Editor's Picks: Christmas Sheet Music Wishlist #1

  1. Thomas Tallis: Spem In Alium

A beautiful score of epic proportions, both literally and musically.

  1. Phil Collins: …Hits

What can I say, I’ve got a weakness for the man who can do everything  – write the them tune, play the theme tune, sing the theme tune and take part in the show!

  1. John Tavener: O Where, Tell Me Where? (Vocal Score)

These folk song settings by JT are dedicated to me, so of course, I’d like another copy. What a wonderful composer he was – he is still very much missed.

  1. Judith Weir: King Harald’s Saga

I’d like to give this one woman opera a go at some point, so perhaps I better get learning over the Christmas holidays…

  1. Richard Rodney Bennett and Marian Montgomery: Just Friends In Print

This is a great collection of songs by RRB and others – including one of my real favourites, ‘Let’s go and live in the country’, which one day I will perform in the style of Victoria Wood at Ronnie Scott’s, even if only in my dreams…!

  1. Family Christmas Songbook

Something with which to entertain my Godson!

  1. All SIXTEEN volumes of the Chester Book of Motets please – a great addition to any choral sheet music library
  1. Ralph Vaughan Williams: Symphony No.6 (Hardback Full Score)

A special request – it isn’t cheap but this is one of my favourite symphonies by Vaughan-Williams and I’d adore owning this beautiful hardback edition.

Herbert Howells: The ‘Three Choirs’ Services (Gloucester, Hereford, Worcester)
