A useful new resource for choirs, the New Novello Book Of Short & Easy Anthems For Mixed-Voice Choirs is perfect for groups of all sizes and abilities.
The pieces in this exciting collection have been carefully chosen to offer a selection of interesting contemporary works alongside older and more well-known anthems.
It is recognised that many choirs have limited rehearsal time and, frequently, limited vocal resources. This collection aims to provide works that are easily and quickly learnable, with few splits in voice parts. In addition, many of the pieces in the New Novello Book Of Short & Easy Anthems For Mixed-Voice Choirs can be adapted to work as unison settings with accompaniment, or in other flexible forms.
The New Novello Book Of Short & Easy Anthems For Mixed-Voice Choirs is arranged for SATB Choir, with Organ accompaniment.
In the January 2015 edition of the Journal of the Association of Anglican Musicians, Jason Overall writes that "[t]he wealth of new music of modest technical difficulty makes this an interesting and useful collection for nearly every choir."
In the September 2015 issue of the Organists' Review, Michael Bell calls this a "welcome and stimulating publication", suggesting that it provides a counter to claims that "choir repertoires include little seriously modern music."
