Publisher Novello and Co
The Novello Book Of British Folksongs For Mixed-Voice Choirs is an enjoyable collection of diverse tunes that have descended from the folksongs across the British Isles. A variety of arrangements are included, both old and new, of well-loved tunes as well as some lesser-known pieces. All 34 tunes are arranged for SATB Chorus, some with Piano accompaniment, making this a brilliant way to enhance your choir's repertoire.

This Book Of British Folksongs offers a grand selection of favourite folk tunes arranged by composers such as Ralph Vaughan Williams, Gustav Holst, Paul Mealor and George Dyson. Tunes like A-Hunting We Will Go, Auld Lang Syne, Bonny At Morn, Come Lasses And Lads and Scarborough Fair suggest the sheer diversity on offer here. From sad tunes to happy songs, the arrangements here are at once beautiful and touching, coming truly to life when sung by a Mixed-Voice Choir

These thirty four folk songs will enrich a performance programme, whether as one part or the entirety. Choirs of all types and abilities will be able to discover their favourite arrangements, either the most beautiful, the funniest, or the most enjoyable to sing. With the country experiencing a revival in singing traditional folksongs, this collection is a great way to experience the unabashed joy that performing these British tunes can bring. With a great number of favourite tunes as well as some lesser-known songs, this collection includes songs like There Were Three Ravens, Yarmouth Town, My Love Is Like A Red, Red Rose, Dance To Your Daddy and The Rio Grande, as well as an extensive and fascinating introduction by Jeremy Summerly.

The wonderful thing about singing folksongs is they are like a window into our country's history. They are occasionally funny, often dramatic, but always enjoyable to sing, and their diversity
