Adding Scores from Art Song Central

CPDL editors are welcome to link to songs from my site, but I ask that you link to my song information pages, and not rehost the PDF files. I've put a lot of work into creating a site that complements, rather than competes with CPDL, and I appreciate the referrals.

There are some pieces for which Art Song Central does not actually host a copy of the sheet music, and I'm inclined to think that those links should be made to the hosting site. (While I am glad to attract new visitors to the site, it seems only fair. I'm open to other opinions, though.)

Choral Scores

I'm preparing several choral pieces I've written or arranged to be added to CPDL.

Education

American baritone David Newman enjoys an active and varied concert career throughout North America. Hailed as “electrifying” by the Washington Post and noted by the Sacramento Bee for his “rather perfect oratorio voice,” he is in particular demand as a Baroque specialist. He has performed Messiah with Tafelmusik, Portland Baroque Orchestra, Jacksonville Symphony, and with Masterwork Chorus in Carnegie Hall; St. John Passion with the American Bach Soloists, Carmel Bach Festival, Chorale Delaware, and the Bach Chamber Orchestra of Honolulu; and St. Matthew Passion with the Bach Society of St. Louis, Baroque Choral Guild, San Francisco Bach Choir, and a national tour with the combined forces of Santa Fe Pro Musica and the Smithsonian Chamber Players.

In his debut with the Washington Bach Consort, Mr. Newman was noted by the Baltimore Sun for his “exquisitely phrased, velvet-toned Mache dich, mein Herz.” Other notable appearances include Bach’s B Minor Mass and Christmas Oratorio with The Bethlehem Bach Choir, Coffee Cantata, Easter Oratorio, and Christmas Oratorio with the Santa Fe Bach Festival, and Haydn’s Creation with The Honolulu Symphony. He was also a featured soloist in the Sorbonne’s 2003 Festival Berlioz in Paris with the UC Davis Symphony Orchestra.

He has appeared regularly as a guest artist with the Four Nations Ensemble, including performances in Lincoln Center and Merkin Hall, and has also performed with the Spoleto Festival, Opera Company of Philadelphia, Metropolitan Opera Guild, Opera Birmingham, Philadelphia Orchestra, and the Russian National Orchestra. His recording of Alexander’s Feast with The Bach Sinfonia was recently released on the Dorian label. Mr. Newman teaches voice at James Madison University.
