(Schott). What choral conductor or soloist has not looked around for new ideas for warming up the voice? Here are 200 suggestions all at once! These creative exercises do more than just warm up the voice: they help to relax the body, train the ear and develop an awareness of dynamics and rhythm. Klaus Heizmann's collection is a wonderful new resource of ideas and techniques: practical, varied, challenging, relaxing and stimulating. I am always looking for new ideas, as I like to use a different set of warm-ups at every rehersal with my choirs, and I tend to choose specific exercises to suit the repertoire for the day. This collection gives us 200 excellent "tools-of-the-trade"; they are clearly lebeled, intelligently set out, well-designed and extremely useful.

English romantic partsongs

There are many misinformed opinions about nineteenth-century England, but some of the more regrettable ones concern music, where the use of the word 'Victorian' is still usually pejorative. In most cases any such opinion is a received one-relatively few people have actually listened to more than a few fragments of 'Victoriana' though the tendency to ridicule the style and much that its period apparently represents may seem natural to anyone performing it today. Yet if the practice of 'early music' teaches us one thing, it should be to approach the music of the past on its own terms and with reference to the cultural climate that nurtured it.

Ash Wednesday to Easter for Choirs

This collection aims to provide a comprehensive survey of a highly significant part of the Christian Year: Ash Wednesday and Lent, Passiontide, Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter. Its contents span all musical periods of what is a marvellously rich area of church music and it contains much that is not widely available elsewhere under one cover. Ash Wednesday to Easter for Choirs includes a number of less familiar works together with new or recent arrangements of well-known tunes, such as Philip Ledger's 'This joyful Eastertide', Simon Lindley's 'Now the green blade riseth', and Bob Chilcott's setting of 'Were you there?'. Some of the anthems, for example Richard Shephard's 'Sing, my tongue' and Grayston Ives' 'Ride on', have been newly commissioned specifically for this collection, thus filling certain gaps. Wherever possible new practical performing editions of 16th-century repertoire have been prepared, reflecting current scholarship and including an English singing translation and, where, the original had none, a dynamic scheme. Such dynamics are the editors' suggestions only and may be freely ignored or adapted. Note values have in some instances been halved. Unaccompanied items include keyboard reductions for rehearsal.
