After the success of "Christmas a cappella" (BA 7573) for mixed choir, Graham Buckland has now turned his attention to an edition for female voices. This collection includes popular Christmas melodies in traditional as well as more popular settings from many countries around the world including USA, UK, France, Germany, Austria, Poland and the Czech Republic. All pieces are arranged for two female voice parts with a piano accompaniment but a third optional voice part is also included in many cases. This edition presents one of the most comprehensive collections of Christmas choral settings for female voices.
- Collection of international Christmas songs for female voices - For two to three parts with piano accompaniment - Traditional as well as more popular settings - All song texts in German and English
A selection: A child this day is born / Adeste, fideles / Angels, from the realm of glory /A virgin most pure / Away in a manger / Deck the hall! / Entre le bœuf et l’âne gris / Es ist ein Ros entsprungen /Fröhliche Weihnacht überall! / Go, tell it on the mountain / I saw three ships / Joy to the world / Les anges dans nos campagnes /Macht hoch die Tür / Nun komm, der Heiden Heiland /O Heiland reiß die Himmel auf / O Jesulein süß / Orientis partibus / Quando nascette Ninno / Stern über Bethlehem /The angel Gabriel from heaven came / The Carol of the Drum /The first Nowell / We wish you a merry Christmas /Wie schön leuchtet der Morgenstern
