Review quote

This is an exciting and superbly presented new collection of pieces suitable, as the title implies, for use from Ash Wednesday until Easter Day, but many are usable on other occasions, particularly at Sung Eucharists . . . I cannot recommend this book too highly. * John Ewington, Guild of Church Musicians 1999 Yearbook * Although this book is presented in soft cover, it opens easily for use, and both words and musical notation are very easy to read. Careful editing of early scores (e.g. 16th century music) enables modern choirs to tackle the performance of this repertoire with ease, while grouping the pieces of music according to the day, or season, enables the choir director to easily find suitable music for a specific occasion - a great timesaver! * Organ News (NZ), May 99 *show more
