Review quote

Wedding for Choirs, the latest in OUP's long-running series of choral anthologies, is cannily placed to fill a gap in the market . . . Most of the pieces score comfortably for SATB with occasional splitting of voices, and there is a good balance of accompanied and unaccompanied items, important in a wedding context where quality or availability of accompanying instruments cannot always be guaranteed. * The Singer June 03 * Most organists will have a ready collection of well thumbed wedding albums which they merrily fling into their briefcases on the way to any wedding near or far. Rather less plentiful, however, are collections of choral msuic for weddings, so this intelligent selection (in the . . . for Choirs series) is a most welcome addition to the catalogue . . . One aspect which distinguishes this new compilation is the quality and quantity of new or less standard music . . . It was a good idea to include pieces such as Batten's O sing joyfully and Rejoice in the Lord (anon) alongside classic miniatures by Finzi, Ledger, Bairstow and Walton, as this provides not only excellent vlaue by also caters for a wide range of moods and tastes. * Ken Burton, Choir and Organ July 03 * This volume of 40 pieces has been put together to provide a wealth of beautiful music for weddings and will be a useful resource for wedding couples and choirs alike when planning the special day . . . Any choir that sings for non-church weddings will be aware of the difficulties of finding suitable secular music for a registry office ceremony; this volume caters for both church and non-church weddings. This very helpful and wide-ranging collection is highly recommended. * Church Music Quarterly December 03 * Another useful choir resource book is Oxford University Press's Weddings for Choirs. The editors have done a good job in bringing together, in one volume, what the publishers call 'Forty perfect SATB pieces. * Christopher Field, Music Teacher, Jan 04 *show more
