The chorissimo! Christmas choral collection contains varied and fresh repertoire for all kinds of singing occasions during Advent, Christmas, and wintertime. Its hallmark is its great stylistic variety, ranging from Christmas classics in modern arrangements, via spirituals, canons, and quodlibets to folk melodies from Europe and South America (mainly with German, English, and French texts). The 29 arrangements by leading composers and arrangers, experienced in the youth choir field, are extremely satisfying through their practicality, great singability, exciting rhythms, and changing tonal colors.

Scored for two to three upper voices (soprano, alto) and one male voice (often ad lib) and piano, the choral collection is tailor-made for young people and follows on from the well-established chorissimo! orange volume. Here too, the male voice part is specially arranged for young voices, and is clearly supported by the keyboard.

The choral director’s volume contains a selection of arrangements to get to know on CD, sung by members of the renowned Calmus Ensemble Leipzig. For rehearsing and independent practice, a piano playback and practice aids are available; a choral score and a separate piano part are available. 19 of the 29 arrangements also work without male voices.
