5.0 out of 5 stars A choral classic
Very surprised to see that there's no review for this (presumably because most potential punters and reviewers already have a dog-eared copy). Carols for Choirs 1 & 2 are pretty much guaranteed to be on any British chorister's bookshelf, and many Christmas concerts or Nine Lessons and Carols services will have about three-quarters of their content taken from these.

Very surprised to see that there's no review for this (presumably because most potential punters and reviewers already have a dog-eared copy). Carols for Choirs 1 & 2 are pretty much guaranteed to be on any British chorister's bookshelf, and many Christmas concerts or Nine Lessons and Carols services will have about three-quarters of their content taken from these. Some of the arrangements of well-known carols are quite complicated, so may need more rehearsal than you might think. Volume 2 is where John Rutter took over from Reginald Jacques, so does have quite a lot of his work - though not "What Sweeter Music", alas. The rowdy / non-religious side of Christmas is represented, with versions of Deck the Hall and the Twelve Days of Christmas for example (both book 2).

This review is from: Carols for Choirs 2: Fifty Carols for Christmas and Advent (Vocal score): Vocal Score Bk.2 (Paperback)
I sing in a choir and like every year we organise a Christmas concert. This book helped me with the carols, they are very clear and it has the traditionals ones everybody sings. Very useful!

This review is from: Carols for Choirs 2: Fifty Carols for Christmas and Advent (Vocal score): Vocal Score Bk.2 (Paperback)
The second in the series of books of carol music scores. Probably essential for choirs choosing a range of carols to sing.

I had a previous copy of 'Fifty Carols for Christmas and Advent' and it lasted for over 30 years. I am so glad that this copy is much larger than my old one as with ever increasing age it is much clearer to read the music.

An invaluable purchase which I am enjoying using for my upcoming Christmas Concert with my local choral society. We use this book every year and this will save me having to borrow it from local libraries.

This review is from: Carols for Choirs 2: Fifty Carols for Christmas and Advent (Vocal score): Vocal Score Bk.2 (Paperback)
This book is larger than expected which is good. It makes the music easier to read. There are a wide variety of carols in the book, some well known and some not so well known.

The book is exactly what I wanted and needed for the choir I belong to. It was delivered very quickly but, alas, it has not improved my singing - I live in hope!
