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.
- Cat: A List (Sally Beamish)
- Up in the Morning Early (Tom Cunningham)
- The Ears of Mr. Tuer (Stephen Deazley)
- The Battle o' Langside (John Maxwell Geddes)
- There's a Bully in my Locker (John Hearne)
- Holyrood (Ken Johnston)
- Thou Gloomy December (David Paul Jones)
- One Day Upon the Hill (Alasdair Nicolson)
- The Contest of the Holly and the Ivy (Sheena Phillps)
- Swans on the Wing (Oliver Iredale Searle)
Vocal and piano parts included.
