This volume presents a wealth of invaluable, original repertoire for upper voice choirs. Many of the pieces collected in this volume are published here for the first time or have not enjoyed the same exposure as much of the mixed voice repertoire. The volume builds on the success of Faber music's 'Choral Programme Series', from which some of the pieces have been drawn. '30 Sacred Masterworks' encompasses many eras and offers both accompanied and unaccompanied pieces it forms a vibrant and versatile collection suitable for a variety of services and concerts through the year. This volume is an invaluable resource, both for upper voice choirs seeking new and inspiring repertoire as well as for mixed voice choirs who want to showcase the talent of their female singers. 10-packs are available and offer a significant cost saving.
