“Whether used as a teaching resource<br />

or for performance, it should exp<strong>and</strong><br />

imaginations <strong>and</strong> start to address the<br />

Equally important, there is some<br />

stunning music to sing which will be<br />

enjoyed by youth <strong>and</strong> adult choirs<br />

alike.“ Choir & Organ, May 2023<br />
