Traditional Folksongs from the British Isles

There is a very deep and rich history of traditional vocal harmony singing throughout the British Isles and which has also been exported over the centuries to influence folk music in many other English speaking countries. Many of these songs are still very much being sung today and will be a part of choral ensembles repertoire for generations to come.

Alexander L'Estrange : Danny Boy and Other Classic Irish Melodies : SAB : Songbook : 9780571521906 : 12-0571521908

Alexander L'Estrange : Danny Boy and Other Classic Irish Melodies

The Irish have long been famed for their powerful traditional melodies, and three in this volume are surely amongst the finest. 'Danny Boy' (the melody of which is also known as 'Londonderry Air') was first published, without a title, in 1855. The words most commonly associated with it were written by an Englishman who apparently never set foot in Ireland! 'The lark in the clear air' is an exquisite song celebrating the beauty of nature. The poignant words of 'The last rose of summer' match the song's mournful, drooping melody.

Songlist: Danny Boy, The Lark In the Clear Air, The Last Rose of Summer

Alexander L'Estrange : Auld Lang Syne : SAB : Book : 9780571523474 : 12-0571523471

Alexander L'Estrange : Auld Lang Syne

The arrangement of the title song. Auld Lang Syne is a bit of a show-stopper with several other Scottish melodies woven in, and this is complemented by a beautiful adaptation of perhaps Scotland's most famous melody, The Skye Boat Song. The final song within this collection is Afton Water, first published or collected by Robbie Burns, the great Scottish poet - it is a gentle, lyrical hymn of praise both to the countryside and to Scotland itself.

Carsten Gerlitz : The Celtic Choirbook : SATB : 01 Songbook : 841886004702 : 3795757746 : 49015702

Carsten Gerlitz : The Celtic Choirbook

Celtic music is enjoying a well-deserved revival. This revival may have been inspired by historical Hollywood epics, by popular dance acts such as "Riverdance", by Michael Flatley or purely by the emotional power of Celtic melodies. The songs all tell stories that have been passed down through successive generations, with more facets than any other kind of traditional music: some are melancholy dirges, some playful and lively dance tunes. This book brings together 20 of these traditional melodies in contemporary, modern arrangements for mixed chorus. In them you will find homophonic movements, sweeping melodic lines, vocal imitations of Celtic instruments and rousing rhythms. The irresistible charm of this music will leave no choral singer unmoved and is bound to find favour with audiences.

Songlist: Londonderry Air, Auld Lang Syne, Amazing Grace, Early One Morning, Lullaby, Dacw "Nghariad I Lawr Yn Y Berllan, Carrickfergus, Sally Gardens, Will Ye Go, Lassie, Go?, Whiskey In The Jar, An Irish Blessing, Riverdance, All Through The Night, Gin A Body, Believe Me, Scarbourough Fair, Greensleeves, The First Noel, Botany Bay, The Wild Rover

Edward-Rhys Harry : A Welsh Prayer : TTBB : Songbook : 888680748883 : 00263194

Edward-Rhys Harry : A Welsh Prayer

A Welsh Prayer, in the original version for SATB choir and two harps, was commissioned by Holywell Music and the North Wales International Music Festival as a gift to celebrate the 65th birthday of His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales. The beautiful words, written especially for this anthem by Dr Grahame Davies - one of Wales's most outstanding poets - reflect the long life of service and dedication to the nation that the Prince has tirelessly undertaken throughout his life. The piece was premiered by the Aberdeen University Chamber Choir with harpists Hannah Stone and Catrin Finch, conducted by the composer on 22 September 2013 at St Asaphs Cathedral as part of the North Wales International Music Festival. This version, arranged for male voice choir by Edward-Rhys Harry, was first performed by the massed choirs of the 25th London Welsh Festival of Male Choirs, accompanied by the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama Symphony Orchestra, at the Royal Albert Hall on 15 October 2016 directed by Edward-Rhys Harry.

Hilary Tann : Wales, Our Land (Cymru, ein gwlad) : SATB : Songbook : 9780193867451 : 9780193867451

Hilary Tann : Wales, Our Land (Cymru, ein gwlad)

Wales, Our Land was composed during late summer 2002 in response to a commission from the Welsh Heritage Program at Green Mountain College, Vermont. This lilting, beautiful choral work sets text by an unknown Welsh-American slate quarryman which speaks of the poet's love of his country of origin, perhaps, even, his longing to return. It is this sense of longing for the homeland (in Welsh, hiraeth) which infuses the composition. The work is sung in English but the words "Wales, our land," may be substituted for the three recurring Welsh words, "Cymru, ein gwlad."

"Loch Lomond" is one of the most famous of all Scottish song - a song of friendship, of love, and of parting. While "Auld Lang Syne" has become one of the most familiar in our culture, oft used for ushering in the new year, it remains a heartfelt air, extolling enduring friendship and waxing nostalgic over the passage of time. "The Birks Of Aberfeldy" is a dance piece! Let the rhythm and accents hold sway as the piano rolics and the singers tease, tempt, cajole and invite the Bonnie Lassie! Also Included in this package is the hauntingly beautiful "Skye Boat Song," and "Afton Water."

Percy M. Young (editor) : The English Glee : SATB : 01 Songbook : 0193437538

Percy M. Young (editor) : The English Glee

In the period between the deaths of Handel and Mendelssohn, the glee was the vehicle by which secular part-singing was carried in England. The form is descended from the madrigal, with texts chosen partly in reaction against the vulgarity of the catch. This new history of the glee begins with an introductory essay detailing the form's historical, musical, and social context. Young has selected twenty-six settings, mainly in four parts but with examples in three and five parts, to show the breadth of the glee in its heyday. A unique feature of the form, and of this collection, is the high literary quality of the text and the high musical quality of the settings. This fine new volume is an essential addition to the choral repertory, and is uniform with the other indispensable Oxford classic choral collections: English Romantic Partsongs, The Oxford Book of English Madrigals, The Oxford Book of French Chansons, The Oxford Book of Italian Madrigals, and The Catch Book.

Songlist: The Love Rapture , Death's Final Conquest, The Rose, The Poor Soul Sat Sighing, Thyrsis, When He Left Me, Hark, The Lark, Susanna And The Two Elders, Long May Live My Lovely Hetty, Lady Anne Bothwell's Lament, Ring Out Ye Crystal Spheres, The Nightingale, Take, O Take Those Lips Away, Slow, Slow, Fresh Fount, O Poesy, Here In Cool Grot, Hail!

The text probably appeals more to the middle/high school level than children's choirs anyway, and the musical setting maintains the expected excellence that has made their editions so popular.
