    I fell in love with this piece, one of the signature pieces (of the season) at the American Boychoir School. I've purchased it to donate to my Church Choir's library. Part of the order was put on back-order and part of order was shipped almost immediately. No...

    followup required on my part, balance of order was shipped within a few weeks. Vendor gets a B+ and product gets an A+.

  • 2008-12-18 00:00:00.0 Lovely arrangement of the Jessye Norman anthem

    I wondered how a four part arrangement of one of my absolutely favorite Christmas songs would work, especially sans the extraordinary diva it was written for. It works very well. Starts off very simply with soprano and alto and builds to it's wondrous climax. Although it is strophic, the...

    arrangement builds and never becomes dull with lovely counterpoint and moving parts. Add this to your church file. A must have.

    Our choir does it every year. It is beautiful but not easy ...but worth it. Easily one of the favorite carols at our church in the holiday season

  • 2008-05-12 00:00:00.0 THIS CHRISTMASTIDE

    I was most pleased to receive my copies of THIS CHRISTMASTIDE. I have no information about this number other than having heard it on a CD by a local boys choir. I liked the sound of it so much that I wanted to get the music and be sure of...

    the text; I could get most of it from listening to the CD , but actually reading it is always more satisfying to me. It may be a well known work, but I had never heard it before, and I find it a noteworthy piece of music and poetry for the Christmas season, and I hope to encourage its use.
