'This is a life-saver if you conduct a choir of the only-one-80-year-old-tenor or men-only-at-Christmas sort . . .' Music Teacher
Alan Bullard was born in London, and studied with Herbert Howells at the Royal College of Music, and at Nottingham University. He enjoyed a successful career in music education, most recently as Head of Composition at Colchester Institute, and is currently an examiner for ABRSM. He now devotes most of his time to composing, editing, and arranging. His music unfailingly appeals to both performers and audiences; he has written for all kinds of choirs, with instrumental works for a variety of ensembles and orchestras. Alan is also a respected writer of music for examination syllabuses and educational albums. His major publications include the inspirational Oxford Book of Flexible Anthems and Oxford Book of Flexible Carols, Alan Bullard Carols, and Alan Bullard Anthems, and the three cantatas Wondrous Cross, O Come Emmanuel, and A Light in the Stable. He and his wife Janet also write the Pianoworks series for the older beginner.
I do recommend this book very highly to organists and choirmasters of all levels, for OUP's eollection has something for everybody and at the price is a real bargain. It can genuinely claim to be "a complete resource for every church choir". The Organ, March 08 ... the groups that will benefit most from this book are the myriad parish church and school choirs up and down the country who often struggle for numbers or voice parts ... this is a life-saver if you conduct a choir of the only-one-80-year-old-tenor or men-only-at-Christmas sort ... This book will surely become a staple for choirs throughout the country. Jonathan Wikeley, Music Teacher March 08 The main question with this book is why no one has thought to do this before ... This is a book that could transform your choir's repertoire and is well worth the GBP12.95. OUP should be congratulated. Jonathan Wikeley, The Singer, June 06
