“Suitable for small or large choruses, Clare Shore’s ‘Three a cappella Carols’ utilize traditional English texts in new musical settings. Performed as a set, the three songs offer contrast in style and length, beginning with two brief carols – a jubilant Joy to the World, followed by the more somber Silent Night – and culminating in the lively Good King Wenceslas, with optional solos. The carols are accessible to the listener and are suitable for sacred or secular occasions.”
USE: Holiday services and concerts – for skilled church, high school, college, community, professional choruses
