A Christmas Special comprises a collection of four joyful songs exploring the ‘lighter’ side of Christmas.

Three classic songs and one newly composed, arranged for soprano, alto and combined men's voices with a straightforward piano accompaniment - ideal for beginner choirs and for choirs in which the male singers are few or at the stage when their voices are changing. Songs include: Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas, Jingle Bells, O Christmas Tree and a crowd-pleasing original by Alexander L’Estrange and Peter Gritton, Another Christmas.

The songs form part of the Choral Basics Series, which has been carefully designed to provide rewarding, varied repertoire for beginner choirs. Perfect for singers of all ages, the series offers attractive, idiomatic arrangements for SA and SAMen choirs, with carefully considered vocal ranges and straightforward piano accompaniments that support the singers. Embracing world music, spirituals, folk song, pop classics, hit shows and original pieces, this series offers everything a budding choir could wish for.

Last, but not least, comes A Christmas Special; a collection of secular Christmas songs, as part of Faber's Choral Basics series: Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, O Christmas Tree, Jingle Bells and a new song: Another Christmas. All four are written for soprano, alto and combined male voice part, and the music couldn't be simpler. The arrangements are straightforward, effective and suitably slushy (but not too much!), and have been very carefully put together. ... Overall, a good choice for those needing a few light-hearted numbers for the end of their Christmas concert.
