(Grades 2-6) · Folk Songs from Canada and Mexico arranged for Young Voices
In this accessible multicultural collection, best-selling composer/arranger Greg Gilpin turns his attention to folk songs from Canada and Mexico. Some are familiar, others might be brand new to the singer, teacher or listener, and all are well crafted for young singers and will be a wonderful addition to your classroom or concert program. A marvelous budget-stretcher, this book includes vocal/piano scores and pertinent musical information about the countries and songs, along with a mixed-media CD that includes the performance and accompaniment tracks as well as reproducible vocal parts.
