Anthology for Advent

The creative team at Firehead is pleased to offer a collection of new works for parish musicians. This anthology includes anthems, organ works, music for handbells, and liturgical pieces especially selected for use in the Advent season.

Organists, choirmasters, and handbell choirs alike will find 12 attractive new pieces designed for parish musicians with more limited resources. If you are looking for well crafted music written by seasoned composers who have extensive experience in composing for amateur parish performers, this anthology is for you. Your choristers will love the chance to explore new sounds, and will find this distinctive repertoire to be achievable, memorable, and expressive as they contribute to the worship life of their communities.

The best part is that the entire collection is available for instant download at the incredibly reasonable price of just £20! Remember – this is a one-off payment licensing your choir to perform all these works – this represents a huge savings over individually purchased items and we hope you’ll take advantage of this offer soon.
