Following the success of our 2006 10th anniversary commissions, SingBronze, SingSilver and SingGold, we, for a second time, commissioned ten composers, each with a strong Scottish connection, to write three songs.
The songs are suitable for young people to sing and meet certain criteria of range, rhythm and pitch. Once again, the composers have responded with fascinating songs in a variety of interesting styles, with suitable and stimulating texts.
SingGold 2 songs are diatonic, with simple accidentals.
Vocal and piano parts included.
Part of the Singbronze, Singsilver, Singgold series.
The songs in our Sing books range are suitable for young people to sing and meet certain criteria of range, rhythm and pitch. Each of the composers who contributed to these books have created fascintating songs in a variety of interesting styles, with suitable and stimulating texts.
This CD provides piano accompaniment for all songs from our Singbronze 2, Singsilver 2 and Singgold 2 books.
The partnership of great melody and strong words makes songs very memorable, and the idea of learning and absorbing important aspects of history through song is a powerful one.
In this short cantata, I Landed with Seven Men, five Scots songs associated with Bonnie Prince Charlie and the Jacobite rebellion are placed in their historical context with short narrations.
These well known songs can be performed in any combination in their own right, with new arrangements by Ken Johnston, or performed as a whole with narration to make a 20-minute concert piece.
Johnnie Cope is a brand new setting, and the other four pieces use the recognised traditional tunes.
Arranged for unison voices with optional 2nd part. Piano part not included.
