Betsy Sansby, who leads the One World Community Choir of Minnetonka, MN, has just produced the first in a set of work discs for community choir leaders. Each 60-70 minute disc contains all the parts to five or six a cappella songs from around the world. Cost: $15 plus shipping.
The first disc includes:
Kudekukuru (a spellbinding, 5-part rainforest chant, with optional rainstorm and drum track included).
Follow the Heron (a gorgeous, 3-part ballad by contemporary Scottish singer/songwriter, Karine Polwart).
Sail Away, Ladies (a rousing, 3-part Appalachian song from Kentucky dating back to the Civil War period)
Shosholoza (a 3-part miners’ song, masterfully arranged by the Drakensberg Boys Choir of South Africa)
Hold On Just a Little While Longer (an inpiring Negro Spiritual with non-religious lyrics. Includes optional solo track).
