Kensington Choralworks specializes in new settings of poems, hymns, and folksongs culled from the treasure trove of musical and literary classics. In so doing, we hope to foster a greater appreciation of music, literature and history. We also strive to present works of lasting quality and high choral standards, primarily for ensembles of masterful abilities.

LATEST NEWS

The Los Angeles Master Chorale records our edition of
"Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas!"

On their first holiday album in nearly twenty years, the Los Angeles Master Chorale has released a delightful array of Christmas favorites, old and new, of which Ken Neufeld's arrangement is one. (Ken was fortunate enough to have his setting of "The Lamb" included on that previous CD, as well!) These performances, under Grant Gershon's splendid direction, come from holiday concerts recorded live at the Walt Disney Concert Hall. For more information---including song excerpts, visit the LAMC website.
Now: Complete Sound Files!
We originally thought brief audio selections would be enough for you to get a feel for pieces in our catalog. But over the years, we learned that you'd like to hear longer samples of the music---and in most cases, you'd prefer the entire work! In response, we have, indeed, added complete recordings (where they exist). So, wherever you see eighth notes (♫) following a title, in our catalog, you now have the opportunity to savor a full-length recording of that work. ...ENJOY!
Find a FREE gift in our music library!
If you'd like a lovely, brief benediction for use in religious services or related events, go to our catalog and take a look at "A Parting Blessing" (second listing under sacred SATB). It's a perfect 4-part, a cappella choral response to closing prayers/dismissals, as well as a farewell prayer for friends leaving your congregation. Download it right from the catalog page---for FREE!
J. W. Pepper & Sons continue to carry Kensington Choralworks titles
Our arrangement with the Fred Bock Music Company (with distribution through Hal Leonard) ended in 2012. Since the Pepper catalog includes Hal Leonard listings, we were available there---and we still are! Our thanks to J. W. Pepper & Sons for continuing to share our music.
