Bring a Torch, Jeannette Isabella Traditional French Carol, arranged by Dave & Jean Perry
SSA, a cappella (optional piano)
One of the most well-known French carols, Bring a Torch, Jeannette Isabella may be performed with or without accompaniment, depending on the needs of the ensemble. If performed accompanied, the lilting nature of 6/8 meter couples effectively with the light, transparent nature of the piano part. A necessary addition to any holiday concert.
Schram captures the essence of the season’s meaning through text that is sure to speak to any treble choir. Accompanied, this age-appropriate festive selection will add a special sparkle to any holiday concert.
BriLee Music is thrilled to have acclaimed composer Patti Drennan join our catalog. Fresh, exultant and accessible to its intended range, A Festive Gloria is sure to hit the mark with your SSA choir. The energy never subsides, from the moment the piano introduction announces “Gloria in excelsis Deo” until the final “in Gloria.” Appropriate for concert and festival use throughout the year.
Arranged for a cappella SSA choirs, this popular children’s song unfolds through story telling in 6/8 meter. It builds to the climax in the manner of Russian nesting dolls and is pure fun for the choir.

My Heart Sings: Solo Songs for the Developing Treble Voice
Compiled, Composed and Arranged by Mark Patterson
Book and CD – $24.95
Let Nature Sing is the fifth in a series of solo song volumes for young singers. This volume contains a variety of styles ranging from spirituals to folks songs and original pieces, written or arranged by female composers well-known for their understanding and sensitivity to the needs of the developing treble voice.
This book, like the rest of the series, presents well-calculated vocal challenges of range and expression, while building a beautifully wrought repertoire for the young singer.
My Heart Sings has songs for the developing treble voice with narrow ranges of six and seven notes; there are others that expand the range as the voice develops and matures. The nature of the songs is to challenge the voice, not to tax it, to develop its expressive capabilities, not to over-extend it. We hope you enjoy this volume of solo songs.
Originally written for unison treble voices, Mark Patterson’s original, imaginative text lends inspiration to beautiful harmonies contained within. Laden with opportunities to explore text painting and appropriate syllabic stress, this gorgeous arrangement is appropriate for concert or festival use. Also available for unison/opt 2-part voices (BL528) and SATB voices (BL581).
Set to a poem by Charles D’Orleans, Janet Gardner’s a cappella SSA setting in 6/8 meter is joyful! Melodious and lilting with ranges appropriate for the developing adolescent singer, this is a helpful repertoire addition to any concert program.
