Brenda Rattray is an inspirational facilitator who can instill confidence in budding singers and remove inhibitions from those who consider themselves unable to sing. She also challenges and stimulates more confident singers with unconventional methods and ideas. Brenda works in nurseries, schools, hospitals, prisons and churches as well as with The BBC Singers, English National Opera and Youth Music, and is the composer of ´The smile behind the eyes´ from Singbook. The Joy of Singing is for children, young people and adults in primary schools, secondary schools, youth groups and churches who would like to build a singing community. Whether musician or non-specialist, the 21 songs in this collection will bring variety and confidence to any choir. There are unison songs through simple part-singing to songs with four or more parts; arrangements of well-known spirituals Rocka My Soul, Wade In The Water, Kumbayah and Swing Low, Sweet Chariot; and original songs in a range of styles, including African and gospel influences. Detailed teaching notes on each song, including discussion points and extension activities are included. Citizenship and PSHE themes are also covered, making the material ideal for Key Stage 2-3 (Scottish P3-S2+). Audio backing and performance tracks are included on the 2 CDs, as well as a PDF of lyrics on the Enhanced CD for easy printing/projection.
Folk music is more than an idealized reminder of a simpler past. It reveals a great deal about present-day understandings of community and belonging. It celebrates the shared traditions that define a group or nation. In America, folk music - from African-American spirituals to English ballads and protest songs - renders the imagined community more tangible and comprises a critical component of our diverse national heritage. In ´´I Hear America Singing´´, Rachel Donaldson traces the vibrant history of the 20th-century folk music revival from its origins in the 1930s through its end in the late 1960s. She investigates the relationship between the revival and concepts of nationalism, showing how key figures in the revival - including Pete Seeger, Alan Lomax, Moses Asch, and Ralph Rinzler - used songs to influence the ways in which Americans understood the values, the culture, and the people of their own nation. 1.

DescriptionIncludes Four CDsIndividuals, friends, choirs, church, camp and community groups of any background will enjoy participating in this uplifting singing tradition. Ysaye M. Barnwell, a charter member of the great a cappella group, Sweet Honey in the Rock, teaches melodies, harmonies, rhythms and counter-melodies to 17 traditional songs from African American culture, including spirituals, hymns, gospels and songs from the Civil Rights Movement.The CD´s in this series contain songs which were originally taught in the context of a 5 day workshop. In a workshop, often having between 40 and 60 people, songs are taught without printed music or printed words, and without pitch pipes or musical instruments other than those which help create and maintain the rhythmic foundation and intensity of the songs. This method of passing on knowledge is very much in the oral/aural tradition. Here, for the sake of clarity, the words to all the songs have been provided, but the music itself is presented in the form of an oral/aural score which must be listened to.
