This volume is a toe-in-the-water introduction to some of the great and much loved American folksons. Two individual songs are presented here, Oh Shenandoah and Simple Gifts, which are complemented with a rip-roaring medley of liight-hearted line dance tunes under the title Low-down and Hoe-down.If you are looking for straightforward and rewarding repertoire for your beginner choir, then you need look no further than Choral Basics - the perfect series for singers of all ages. The Simple 3-part choral arrangements for soprano, alto and a combined part for men’s voices make the series perfect for choirs with a dearth of males or whose male singers have unstable or changing voices. The rich array of repertoire is bound to be a hit with younger singers and the technical abilities of choirs at this level have been taken into consideration. Straightforward and idiomatic piano accompaniments have been included and are designed to support the vocal lines, without putting pressure on staff with less developed keyboard skills. Choral Basics are great value for money providing a contrasted set of arrangements for the end of term concert.
