        My choir is very pleased with this book. The copies I ordered recently are a second lot to give out to our new members. Our aim is to perform all the pieces this Christmas, with a harpist.

        Very pleased with the music, which arrived in great condition. Our choir has now started to practice the carols and are enjoying the challenge. They will be perfect in our Christmas concert.

        This is technically quite difficult, yet fabulous to sing. Some of the harmonies are of the ‘makes the hairs on your arms stand up’ style. You do need a good sense of pitch and the ability to count time. I would recommend it to any choir that enjoys a challenge.

        Beautifully written upper voice carols with a perfect marriage of music and text. Challenging but so effective.

        This edition for 3 trebles is to be recommended. It is very clearly laid out and all choirs should enjoy singing this brilliant work. You will need a good accompanist, though, (either harp or piano).

        Classic SSA repertoire for Christmas, but needs polished part-singing and good sense of phrase for convincing performances. Well worth the effort!

        This is one of the most beautiful pieces for a female voices choir (SSA). I have done this many times with choirs of all ages (teens and adults). It is quite difficult yet accessible if worked in the right way. The harp part is magnificent but if it is hard to get a harp to play, the accompaniment can be performed by a pianist instead. Strongly recommend.
