Review quote

. . . a diverse, serendipitous, demanding (some items should carry a health warning) and, in a couple of cases, downright bizarre collection of choral oddities as ever landed on a reviewer's doormat. * Stephen Jackson, Mastersinger Spring 2005 * Of course, encores need not only be frivolous. Peter Gritton's diverse selection also takes in English folk song, spirituals and his own African-inspired Good Hope, as well as Saint-Saens, Rachmaninov, Reger and Brahms. Most impressive is the fact that half of the 30 pieces that appear here are published for the first time, so you are bound to make new discoveries. On top of the excellent choice of music, this book boasts classy presentation, an
informative intoroduction and a sensible price, so gold stars all round for OUP. * Armin Zanner, Music Teacher May 2005 * Anyone who has tried their hand at programming concerts will know that finding a closer, the piece that will convincingly end the show and bring the house down, is the heardest thing to find. Peter Gritton's new OUP publication, Encores for Choires 2 will, however, make it a little easier - one suspects a few of these numbers will be cropping up in choral competitions over the coming years! . . . But looking at familiar material in a new light is a welcome
provocation and a strength of this highly entertaining volume. * Matthew Greenall The Singer June 05 *
