Noël 2 is an exciting collection of Advent, Christmas and Epiphany music for mixed voice choirs, which follows on from the highly acclaimed Noël! Volume 1 (Catalogue No. NOV310800). The contents range from the Renaissance to the present: from Byrd and Sweelinck, via Bach, familiar settings of traditional and lesser known carols through the ages to Howells and Leighton, and work by today's composers including Richard Rodney Bennett, Eric Whitacre, John Tavener Tarik O'Regan and Richard Allain.

Mixed voice choirs of all levels will find here new arrangements of favourite carols as well as stimulating works for the Christmas season, from the easy to learn to the more challenging and unconventional.

Selected and edited by David Hill, Choral Advisor to Novello, Chief Conductor of the BBC singers, Musical Director of The Bach Choir, Chief Conductor of The Southern Sinfonia and Music Director of Leeds Philharmonic Society. He was awarded an honorary Doctorate by the University of Southampton in 2002 in recognition of his Services to Music.

"Noël was a welcome addition to the Christmas list for decent standard choirs; Noël 2 adds even more to the repertoire in a handy volume...

The main enticements are some fantastic new arrangements of old favourites, a number of works previously only available in single sheets (Whitacre's
Lux Arumque among others) and some fantastic new surprises. Adrian Peacock's Venite, Gaudete is a wonderfully original and vibrant setting, Richard Rodney Bennet's I Wonder as I Wander is both reflective and effective, and there are plenty more.

Some of the pieces here will challenge your choir, but there's a vast amount to get the Christmas inspiration flowing.
" - Jonathan Wikeley, Music Teacher November 2009

‘…an outstanding resource for Advent, Christmas and Epiphany’ Andrew Stewart, Choir & Organ November/December 2010
