Christmas Canticles: a new 20-minute work for SATB Choir, soloists and piano
Date: July 24, 2014
Hello fellow Conductors and Music Directors,
As your plans for the Advent/Christmas season start to take shape, I would ask you to consider my new composition, “Christmas Canticles”.
The 4-movement work is written for SATB choir (some divisi, especially in 4th movement), 3 soloists, and piano.
I’ve included a link to the video recording I made with my choir at First UMC of Phoenix in December 2013.
As you will hear in the recording, the piece is quite accessible for a church choir of moderate size and skill.
If you have a chance to take a listen and give it some thought, I would really appreciate it!
For a PDF of the work, email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
In His Service,
Joshua Ian Elder
