Review quote

The 20 pieces cover widely-used tunes . . . Many will not be limited to strictly seasonal use. All are by contemporary composers, written in a variety of styles, ranging from quiet contemplative to rousing postludes. The idiom varies from slightly Baroque to unfrighteningly contemporary . . . As with the previous Advent and Christmas volume, these compositions have brought a fresh perspective to this important musical form. The book should form a basic part of every parish organistas library. * Trevor Web, www.rscm.com, December 2014 * Many of the items are by composers whose names will be very familiar, and many are of great beauty. It was a pleasure to sit down and play through many of them at one sitting. There is a wide stylistic range, ensuring that there is plenty of material . . . for most occasions. This is an enterprising project, planned to continue with the release of further volumes covering the liturgical year. The layout and printing are admirably clear. Though the anthology market is fairly crowded, I welcome this endeavour and recommend the series to any player who is seeking approachable and attractive contemporary settings. * David Dewar, Organists' Review, December 14 *show more
