WAUKESHA, WIS.—Boosey & Hawkes, a British music publisher purported to be the world’s largest publisher of classical music, has published an original composition by Dr. Kristina Boerger, associate professor of music and director of choral activities at Carroll University.
“Ballade with Christine de Pisan” is the first part of Boerger’s trilogy for a cappella women’s chorus. The trilogy features texts on grief by poet and mediaevalist Sarah White and features an extended soprano solo over a chorus with soprano I, soprano II and alto voices.
The second part of the trilogy is “Song from Cymbeline” for double women’s chorus; the final part is “The Silver Buckle on Mozart’s Shoe: Oath on the First Anniversary,” featuring an obbligato for tenor instrument.
Boerger joined the Carroll faculty in 2009.
