A great opportunity for leaders and members of choirs and music groups of all sizes and denominations to add to their versatility and resources.

Following the success of The Oxford Book of Flexible Anthems, Alan Bullard has now edited The Oxford Book of Easy Flexible Anthems a vital resource for all churches. This collection caters for church choirs of all types and sizes, enabling them to have at their fingertips, easy music for every occasion. The collection presents flexibility in a constructive and realistic way, with particular provision for unison or two-part singing, whilst not forgetting SATB choirs.

With complete coverage of the Church’s year, a fabulous range of accessible, quality material and a focus too on ease of learning and performance.

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 and most recently as Head of Composition at Colchester Institute. He now devotes most of his time to composing, editing and arranging. His music unfailingly appeals to both performers and audiences and he has written for all kinds of choirs, with instrumental works for a variety of ensembles and orchestras. Alan is also a respecter writer of music for examination syllabuses and educational albums. As well as the inspirational Oxford Book of Flexible Anthems and Oxford Book of Flexible Carols, his major publications include Alan Bullard Carols, 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.
