This beautiful and significant revision to The Book of Canons is an incredible resource for music teachers - a sumptuously illustrated collection of more than 155 time-tested canons representing the absolute best music for children our culture has to offer.

The songs are drawn from all over the world, and many are by some of the great composers throughout history - after all, rounds and canons have been enjoyed since the Elizabethan era. Each canon in this collection is ranked by difficulty and includes a general translation if needed.

States John M. Feierabend in the introduction: Here then is a collection to meet many needs, sacred and secular, humorous and serious, major, minor, and modal, simple to complex...but above all, I hope you will find all of them musically satisfying.

John M. Feierabend is one of the leading authorities on music and movement development in early childhood. Dr. Feierabend is committed to collecting, preserving and teaching the diverse folk music of our country and using that folk music as a bridge to help children understand and enjoy classical music. He is a Professor of Music at The Hartt School of the University of Hartford.
