SATB choir
Composed by Richard Shephard. Christmastide, All Souls, Mary Mother of God, Holy Family A, Holy Family B, Holy Family C. Royal School of Church Music. Sacred. Octavo. 12 pages. Published by GIA Publications (GI.G-6001).

Item Number: GI.G-6001

This miniature collection of modern masterpieces is well worth a place in every serious church musician's choral library:
"Jesu! Dulcis Memoria" is a luscious anthem for SATB voices and treble solo alternating between sections a cappella and with organ. Excellent intonation required to wed these exquisite verses.
"Prayer for a New Mother" with text by the inimitable American author and sparkling wit Dorothy Parker is for unison voices, or would make an equally provocative and stunning art song for a solo voice.
"The Birds" with words by the prolific Anglo-French master Hilaire Belloc is worthy of impeccable performance of the highest rank: "When Jesus Christ was four years old, The angels brought him toys of gold..."

This set is a pure jewel to be enjoyed and performed in a variety of creative liturgical and concert settings.
