World Carols For Choirs
Edited and compiled by Bob Chilcott & Susan Knight
World Carols for Choirs is a ground-breaking collection of 31 carols, containing new pieces and arrangements by some of the world's finest carol composers as well as writers whose work may be new to many.
Bob Chilcott and Susan Knight have searched the globe for vibrant, exciting music representing a wide range of choral traditions and styles - from a powerful arrangement of an old Armenian hymn to a percussive Dominican villancico, a carol in the style of Nigerian art music, a Polish folk carol, a new arrangement of a popular Canadian carol, and much more besides. Each piece may be sung in its original language or in English, and pronunciation guides are provided for those who wish to sing the original texts. This collection will help to refresh the repertoire of choirs the world over, with most pieces suitable for choirs of all sizes and abilities.
