To celebrate its 30th anniversary of publication, a brand new edition of the ultimate combination of traditional hymns and modern worship songs. `Mission Praise' is a much-loved hymn book, and has remained so since its outset in 1984. Initially used for Billy Graham's Mission England rallies - where thousands of people converted to Christianity - it has become a staple of worship throughout the UK and across the world. It was the first hymn book of its kind, introducing more modern styles of music into worship yet retaining the best of traditional hymnody loved by churchgoers of every age. This new, expanded edition of the complete `Mission Praise' includes the whole of the existing collection of over 1000 songs and hymns, and adds the best new songs in various styles from the past few years. This brand new edition has been put together by `Mission Praise''s original editorial team of Peter Horrobin and Greg Leavers, and contains - in this 30th anniversary year - over 100 new songs and has, by popular request, been split into two volumes in order to be more user-friendly.
for SATB and chamber ensemble Inspired by Geertgen's painting Nativity at Night, Candlelight Carol centres around the love of a mother on that first night in the stable. The orchestral material is compatible with both the SATBB and SSAA versions.
for SATB and piano Happy the man's gentle pace, tender harmonies, and flowing piano accompaniment perfectly capture the reflective and uplifting message of John Dryden's text: 'Happy the man...He who, secure within, can say; Tomorrow do thy worst, for I have lived today'. Featuring stirring climaxes, expressive vocal lines, and a fluid piano part, this piece will give rise to a moving performance. Happy the man is featured on the Wroclaw Philharmonic Choir's CD of Bob Chilcott's music.
The Oxford Book of Lent and Easter Organ Music for Manuals comprises a diverse collection of seasonal organ music for manuals only, covering the Church's year from Lent to Pentecost.

The collection is technically accessible and provides approachable repertoire for all church musicians, making it an attractive companion to The Oxford Book of Lent and Easter Organ Music.
for SATB unaccompanied This setting of the well-known fifteenth-century text Lullay, my liking is both simple and effective. With enchanting solos and a gentle choral refrain, this tender carol will bring a moment of stillness and reflection to Christmas concerts and services.
for SATB (with divisions) unaccompanied Helvey's skilful arrangement of the popular hymn by American Baptist minister Robert Wadsworth Lowry is joyous and affirmatory. The anthem is suitable for performance throughout the liturgical year, and the sweeping melodies, contrasting textures, and rich harmonies complement the celebratory nature of the text.
A third collection of 50 carols, mostly for SATB, some
unaccompanied, and some having accompaniments for piano or organ or
orchestra. The carols reflect a diversity of styles and periods,
while remaining within the capacity of an average group of amateur
performers. Includes compositions and arrangements by Britten,
Holst, Howells, Hurford, Vaughan Williams, and Walton.
for SSATB and organ This atmospheric anthem by Cecilia McDowall commemorates the First World War. It sets a stark English text by Dr Joseph Spence alongside Latin text from Psalm 130, with the words 'In memoriam' added. The lower parts sing Spence's English text, conveying the relentless hardship of life in the trenches with declamatory and constantly developing vocal lines. The sopranos, meanwhile, repeat the Latin words from Psalm 130, providing a striking contrast in their constancy and otherworldliness.
Following the outstanding success of book 1, Popular Voiceworks 2 is a second collection of jazzy and popular songs in the highly practical Voiceworks format. Packed with songs in a huge range of styles, the collection provides exciting new material written by the authors as well as choral arrangements of favourites such as 'Ain't no stoppin' us now', 'Feelin' good', and 'Bang the drum all day'. The accompanying CDs include stylish performances of all the songs, together with backings for most. This all adds up to a fabulous resource for all young and young-at-heart singing groups!
for SATB and organ or large orchestra This arrangement of the well-loved hymn stays true to the jubilation and reverence of Easter. Wesley's words and the eighteenth-century melody shine through in a sensitive reharmonization, and a recurring instrumental passage smoothly connects the verses. Reflecting common hymn-singing practice, the first verse is in unison, the second in four-part harmony, and the third returns to unison with a soprano descant, before closing with a suitably exultant 'Alleluia' and 'Amen'. Christ the Lord is risen today appears on the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square's latest CD, He is Risen, which reached No. 1 in both the 'Classical Albums' and 'Traditional Classical Albums' US charts within two weeks of its release in April 2014.
