Choirs love Christmas. The pleasure of revisiting the familiar and exploring the new is something singers enjoy year after year. This superb new collection of 42 carols by 26 composers has been specially compiled to appeal to church and school choirs of all kinds. Choirs and those who listen to them will love the 30 new carols in a wide range of tempos and styles (from plainsong to funk), as well as twelve arrangements of well-known favourites. At least six of the settings can be sung unaccompanied, for the more reflective moments as well as the all important impromptu carol singing.

The best-selling first volume of RSCM Anthems for SA/Men, published in 2018, continues to give choirs plenty to get their teeth into with many pieces that can be learned quickly and performed over and over again. This book continues that spirit – 3 part settings that are straightforward but innovative, pleasing to sing, have inspiring texts, and are flexible enough so they can be sung by choirs of all shapes and sizes. The accompaniment parts are not complicated and can be played on an organ or piano. These wonderful carol settings will form part of your carol services for years to come.
