Quick Overview

These short choral gems are a fantastic way to introduce and teach the church modes to choirs of all skill levels. From Ladybug to The Universe, Montoya's clever accompaniment clearly accentuates the mood of each unique movement. Directors need not feel compelled to perform all 6 in one concert, as they can be grouped to suit the needs of the choir. Have fun!
