We offer tens of thousands of arrangements and so to make it easier for you to find the right song we have had great fun selecting arrangements that fit into certain specialty categories. We have Disney songs, TV theme songs, movie songs along with great artists such as The Beatles and the Motown groups. You will find some great stuff here!

A round (also called a perpetual canon or infinite canon) is a musical composition, a limited type of canon, in which a minimum of three voices sing exactly the same melody at the unison (and may continue repeating it indefinitely), but with each voice beginning at different times so that different parts of the melody coincide in the different voices, but nevertheless fit harmoniously together. It is one of the easiest forms of part singing, as only one line of melody need be learned by all parts, and is part of a popular musical tradition.
