Review: This exciting and accessible collection for upper voices (scored for SA choir and piano) features five brand-new songs by celebrated choral composer Bob Chilcott. Drawing on five very different texts, Chilcott guides the voices through a number of styles and moods; the songs include the rousing 'All for Love of One', gentle 'The Truth is Great', and thought-provoking 'All things pass'. The central song, 'Circles of Motion', is a fervent and positive setting of Joy Harjo's well-known 'Eagle Poem', and the collection is completed by the funky 'Red Boots On', which uses jazzy rhythms and harmonies to bring Kit Wright's text alive. This is Chilcott at his very best - a welcome addition to the repertoire of any upper-voice choir.

Review: This collection was devised in celebration of the fantastic, sequin-encrusted world that was the 1970s.

The Bee Gees 1979 hit Tragedy, is a sophisticated piece of pop music, with carefully thought-out melodies, key changes and dynamics. The Weather Girls 1982 hit of It's Raining Men is a big-voice number and an enduring comp classic. Y.M.C.A. was also a 1979 hit, and performed by the novelty group, Village People. This arrangement is features a percussion breakdown and some textural effects to create a more substantial concert closer or encore. With piano.

Review: This arrangement of "Kyrie/Kum Ba Ya" can be used for many voicing combinations. Cue-sized notes are included to create other voicing possibilities from this two-part mixed arrangement. Sung a cappella, Kyrie/Kum Ba Ya joins the beautiful simplicity of chant using traditional Latin text with the well-knownl African folk song Kum Ba Ya. Greg Gilpin's original gospel chorals are solid-gold. "Keep on Following the Star" is no exception. His new original work for Christmas begins with an infectious chorus full of gospel harmonies and style. The verses are sung with an optional solo above gospel "oo's." Verse and chorus are repetitive, allowing for quick learning. Add a key change, followed by a hot a cappella with hand claps section, finish with a rousing ending and you've got a new hit for your concert this December. "Think On Me" - Never has this art song by Alicia Ann Scott sounded so beautiful and chorally arranged so effectively than now. Heart-wrenching harmonies interpret the touching text and the almost hymn-like pianissimo, a cappella verse adds to the dynamic touches that build in the last refrain and fade away with the last lyric. A choral that will teach your students expression. There are so many options for "All Through The Night" by Greg Gilpin. Optional lyrics also make it suitable for general use. The traditional lyrics are set to new music with a soft calypso feel. The piece may be sung a cappella or with optional piano accompaniment with the addition of low and high hand-drum parts. Simple part writing, solos, and several key changes create a work that will be easy to learn and fun to practice and perform. Choirs of all ages will enjoy this one!

These six anthems were originally designed for two-part treble choirs, but suggestions for successful renditions with unison choirs have been added so that the music may be accessible to a broader age range. Now, Let the Children Sing!

Review: Haiku is a Japanese form of poetry comprised of three lines of five, seven, and five syllables. Jerry Estes has crafted a set of four short pieces set to original haiku... one for each season of the year. All are beautiful in their simplicity. Well suited for Orff accompaniment; bells and rhythm instrument parts are included in the publication. An outstanding learning and performing piece for 2-part choirs. A delicate melody swirls and twirls like drifting snow in this tasteful arrangement of a traditional Japanese school song "Yuki". The three short Japanese phrases (and several English words) are easy-to-learn and bring to mind icy images of wintertime. "Uji River" is the most unique multicultural piece you will sing this year. A primarily English text tells the spectacular story of an ancient Japanese fishing tradition on the Uji River. And a traditional Asian folk melody floats above a gentle koto-like piano. Magical for treble voices, and highly effective when TB singers sound like fishermen. Tsuki means "moon," and is one of just a few Japanese words sung in this pentatonic scale-based song. Other words describe the beauty of the Japanese moon throughout the year. A captivating and memorable piece.
Songlist: Four Seasons of Haiku, Japanese Snow Song (Yuki), Uji River, Tsuki (Japanese Moon), Sakura
