Paperback ISBN: 0571521274
The Faber Carol Book is an exciting volume of Christmas carols and songs with an original, contemporary twist, designed to breathe fresh air into Christmas concerts. They contain forty pieces, expertly edited and arranged by Gwyn Arch and Ben Parry, capturing a variety of moods and styles through time -- from contemporary arrangements of medieval and traditional carols, to spirituals, and music from around the world. There is also an impressive line-up of original pieces by some of today's most highly respected choral composers, including Howard Goodall, Lin Marsh, Peter Gritton, Errollyn Wallen and Mike Brewer. There are two separate volumes, this is thev second anthology arranged for SATB, the choice of carols is identical to the earlier SA(B) version (although they are not in the same order, or compatible with the first book). Both publications include undemanding keyboard accompaniment and suggestions for optional instrumental lines.
Paperback ISBN: 0793525055
This is the most serious and useful collection yet published of solo arias from oratorios, masses and cantatas. The literature was confined to work by major composers, and by-passes the dated oratorio literature found in previous collections. The most famous music is here, and so is interesting and less famous music by masters. There are new music engravings for each aria, and extensive historical notes and translations. Solo instrumental obbligato parts, which can be cut from the book, are included on appropriate selections.
