Adeste Fideles

The unison singing gently seated above a fluid piano accompaniment develops into a musically lifting chorus that will bring out the best in your young singers’ voices. The “B” section, more bold and deliberate, resolves back into the softer verse and chorus, creating repetition in learning. Available for TB voices as well, this piece creates a wonderful opportunity for your male singers to sing with heart and confidence.

Think On Me

Never has this art song by Alicia Ann Scott sounded so beautiful, and chorally arranged so effectively than now. Heart-wrenching harmonies interpret the touching text and the almost hymn-like pianissimo, a cappella verse adds to the dynamic touches that build in the last refrain and fade away with the last lyric. A choral that will teach your students expression.
