just seems so firmly wedded to the people who'd enjoy hearing it."

Stephen Yarbrough is Composer In Residence at the University of South Dakota where he has taught Theory/Composition for twenty four years. He has received many commissions, including the 2004 Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and the National Symphony Orchestra's American Residency Composer Commission for the State of South Dakota. His music has been performed by groups such as the National Symphony Orchestra, the Minnesota Orchestra, the South Dakota Symphony Orchestra, the Northwest Iowa Symphony Orchestra, the Greater Dallas Youth Symphony, and many others. His work is published by TRN Music Publishers, National Music Publishers, the Evergreen Press, and his own company, the Sycamore Press. He may be reached at syarbrou@usd.edu.

"One of the most wonderful discoveries in recent memory!"
Dear Stephen,
I am listening to your CD as I write, and I must tell you that it is one of the most wonderful discoveries in recent memory to hear your music for the first time. Your spirit is so thoroughly "Alleluia" that it almost seems as if you invented the word.

Lanny Wase

You have a tremendous gift to move my spirit with music!
I bought your CD, and of course, I love it. My very favorite is the first one on the CD: "Alleluias for Orchestra." You have a tremendous gift to move my spirit with music!

Susan Fiore

Your compositions are, indeed, joyful!
Dear Stephen,
Your compositions are, indeed, joyful! I've been listening to your CD and enjoying it very much. I've loaned it to the president of the board of the Festival Choir of Madison (WI), with an ulterior motive that you and the conductor of the choir should contact each other to see if something of mutual benefit might be arranged.
