Songs Of A Rainbow Nation (Mixed Voices)

Books | SAB, Piano Accompaniment

Publisher: Faber Music
Series: Choral Basics
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work
Songs Of A Rainbow Nation comprises four great songs from South Africa arranged for soprano, alto and combined men's voices with a straightforward piano accompaniment - ideal for beginner choirs and for choirs in which the male singers are few or at the stage when their voices are changing.

Included are: Hamba Lulu - a wedding song with a gentle, comforting rhythm; Jesu Ukukhanya - featuring a call-and-response structure where a simple solo line is followed by a choral answer; Si Njay, Njay, Njay - a joyfully exuberant song with an infectious rhythm which can also be performed a cappella with some optional percussion for greater effect; and Weeping - a South African pop song from the band Bright Blue which uses as its chorus the refrain from the Zulu anthem N’kosi Sikeleli Africa (God Bless Africa).
If you enjoy these songs, try L’Estrange’s hit cantata Zimbe! Come sing the songs of Africa!
The arrangements form part of the Choral Basics series, which has been carefully designed to provide rewarding, varied repertoire for beginner choirs. Perfect for singers of all ages, the series offers attractive, idiomatic arrangements for SA and SA/Men choirs, with carefully considered vocal ranges and straightforward piano accompaniments that support the singers. Embracing world music, spirituals, folk song, pop classics, hit shows and original pieces, this series offers everything a budding choir could wish for.

        Songs of a Rainbow Nation is suitable for intermediate choirs. The music is not too challenging and it's great fun trying to fit in the words!
