Book Description

10 Dec 1998 . . . for Choirs Collections
The editors have selected a richly varied collection of sacred pieces for this period of the Church's year, always bearing in mind practical considerations and liturgical needs. Pieces are presented in order according to the Church's calendar, moving from Ash Wednesday and Lent, through Passiontide and Palm Sunday, to Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Easter Eve, and Easter itself. The best of the standard repertoire is included alongside fine, less familiar, works. Ranging widely from the sixteenth century to the present day, this is a complete and practical collection for church choirs of all sizes and levels of ability.

Product details

Product Description


Although this book is presented in soft cover, it opens easily for use, and both words and musical notation are very easy to read. Careful editing of early scores (e.g. 16th century music) enables modern choirs to tackle the performance of this repertoire with ease, while grouping the pieces of music according to the day, or season, enables the choir director to easily find suitable music for a specific occasion - a great timesaver! (Organ News (NZ), May 99)

This is an exciting and superbly presented new collection of pieces suitable, as the title implies, for use from Ash Wednesday until Easter Day, but many are usable on other occasions, particularly at Sung Eucharists . . . I cannot recommend this book too highly. (John Ewington, Guild of Church Musicians 1999 Yearbook)

5.0 out of 5 stars A good basic resource 10 Mar 2006
By Sean M. Haley - Published on Amazon.com

Finally Oxford has heard our cries and compiled this excellent book for the Lenten and Easter season. Grouped according to the Liturgical progression of the season there are many different pieces covering a vast array of musical styles that can be used all throughout Lent and on Easter. While not created for the small choir of a few paniced singers there are a few pieces that are accessible for the smaller choir. A majority of the anthems and settings are intended for SATB with either organ, or unaccompanied.

This book has been a wonderful find when it seems the only music for Easter being published by the leading publishers has been a little too "commercial." For those who have any part of the Christmas collections from Oxford, this collection will be right at home in your music library next to your other Oxford books.
