So Let Us Sing!
Commissioned for the 2017 Australian National Choral Association (ANCA) ChoralFest, this inspirational work for SAB choir features a legato verse and refrain providing young singers with the opportunity to sing full phrases in legato style. After the second refrain, the piece moves into a gospel-style call and response section giving opportunities for small group or soloists to be featured. Building to a strong gospel ending, So Let Us Sing! is a perfect selection for speech and award nights, graduation services and choral concerts of all kinds. Optional drum kit and string bass parts, available.
The Birch Tree
This arrangement of the Russian folk song features unison and two-part canon singing – perfect for young choirs.

The “lu-li” refrain evokes the sound of the wind through the trees – the piece finishes with the singers swaying like the trees in the forest as they make whooshing wind noises – an effective and dramatic ending to this poignant arrangement.
