The Oxford Book of Flexible Carols is the perfect resource for choirs of all types and sizes. Each piece is presented with flexible scoring options, clearly explained throughout, enabling performance by various combinations of singers. With carols for Advent, Christmas, New Year, and Epiphany, and a fabulous range of accessible, quality material, this is a must-have collection for all choirs at Christmas.

Alan Bullard

Alan Bullard was born in London and studied with Herbert Howells at the Royal College of Music, and at Nottingham University. He enjoyed a successful career in music education; for many years he was Head of Composition at Colchester Institute, and is currently an examiner for ABRSM. He now devotes most of his time to composing, editing, and arranging. His music unfailingly appeals to both performers and audiences; he has written for all kinds of choirs, and instrumental works for a variety of ensembles and orchestras. Alan is a respected writer of music for examination syllabuses and educational albums. His major publications include the four inspirational Oxford Flexible Choral Anthologies, Alan Bullard Anthems, and the five cantatas Wondrous Cross, O Come Emmanuel, A Light in the Stable, Psalmi Penitentiales, and Images of Peace. He and his wife Janet also write the Pianoworks series for the older beginner.

I reviewed The Oxford Book of Flexible Anthems a number of months ago and welcomed it with open arms. The carol book is equally welcome, and a must-buy for choirs who don't know the size of their forces from one week to the next, or the sort of choir that only gets men for Christmas, as it were ... What you get here is a generous selection of well-known favourites in easy (and of course flexible) arrangements ... and a fine sprinkling of new pieces, most of which are highly original and interesting. By no means is this book just for small amateur choirs: there is much for all in its 279 pages. Music Teacher, October 2009 It clearly embraces a wide range of choral abilities and voice permutations and will doubtless appeal to choirs and choir trainers of many stripes.
