These eleven masterwork and madrigal selections have been carefully selected to meet the needs of developing choirs and the changing voice. Encompassing a broad spectrum of composers, styles and periods, and in a variety of voicings, this exciting new edition is a practical and versatile resource for the middle school/junior high choral classroom. Also featured, where applicable, are both English and original language text options, as well as interesting composer/performance notes. It's all here in this outstanding collection, for less than half the cost of the individual chorals it contains-a welcome budget stretcher! And don't forget the accompaniment CD, a valuable tool for rehearsals as well as performances.
