More Songs Of A Rainbow Nation (Mixed Voices)

Thumbnail 240

Voicings: SA/Men & piano

Accompaniment: Accompanied

More Songs of a Rainbow Nation brings you four more songs from South Africa for mixed voices, in beautifully crafted arrangements by Alexander L'Estrange. The selection opens with Freedom is Coming, a joyful, infectious celebration of hope and freedom from oppression, and the hugely popular Siyahamba is also featured. Both songs form part of L’Estrange's hit cantata Zimbe! Come sing the songs of Africa.
 
Part of the Choral Basics series, the four songs are arranged for soprano and alto with combined men's voices - ideal for beginner choirs and those in which the male singers are few or at the stage when their voices are changing. All Choral Basics publications feature a straightforward piano accompaniment to support the singers.

Alexander L'Estrange's arrangements in the Faber choral basics series... are, to combine political cliché and advertising slogan, entirely fit for purpose and do exactly what they say on the tin. The choral basics series is aimed at beginner choirs, with popular songs arranged in two or three parts, with effective and non-fussy piano accompaniments. [This volume] is pitched exactly right for that market: the vocal writing has enough contrast of unison, two-part and three-part textures, with occasional solos, and will work well for schools, youth choirs and adult singing groups.
