A collection of short, jazzy and bluesy canons (with a hint of latin here and there) for classroom use, community singing, choirs or small groups of singers.
Fun, easy to learn and progressing from very simple (manageable at roughly Keystage 2) to more challenging, these canons have been successfully trialled in numerous voice workshops involving both children’s choirs and groups of adults.
The collection features the ever-popular “Blue Brother Jake”, performed by massed children’s choirs for the NAPE Festival of Voices at London’s Wembley Arena.
