This series brings together anthems and carols by some of Oxford's leading choral composers, including John Rutter, Bob Chilcott, Andrew Carter, Mack Wilberg, and Alan Bullard. Together, these collections offer a kaleidoscope of musical styles and texts, including unique arrangements of popular classics alongside some of the composers' finest original works to date.
Previously published under the title 'Gaudete!', this collection of ten exciting carol arrangements has been re-covered to complement Bob Chilcott's first Christmas choral anthology, Bob Chilcott Carols 1. From the simple, understated beauty of 'Away in a manger' to the exuberant jazz waltz version of 'We wish you a merry Christmas', this volume takes a fresh look at classics of the Christmas repertoire. Orchestral material is available on hire for the accompanied pieces.
