The Oxford Choral Classics series gathers together over 300 of the world's choral masterpieces into a unique set of anthologies spanning the whole of Western choral literature. Each volume contains all the established classics of its genre under one cover, in authoritative new editions and at a price that gives fabulous value for money.
Gathered in this volume are some of the finest motets and related pieces for the season of Christmas. Christmas Motets provides a superb choice of pieces for all choirs looking for something new. John Rutter has prepared completely new editions of all the pre-twentieth-century works, going back to the earliest and most reliable manuscript or printed sources. There are new English singing translations, and playable keyboard reductions in every case. Some items from this volume are available separately as leaflets in the Oxford Choral Classics Octavo series.
