"Choral Basics" has set new standards in choral publishing. It offers straightforward and rewarding repertoire for beginner choirs of all ages in a dazzling array of styles including world music, spirituals, pop classics, show hits and original pieces. Each piece is carefully considered for the level by consultant editor Alexander L'Estrange and offers simple 2 or 3-part arrangements for soprano, alto (and a combined male voice part), paying particular attention to breathing, vocal ranges and technique whilst straightforward piano accompaniments support the vocal lines. The series offers unbeatable value for money, as each volume comprises a set of contrasting songs for easy programming.

Review:

Alexander L'Estrange is a great and innovative arranger, surely one of the best we have around. Pretty well all of his arrangements are worth singing. These three American folksong settings with piano are superb. Shenandoah is a joy to sing, as is Simple Gifts: a real treat. The final piece, Low-down on the Hoe-down is effectively a re-hash of an old Swingle Singers arrangement, Country Dances, for a more realistic number of voices. It's absolutely brilliant, so grab your stetson, hold on tight and sing it as fast as you can. Satisfaction guaranteed. Music Teacher, September 2008

Synopsis:

This volume is a toe-in-the-water introduction to some of the great and much loved American folksongs. Two individual songs are presented here, "Oh Shenandoah" and "Simple Gifts", which are complemented with a rip-roaring medley of light-hearted line dance tunes under the title "Low-down" and "Hoe-down". If you are looking for straightforward and rewarding repertoire for your beginner choir, then you need look no further than "Choral Basics" - the perfect series for singers of all ages.The Simple 3-part choral arrangements for soprano, alto and a combined part for men's voices make the series perfect for choirs with a dearth of males or whose male singers have unstable or changing voices. The rich array of repertoire is bound to be a hit with younger singers and the technical abilities of choirs at this level have been taken into consideration. Straightforward and idiomatic piano accompaniments have been included and are designed to support the vocal lines, without putting pressure on staff with less developed keyboard skills. "Choral Basics" are great value for money providing a contrasted set of arrangements for the end of term concert.
