Christmas Choral Music
30th September 2009
The Choral section of www.chesternovello.com is the perfect starting point for choirs searching for new Christmas repertoire.
In addition to new carols by Richard Rodney Bennett, Geoffrey Burgon and John McCabe, Ex Maria Virgine, a Christmas sequence by John Tavener is now available for the first time.
Two essential Christmas collections are published by Novello this autumn: Christmas at King’s College (ed. Stephen Cleobury) is a collection of nearly fifty carols and anthems, as well as commissions, that have featured in the annual Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols in the Chapel of King’s College, Cambridge.
Following the success of Noël, published in 2000, Noël! 2 (ed. David Hill) presents a selection of carols from the Renaissance to the present day, combining popular favourites with lesser-known repertoire.
Finally, for choirs in search of lighter repertoire, Christmas Pops, selected by Ralph Allwood, features approachable SATB arrangements of well known classics new and old, including All I want for Christmas and Little Saint Nick.
