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.
Choral Basics is a recently created series that offers straightforward and rewarding repertoire for the beginner choir. Perfect for singers of all ages, the series offers simple 3-part choral arrangements for soprano, alto and a combined male voice part. Consultant editor Alexander L'Estrange has brought together an array of repertoire including world music, spirituals, pop classics, show hits and original pieces. Carefully considered for the level, the arrangements pay particular attention to breathing, vocal ranges and technique whilst straightforward piano accompaniments support the vocal lines.
