The Boosey & Hawkes Concerts for Choirs series is an innovative approach to concert planning for choirs. Each volume contains a wealth of material to help the choral director assemble a concert programme - all from one volume. The anthology draws on the vast Boosey and Hawkes archive and also includes many specially-composed or newly-arranged pieces.
'Christmas in Blue' is a collection of familiar and not-so-familiar festive songs brought together by Nigel Short, former member of the King's Singers and conductor of Tenebrae. His own new arrangements join those by Christopher Norton (Microjazz), Karl Jenkins, Will Todd, Goff Richards, Carol Canning (a former member of the Swingle Singers) and Ward Swingle himself.
