  • June 05, 2012 King's Singers Book of Rounds, et. al.

    I was having some friends over to read madrigals and thought rounds would be a good complement. This wonderful collection has both simple and complex examples of the form, historical and newer tunes. A handful I remembered from my days at music camp and wished to revisit. Others touched memories...

    for my fellow amateurs singers. We had a grand time.

  • February 27, 2008 Lots of fun for everyone.

    The book was full of rounds I've known most of my life. Now, I want to adapt some of them for harp playing with L hand - or another harp- playing the second voice. It would be great for a group of harps to each take a voice and play...
