        Black Children

        #MM 0901

        Suitable for elementary or high school use. The score is a blueprint which simply indicates basic material with which the choir can work. The choir and conductor are encouraged to make major decisions concerning their performance and the result is lots of fun!

        Foolin’ A-Round

        #MM 1012

        A delightful set of rounds for students in lower primary grades and upwards. These can be interpreted in the traditional way but Chris suggests many contemporary possibilities for each round. This publication includes a licensing agreement for copying within a single institution.

        Kumbargung

        #MM 0902

        One of the easiest and most immediately appealing from Stephen Leek’s In Construction series. It is suitable for singers of all ages and uses indigenous Australian words that are spoken in rhythm at various pitch levels. “Kumbargung” means “night” and other evocative words include “ungi gungi” (grasshopper) and “goolay yali” (pelican). A delight for all ages!

        Riawanna

        #MM 0903

        “Riawanna” is an Australian native word for “circles” and the piece is a do-it-yourself round with thousands of possibilities. It includes mixed meters. The final instruction in the accompanying notes says it all: “have fun”.

        The sound file is by Eltham East Primary School Choir’s CD Sea Shapes, conducted by Anne Williams.

        When The Sleepy Man Comes

        #MM 1014

        A delightful choral piece for junior choristers aged six to nine. The three stanzas of this song feature graceful singable lines in a classical style. Highly recommended for a choir’s first competition.
