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."

Oxford GB Organist and academic musicologist
Unusually for an anthology of this type nearly all of the works are both new to the general anthology repertory (so you're not duplicating things in other books which is what is so annoying about carol books) and they are also all both singable and excellent quality musically. I have been through the book and only found a couple of pieces that we would probably never sing, so on the whole I'm extremely pleased with the purchase of a set for the church choir. They will provide us with repertory for some time to come, and with our limited rehearsal time, we can easily learn a new piece in one sitting. We have quite a few other anthologies (e.g. European Sacred Music, which has only about 30% useful content), so a collection like this of longer works that doesn't duplicate what is already out there would go down very well.
This is a book of short anthems, but having discovered so many excellent pieces in this anthology my only regret is that they are almost all too short, at least to cover communion. They would make excellent introits, but for communion we would probably have to sing two. A similar book with longer works would be excellent.

LONDON OHIO USA GB ex-music teacher/opera singer
I made a list of 10 anthems which I will
recommend to the director of the
Presbyterian Church Choir. Some
anthems which I liked were in Latin &
probably would not be done in that
There were a few modern anthems which
I felt were either strange or too dissonant to be "EASY" as the title of the
collection says.

Chappaqua, NY GB Church music director/choir
A good selection for smaller choirs. Charming variety of anthems. Very manageable and interesting as well.
I would like it to contain more anthems even if price were slightly higher.
