Review: Adele is currently the most acclaimed female singer of the era and her songs are hits worldwide. Have your choir singing the latest hit music. From her second album 21 and also performed by Gwyneth Paltrow on Glee "Turning Tables" has a piano accompaniment that is almost classical in approach, the reflective vocals express emotion of deep melancholy tinged with hopefulness. "Someone Like You" opens with a single voice on the opening verse, the vocal textures gradually build into a full-voiced chorus that expresses the emotional message of the song. Ideal for all types of choral ensembles! "Rolling in the Deep" can be performed a cappella, as in the GLEE version, or with the bluesy, soulful accompaniment. The all-girl Troubletones sing a phenomenal mash-up of two Adele hits in Season Three. Alternating between the aggressive "Rumour Has It" and a more accepting "Someone Like You," this epic pairing offers solo opportunities and powerful vocal backups. A fantastic SSA feature!
Songlist: Turning Tables, Someone Like You, Rolling in the Deep, Rumour Has It / Someone Like You

Review: "Many people think it is a comparatively easy task to write a composition on found folk tunes... This way of thinking is completely erroneous. To handle folk tunes is one of the most difficult tasks; equally difficult, if not more so, than to write a major original composition. If we keep in mind that borrowing a tune means being bound by its individual peculiarity, we shall understand one part of the difficulty. Another is created by the special character of folk tune. We must penetrate it, feel it, and bring out its sharp contours by the appropriate setting... It must be a work of inspiration just as much as any other composition." - Bela Bartok
Songlist: Mocking of Youth - from Four Women's Choruses, Spring, The Wooing of a Girl, Enchanting Song

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

Review: Frank Sinatra was a showbiz legend - famous not just for singing but also for acting, appearing in over 50 films, winning an Academy Award for his portrayal of Maggio in From Here to Eternity. This collection represents three of his most popular and iconic hits. "I've Got You Under My Skin" was written by Cole Porter. It became a signature song for Sinatra and was one of the most requested songs at his concerts. "The Lady is a Tramp" has become a stand-alone classic for many, not least Sinatra. Recorded in 1979, Sinatra's version of the "Theme from New York, New York" became one of his most popular closers. With piano.

Review: Generally recognized as the father of the Neo-Romantic movement in music, David Del Tredici has received numerous awards (including the Pulitzer Prize) and has been commissioned and performed by nearly every major American and European orchestral ensemble. "Del Tredici," said Aaron Copland, "is that rare find among composers - a creator with a truly original gift. I venture to say that his music is certain to make a lasting impression on the American musical scene. I know of no other composer of his generation who composes music of greater freshness and daring, or with more personality." From Del Tredici's Program notes: "In this traumatic post-9/11 world, I felt an urge to connect with, and even comfort, the youngest generation of budding musicians. Heart and felt are two words that directed my choice of texts: I wanted to tell something about myself, as well as about the joys of childhood ... Stevenson's "The Little Land" re-creates the imaginitive world that to daydreaming children seems so natural." David Del Tredici writes: "My setting of the 1727 New England Primer's "Alphabet" might horrify its Puritan author by transforming its simple text into an exuberant tour de force. Its 26 couplets tumble upon one another in tight three-part counterpoint, testing the young performers' range and endurance alike."
Songlist: Alphabet (Fuga), Sabbath's Child, The Little Land

Songlist: Peter Piper
Review: Subtitled "Four Vivariations", Irving Fine's McCord's Menagerie, are settings of humorous poems by David McCord. With the bumbling "loo's" accompanying the tenor melody, Fine's setting of Vultur Gryphus implies a harmless creature. Instead of the movie western's ominous bird associated with death, Fine's animal seems too lazy and stupid to get his own food! Jerboa, classified as the genus jaculus jaculus, is as active and scary in Fine's world as Vultur Gryphus is laid back and friendly. Fine agrees with those to whom a darting (the translation of the Latin jaculus) small rodent is sinister and creepy, attributes he conveys through abrupt entrances and minor tonality. In Mole McCord compares the over-soul of man, a Unitarian concept put forth by Ralph Waldo Emerson, with the limited capacities of the mole. In Clam, Fine and McCord give in to their silliest selves. McCord observes how man the diner and clam the dinner (in chowder no less) both evolved from the same ancestor; man is saved from the clam's fate, according to McCord, by his own initiative and work ethic. Fine has a lot of fun with the sounds suggesting insouciance, which explains why the clam never got ahead! Lots of fun here.
Songlist: Jerboa, Vultur Gryphus, Clam, Mole

Review: The anthems in this book have been chosen from the best religious music of many churches, countries, and centuries. Since the amount of good church music composed for women's voices is practically negligible, the book contains for the most part traditional airs and carols newly harmonized, arrangements of music composed originally for mixed voices, and a few judiciously selected songs originally composed for solo voice, to which choral parts have been added. There are included a number of anthems intended to be sung without accompaniment and simple enough for a young choir's first venture into a cappella singing. Accompaniments are provided, but are marked FOR REHEARSAL ONLY, and directors are urged to let their choirs experience the delight and growth that comes from this kind of singing, and never to doubt their ability to undertake it.
Songlist: A Babe So Tender, But the Lord is Mindful of His Own, Deck Thyself, my Soul, With Gladness, Ding-Dong! Merrily on High, Father Eternal, From God Shall Naught Divide Me, Glory to God, God is a Spirit, God our Father, Lord of Heaven (Tantum Ergo), Good Christian Men, Rejoice, He Shall Feed His Flock, Holy, Holy, Holy!, How Beautiful are the Feet, Jesus Christ is Risen Today, Jesu, Holy Spirit, Let All Things Now Living, Lift Thine Eyes to the Mountains, Lo, He Comes With Clouds Descending, Lo, How a Rose E'er Blooming, Long Hast Thou Stood, O Church of God, O For a Heart to Praise my God, O Holy Jesu, O Rejoice, Ye Christians, Loudly, O Sacred Head now Wounded, Praise the Lord!, Rejoice in the Lord Alway, The King of Love my Sheperd is, The Spacious Firmament, Thou Knowest, Lord, Turn Thee, again, O Lord, Up, up! My Heart, With Gladness, We Gather Together (Prayer of Thanksgiving), We Give Thee but Thine Own, What Child is This?, Where Are Those Who Long Have Striven, Ye Sons and Daughters of the King, Ye That Have Spent the Silent Night, Ye Watchers and Ye Holy Ones
Review: American Idol was the television hit of the summer. The winner, Kelly Clarkson, rocketed to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 with the hit "A Moment Like This". Beautifully arranged for choir, this moment will capture your audience's heart! The power ballad "Behind These Hazel Eyes" taps into all the angst and intensity of young love. A great showcase for SSA choirs, it retains all the emotion of the original recording. Nobody's going to make a fool of Kelly Clarkson with the empowered anthem "Mr. Know It All" that shows she can stand up for herself! The R&B infused vocals cross genres between urban, country and rock for a gutsy tune your girls will love to sing! Alan Billingsley captures all the excitement of the original in this appealing arrangement of "Breakaway" from The Princess Diaries 2. Piano accompaniment.

Review: Is half the choir on vacation? Did inclement weather prevent even your most faithful from showing up Sunday morning? Did the minister suddenly change the worship emphasis without telling you? This invaluable sequel to its best-selling predecessor (Vol. 1 - 45/1108L) will help you and your choir maintain an excellent ministry of music for your congregation in spite of unforeseen crises. The creative use of unisons, doublings, canons, and similar compositional devices make these ten well-crafted anthems "one-rehearsal wonders," yet maintain an appropriate musical and theological integrity. The variety of musical styles is ideal for churches seeking a blended worship format and it is an economical, budget-stretching addition to your choral library.

Review: Post-holiday doldrums, summer choir vacation season, "snow" Sundays, or simply a smaller church-whatever the reason might be for your small and probably vocally unbalanced choir, the reality is that the music ministry is still important to the worship experience and appropriate anthems must be found. This superb collection can make that daunting task a joy. Ten anthems for any combination of voices in unison, two-part, or simple SAB make this a practical compilation. The talented composers and text writers included make it worth singing and hearing, and the price, at less than half the cost of the anthems purchased separately, makes it a very economically viable purchase as well. Perhaps the understated title of the collection should be altered to match the title of the first anthem-Let All The People raise Thee. This anthology makes that possible no matter who is in the choir on Sunday!
Songlist: Let All the People Praise Thee, A Time for All Things, Let Us Love One Another, A Jubilant Song, Come Bless the Lord, Lord, Lead Me, Lord, Praise Him, Alleluia, Sing a New Song, A Blessing, Supplication

Songs may be sung a cappella or accompanied, making this especially good for contest programming.
Songlist: Keep Your Lamps Trimmed and Burnin', The Secret, I Know Where I'm Goin', French Dancing Song (Sur le pont d'Avignon).
Review: The 18 songs on the CD by the same name are all found within this songbook. Twelve of the songs are rounds or chants, with the others largely three part harmony settings. So this collection will be appropriate for womens' or girls' groups looking for straightforward harmony settings of women-oriented songs. While the songs are accessible to all levels of singers, we think even advanced ensembles will find material here that will round out their performances. The songs include Native American chants ("Neesa," "Now I Walk In Beauty"), two Renaissance Spanish pieces ("O Virgo Splendens," "Con El Viento"), a Swedish "Lullaby," and a Shaker hymn "Ode to Contentment."
Songlist: Fire Within, Hotaru Koi , Treeplanter's Round, Con El Viento, Good Friend , Kona Kai Opua I Ka Lai , O Virgo Splendens , Rise Up O Flame, Neesa, Lullaby, Clear Horizon, Ode To Contentment, I Will Be Gentle With Myself , Now I Walk In Beauty, Be Like A Bird, Lo Yisa Goy, Kwaheri, And She Will Rise
