Rounds are wonderful ways to introduce harmony to young singers! However, traditional rounds are often too wide of a range for the changing voice, hence this collection was created with the young male voice in mind. Easy-to-sing ostinatos for the changing male voice accompany 10 familiar rounds sung by treble voices. Each round is presented in two keys to accommodate both the cambiata, mid-voice and new baritone range comfortably. Experiment with other keys until you find your choirs' "sweet spot" vocally. This will give you a good idea of the range and tessitura that will be effective when choosing your choral literature. These unaccompanied rounds may be taught entirely by ear, or duplicated for sight reading purposes. Songs include: Dona Nobis Pacem, Down by the Bay, Heigh Ho Nobody's Home, Jubilate Deo, London's Burning, Music Alone Shall Live, and more. Suggested for grades 6-9.
