    Difficulty Level:
  • December 30, 2011 Shaw-Parker Carols _ A Treasure

    These arrangements were sung and recordedby the Robert Shaw Chorale - a professional chorus. I have loved these onvinal and CD for many years, but would notadvise for any choir of less than advanced skill level, unless one were to choose carefully and rehearse your choice until every single note was...

    in place.

  • April 01, 2008 Excellent for all occasions

    This book is great for all choral directors. If you teach college, high school, church, community, or a combination of all, this is a great resource for that one last Christmas number to complete your program. The carols range in difficulty, and are perfect quick learn for a small advanced...

    group, or to get those two or three carols that the audience will love year after year.
