New Music for Two-part Choirs

Here are some new two-part pieces for your spring concert consideration!

How Doth the Little CrocodileHow Doth the Little Crocodile
Mark Burrows

A delightful musical interpretation of the beloved Lewis Carroll poem, this piece is easy to put together and is an excellent choice for a choir's first experience with part-singing. The catchy melody transitions to a round in two or three parts, giving you practical options for your beginning choirs.

Full of stylistic variety and tonal color, this piece includes a positive message about how imagination and forward thinking sets us free to accomplish great things. I'm riding the tail of a comet, floating through new galaxies. If you're looking for me, you'll find me taking my place among the stars.

Artful tonal shifts with a splendid modulation grace this effective piece for young voices that features a meaningful text reflecting on how we all play a part in spreading joy and goodwill as we each make a difference in building a better world.
