Review by tripleblessings
A superb collection of choral arrangements of Christmas carols.This book updates and expands on the Oxford Carol books numbers 1, 2 and 3, which were edited by David Willcocks. Seventy-four of the most popular carols from those books are included here. There are 26 new pieces added, including familiar classics, recent original carols, and some new arrangements of traditional favourites. A great many of the arrangements are by Willcocks or by John Rutter, who are recognized masters in the English choral music tradition. The arrangements are challenging and require good choir singers and strong music readers. Many of these carols have been recorded by John Rutter conducting the Cambridge Singers, or by David Willcocks conducting the choir of King's College.A superb collection, great resource for church or amateur choirs planning a Christmas concert.
