What can you do on your own to improve your singing of choral selections?
Nowadays you don’t have to sit in front of your harpsichord and plunk out the notes from your music manuscript that’s been copied with a quill pen. There are all kinds of tools and resources available to you as a 21 st-century choir member, and I give you lots of ideas for enjoying the process as well as attaining a good result.
It’s an incredible privilege to sing with others, and the time spent preparing for that privilege is more than worthwhile. So dive in, see what’s out there, and perform with confidence.
This book will help you get there–and in less than 50 pages.
It’s maybe not so curious as to why the humble #seashanty has become so popular recently, since its origins lie in being typically performed to keep the spirits of seafarers high during their work and to keep synchronised for tasks like hoisting sails and pulling in fishing lines, when everyone needed to be unified in pushing or pulling together – which is pretty much how things are for us all now! We are lucky to have some wonderful arrangements of these #folkmusic classics in our catalogue, which we’ve pulled together into one place and made them available as PDF downloads as well as in printed form. One of our Male Voice Choir customers reported that they had a sing a long of some of them at their last online rehearsal and they did indeed serve to lift their spirits and bond them further together.
Better still, we’ve put 3 of Rosa Conrad’s most popular songs into a new money-saving anthology and its currently on offer! All the pieces are suitable for any set of voices so will suit male, female or mixed groups. And, for those who are using online rehearsals, downloads are actually pretty useful when you can’t get hard copies to people since you can share them to all your participants via your screen.
(Just to clarify – our download prices are one-off purchases which allow you to make unlimited copies, not per copy).
A seasonal offer for all to enjoy!

We’ve added some new downloads of #choralmusic to our #Christmas music section after several requests and also queries about whether #livestreaming of our pieces is allowed and free…. with the answer to both questions being ‘YES’.
So, if you are allowed or able to sing in a safe way, following all and any local restrictions due to Covid that you might be under in your area or country and wanting something quick and easy to learn then the Accessible Choral Library pieces ‘Love came down at Christmas’ and ‘On this day the earth shall ring’ for SAB, 2-part or 3-part choir are ideal… there are also unison pieces in the series which will also be made available as downloads.
Please just get in touch with any queries.
