Review quote

At a time when there is so much bad music being produced for use in churches, I found it heartening to browse through an anthology of good quality material like this. Anyone starting up a church choir from scratch with novice singers, or trying to run an established choir with fluctuating or greatly reduced resources, should find it invaluable. * Clare Stevens, Choir and Organ, May/June 2002 * Since many choirs have to fight tooth and nail for funds to buy music, purchasing a collection can be a very cost-effective way of 'kitting out' your choir. The New Oxford Easy Anthem Book will not provide something appropriate for every Sunday; however, there is enough in this collection to make it a very useful resource. If you haven't got the earlier edition, or your copies are in tatters, The New Oxford Easy Anthem Book will be a valuable resource for your parish choir. * Patrick Geary, Music and Liturgy Summer 2002 * There is, however, much subtlety in the way this volume's material has been selected . . . Also, there is much that is altogether fresh, with 20 of the 63 items being new compositions or arrangements . . . At well over 200 pages, this represents very good value. * Matthew Greenall, The Singer, Dec 02 * It is indeed a great honour and privilege to review what I am certain will become a most sought-after choral resource. Church, school and other amateur choirs across the world can only benefit from the magnificent new anthology The New Oxford Easy Anthem Book . . . What results is a truly versatile, cosmopolitan and satisfying collection of inspired works which is bound to meet the wide-ranging tastes and needs of most church groups. Most of the vocal lines are uncomplicated with comfortable ranges that can be managed by most groups of average ability. * Music Teacher March 2003 * This is a useful collection of anthems for any choir, and highly recommended. * Church Music Quarterly December 03 *show more
