This edition of Classic Choruses for Young voices contains unison and two-part arrangements based on the choral works by Handel, Vivaldi, Mendelssohn, Stainer, Franck and Dubois. Created by Tim Sharp and Vernon Whaley. The introduction by the publishers (Integra) states that their mission is to provide opportunities for young singers to experience music of great value. The music must be child centered. The arrangements have been transposed from the original key to allow young voices to sing within their comfortable range. Arrangements also rely on repetition of lines, restricted ranges, tessitura and rhythmic treatment, responsorial singing and canonic imitation, unison and two-part voicing. There are informative lessons included to supplement the choir rehearsals. The lessons are provided so the children should understand the purpose for which each chorus was written, identify important historical aspects of the composers, identify major characteristics of the stylistic periods and better understand performance practices common to the choral medium. 58 pages, octavo size paperback, copyright 1993 by Integra Music Corp. This book is in near mint, unused condition. The spine is not broken in, no creases, tears or writing. Excellent resource for teachers and choirmasters for youth chorus.

I regret that I recently had to raise my shipping fee, due to moving much farther from the local post office, but I still try to get it into the post office the next day.
Shipping fees are a pain, but it requires a good deal more time than you might expect, not to mention envelopes, sleeves, taping and cutting cardboard to keep your purchase safe through transport. I recycle cardboard so I have to cut it by hand which is laborious but I like the stiffness of cardboard boxes as opposed to the flimsy stuff you might usually see.
