A complete Christmas resource for choirs
A stunning collection of carols including six with brass and three rounds. The majority are for unaccompanied choir and are varied in style; from the very simple unaccompanied setting of I sing of a Maiden through to the more challenging A Babe is Born. There are six new carols for brass and choir, which can also be performed with organ or piano - from Hark! the Herald Angels Sing with its simple hymn-like style for the choir and virtuosic brass writing to the somewhat tongue-in-cheek Merry Christmas Cha-Cha-Cha!
Chris Williams is a composer with amazingly wide popular appeal. The carols in this volume span over a 25 year period, written for friends or groups which Chris was involved with or directed. They have been performed and loved by both singers and audiences alike.
"These are a wonderful addition to the collection and add a real brilliance and contrast. There are also three rounds to get your audiences up and singing. The carols fit perfectly into any Christmas concert and as a conductor I have found them invaluable. The carols are all gems; it is hard to pick a favourite. I hope that by publishing all these carols in a single volume this will become a valued Christmas resource for you too."
