Singing Rounds Songbooks

A round (also called a perpetual canon or infinite canon) is a musical composition, a limited type of canon, in which a minimum of three voices sing exactly the same melody at the unison (and may continue repeating it indefinitely), but with each voice beginning at different times so that different parts of the melody coincide in the different voices, but nevertheless fit harmoniously together. It is one of the easiest forms of part singing, as only one line of melody need be learned by all parts, and is part of a popular musical tradition.

Zephyr Rounds : SSAATTBB : Sheet Music : 48020867 : 884088504311 : 1423493737

: Zephyr Rounds

Zephyr Rounds was the winner of the 2007 Yale Glee Club Emerging Composers Competition. The asymmetry of the 13/8 time signature creates a bustling feeling of perpetual motion, blossoming into a thick texture of contrapuntal exchanges and melodic hocket between voices. The result is an infectious rhythmic energy unusual in a piece for a cappella chorus. Duration: ca. 5:50.
