A second collection of 50 carols, mostly for SATB, some unaccompanied, and some having accompaniments for piano, or organ, or orchestra, or brass ensemble. Many of the carols are from traditional sources, rearranged: among the items composed especially for this volume are carols by William Walton, Benjamin Britten, Richard Rodney Bennett, and William Mathias. Instrumental material for most of the accompanied items is available on hire. Eight Carols for Brass for 5 and 8 part brass (to accompany carols from Carols for Choirs 1 and Carols for Choirs 2) are also on sale.
