The need to provide our students with exposure to the music of all of the world's cultures has never been greater. Lana Walter brings us the rhythmic work "Ning Wendete" for women's choir from Kenya. All of its authentic charms are captured in the rhythmic variation. A complete translation and pronunciation guide are provided. A new treatment for women's choir of the renowned Scottish air "Loch Lomond". Beautiful, flowing harmonies and solo opportunities combine to create a lush yet sensible setting of this classic folk favorite. Gentle flashes of 'Simple Gifts' add a grace and charm that make this a truly unique setting! Robert DeCormier's a cappella setting of the American folk melody "Wayfaring Stranger" has been part of the choral repertoire for many years. If you haven't performed this recently, do it now!
