In response to repeated requests over the last several years, Dan has transcribed ten of his choral anthems most frequently requested as vocal solos, in a new vocal collection, Sacred Solos of Dan Forrest, now available from Beckenhorst Press.
The collection will be available in three voicings: high, medium, and low voice. Additionally, accompaniment CDs will be available for all three books, performed by Dan- so you can (somewhat) literally have the composer accompanying!
The collection will be available from Beckenhorst Press, or from your favorite retailer.
