Note About the 2nd Edition of “Twenty-five Anthems”
This second edition still includes twenty-one of the twenty-five arrangements that were in the first edition.
- There is a new piano/SATB arrangement of “The Solstice Song”.
- My arrangements of “My Old Friend” and Mary Alice’s “Sonnet” are no longer in this collection.
- May arrangement of “Love Me Tender” has also been removed from the 2nd edition, but is available at AmidonChoralMusic.com.
- We have replaced these songs with my arrangements of “Gate of Sweet Nectar” and “How Can I Keep from Singing”, and with my arrangement of Mary Alice’s setting of Edith Newlin Chase’s poem “Still There Is Love.”
- We are planning no further changes of songs in our “Twenty-five Anthems” collection.
- Any future new arrangements that might have lived comfortably in this book will be dwelling instead in our Online Choral Store (which also includes most of the arrangements in this book).
