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.
SingSilver 2 songs are diatonic, with no accidentals.
- My Cat Dreams (Sally Beamish)
- Bogle Boogie (Tom Cunningham)
- The Circus (Stephen Deazley)
- Witch's Song (John Maxwell Geddes)
- Laying Down the Laws of Motion (John Hearne)
- Portrait of a House (Ken Johnston)
- Dreaming (David Paul Jones)
- Before I Went to Bed (Alasdair Nicolson)
- I Once Went a-Courting (Sheena Phillps)
- On a Summer Night (Oliver Iredale Searle)
Vocal and piano parts included.
