Table of contents
many a choir collection. * Matthew Greenall, The Singer, June 05 * This glorious anthology has been put together to accompany the successful Advent for Choirs volume ad Ash Wednesday to Easter for Choirs . . . Many church choirs find that they have a small number of pieces suitable for these events which they recycle year on year. This collection of fifty pieces will give you a number of new ideas for each of these important festivals . . . It is an extremely useful and all-encompassing resource, and highly recommended. * Leah Perona-Wright, Church Music Quarterly June 05 * Malcolm Archer and John Scott have brought together a wide selection of well- and lesser-known works related to this part of the church's year. In addition to Palestrina, Purcell, Elgar and Rachmaninov, there are contribtuions from contemporary composers - for example, Alexander Flood, Simon Lole, and Peter Crump - all writing in a style that is individual yet approachable. There is a good mixture of accompanied and a capella pieces, and all are accessible to mixed,
confident choirs, without too many technical pitalls. * Malcolm Goldring, Music Teacher, August 05 * This array piont to the strengths of the collection - a diversity of traditional styles, interesting texts, and a quality of musical editing and physical presentation which we risk taking for granted with this publisher and such distinguished editors . . . But I can readily recommend its utility and suitablility for the particular slice of the liturgical year that it addresses. * Alan Lewis, Journal of the Association of Anglican Musicians, December 06 *
