Following the success of their 2006 tenth anniversary commissions, singbronze, singsilver and singgold, the National Youth Choir of Scotland has, for a second time, commissioned each of ten composers with a strong Scottish connection to write three songs.
The songs are suitable for young people to sing and meet certain criteria of range, rhythm and pitch. The Bronze song is pentatonic, the Silver song is diatonic with no accidentals and the Gold song is diatonic with accidentals. Once again the composers have responded with fascinating songs in a variety of interesting styles, with suitable and stimulating texts.
Singgold! songs are diatonic, with simple accidentals. Choral scores contain Voice parts only. Vocal scores contain Voice parts and Piano accompaniment.
