Williams, Chris: Nowell! Nowell! SATB Collection. Vocal Score.
Christmas Carols and Rounds for SATB, Organ and Optional Brass. Vocal Score.
A wonderful collection of Christmas carols by Chris Williams. Chris Williams is a composer with amazingly wide popular appeal. The carols in this volume span over a 25 year period, written for friends or groups which Chris was involved with or directed. They have been performed and loved by both singers and audiences alike. The majority, are for unaccompanied choir and are varied in style; from the very simple unaccompanied setting of I sing of a Maiden through to the more challenging A Babe is Born. There are six new carols for brass and choir, which can also be performed with organ or piano – from Hark the Herald with its simple hymn-like style for the choir and virtuosic brass writing to the somewhat tongue-in-cheek Merry Christmas Cha-Cha-Cha. These are a wonderful addition to the collection and add a real brilliance and contrast. There are also three rounds to get your audiences up and singing.
Full score and instrumental parts available (FS001).
