Sing, Choirs!: Anthems, Psalms And Hymns For Choirs (SATB/Organ)

Books | SATB, Organ Accompaniment

Publisher: Novello & Co Ltd.
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work

Sing, Choirs! is a library in miniature. It contains many of the Christian church’s popular traditional anthems, including at least one example that will be suitable for each of the major services of the year.

A number of Anglican chants (Psalms, Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis) are included, set out in a way that should enable those who are unfamiliar with the style to perform them easily. The selection of movements from the Mass can be used to enrich the music of the liturgy in services.

Many of the works in Sing, Choirs! are presented in their original form, such as Bruckner’s Locus Iste and Mozart’s Laudate Dominum. Others are arrangements, adaptations or longer pieces, abridged to bring them into the scope of a useable anthem, including choral arrangements of Handel’s Largo, the Ave Marias by Schubert and by Bach and Gounod, and Franck’s Panis Angelicus amongst many others.

This collection has practicability as a priority. The Organ parts can be played on either the Piano or the Keyboard.

Much of the music in Sing, Choirs! will be suitable for special occasions, making this an indispensable volume for choirs singing at weekly church services, weddings, funerals and in the concert hall.

      The choir like the varied selection of pieces included in this book. In general, we will no longer need to carry a large number of separate pieces. The presentation of the music is clear and easy to read.
