Over 50 of the finest examples of sacred choral music from continental Europe from the sixteenth to twentieth centuries. John Rutter has prepared completely new editions of all the pre-twentieth-century items, going back to the earliest and most reliable manuscript or printed sources. English singing translations are provided for most pieces, and playable keyboard reductions. Orchestrations are available for hire for the eight accompanied items, and some pieces are available separately in the Oxford Choral Classics Octavo series.

This is a wide-ranging selection of sacred choral music, in a clear, well-presented edition - but it's expensive. Take advantage of special offers when these are available by checking Forwood's ScoreStore regularly.

I ordered a book. They charged me the cover price plus postage. The book I ordered arrived in the time they said it would. Whilst you couldn't expect for more, nor could you really expect less.Thank you.


Hi Charles, thanks for your review. We're very pleased to have fulfilled your minimum expectations! Although, we would point out that we didn't charge you the cover price (18.50) but a discounted price, as with everything on our online store. We hope you enjoy using the book, and we thank you again for your order.
