"In a world where mutability is the one thing on which we can rely, certain names carry with them an aura of comforting constancy: Banks (Music Publications) is a treasured example in the world of music, and their Eboracum Choral Series continues to be a wonderfully reliable resource".

The Cuckoo
By Chris Williams

The accessibility of Chris's writing and immediate appeal to both singers and audience make this collection of folksongs, sea shanties and a round. a 'must have' for any choir wanting wonderful secular choral music to fill their concert. From the fun and lively round Fig or a Pear to the reflective and charming African folksong Abiyoyo, and a fresh look at the well known sea shanties - there's something for everyone.
