Sea Song - a shanty for junior choir
Recently I had the pleasure of attending the "Back To School Day" run by KMEIA and VOSA and, as always, walked away with a heap of new songs, games and resources.
One of the finds I am most excited about is a choral work by the wonderful Ruth McCall and Nicole Thomson called "Sea Song".
It's written in Eb, the accompaniment is really straightforward and the piece contains a really easy secondary part which makes it perfect for choirs who are still quite new to part-singing.
You can hear Ruth giving a sample of the piece in the video below :
The music is available through SingScore.
I'm looking forward to introducing this to my junior choir in the coming weeks, as my love of shanties finally meets my love of well-written children's choral music.
