This major new collection is the perfect resource for small choirs, young choirs, and all choirs whose numbers fluctuate week by week. Each piece is scored flexibly with optional parts or parts for equal voices, so that it can be performed by more than one combination of performers; many pieces can also be sung in unison. The music is accessible - ideal for choirs with limited rehearsal time - and keyboard parts are playable on organ (with or without pedals) or pia. The repertoire spans the sixteenth century to the present day and includes new, flexibly scored arrangements of traditional pieces, as well as newly commissioned anthems. There are also pieces in lighter styles, to cater for a broad range of tastes. With complete coverage of the church year, this is an essential resource for those looking for fresh and accessible options for church services.
