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.
