Cathy Blair : Penguins on Parade : Songbook : 30/2346H

Cathy Blair : Penguins on Parade

Grades 1-3. Creative movement is the focus of these simple melodies, each of which highlights a particular animal and its particular, sometimes peculiar, way of moving. Movement suggestions that reinforce steady beat, phrase and other rudimentary concepts are provided, but there are plenty of opportunities for students to express themselves through their own movements. Many of these come compliments of the lively and inventive recordings on the included Performance/Accompaniment CD, several of which have extended instrumental sections designed specifically to facilitate creative movement. Here come the penguins (and kangaroos and lions and crocodiles and monkeys and more) on parade!

Songlist: Chicken Scratch, Why Can't Cats and Dogs Just Get Along?, Doctor Croc, Giddy Up, Swingtime (The Monkey Song), Penguins on Parade, Hurry, Hurry, Hurry (The Song of the Snail), Even Ducks Have to Sleep, The Hamster Dance, King of the Jungle, Down the Rabbit Hole, Zippy the Kangaroo

Christopher Tin : The Lost Birds (An Extinction Elegy) : SATB divisi : Songbook : 196288138334 : 1705194206 : 48025221

Christopher Tin : The Lost Birds (An Extinction Elegy)

The Lost Birds is a musical memorial to bird species driven to extinction by humankind. Sweeping and elegaic, it's a haunting tribute to those soaring flocks that once filled our skies, but whose songs have since been silenced. It's a celebration of their feathered beauty: their symbolism as messengers of hope, peace, and renewal. But it's also a warning about our own tenuous existence on the planet: that the fate that befell those once soaring flocks foreshadows our own extinction.

Songlist: Intermezzo, There Will Come Soft Rains, Flocks A Mile Wide, Bird Raptures, A Hundred Thousand Birds, Thus In The Winter, In the End

Irving Fine : McCord's Menagerie : TBB 3 Parts : Sheet Music Collection

Irving Fine : McCord's Menagerie

Subtitled "Four Vivariations", Irving Fine's McCord's Menagerie, are settings of humorous poems by David McCord. With the bumbling "loo's" accompanying the tenor melody, Fine's setting of Vultur Gryphus implies a harmless creature. Instead of the movie western's ominous bird associated with death, Fine's animal seems too lazy and stupid to get his own food! Jerboa, classified as the genus jaculus jaculus, is as active and scary in Fine's world as Vultur Gryphus is laid back and friendly. Fine agrees with those to whom a darting (the translation of the Latin jaculus) small rodent is sinister and creepy, attributes he conveys through abrupt entrances and minor tonality. In Mole McCord compares the over-soul of man, a Unitarian concept put forth by Ralph Waldo Emerson, with the limited capacities of the mole. In Clam, Fine and McCord give in to their silliest selves. McCord observes how man the diner and clam the dinner (in chowder no less) both evolved from the same ancestor; man is saved from the clam's fate, according to McCord, by his own initiative and work ethic. Fine has a lot of fun with the sounds suggesting insouciance, which explains why the clam never got ahead! Lots of fun here.

Songlist: Jerboa, Vultur Gryphus, Clam, Mole

Wild Swans : SATB divisi : Christopher Tin : Edna St. Vincent Millay : Sheet Music Collection : 48025182 : 196288113027 : 1705183069

Christopher Tin : Wild Swansnew

Wild Swans, a setting of a poem by Edna St. Vincent Millay, ends the first half of The Lost Birds. Told from the point of view of the poet, it starts with the sound of bird cries: gradually approaching from a distance, until they pass overhead, triggering feelings of longing. After an instrumental interlude, and the narrator's impassioned declaration of freedom, the song ends as it started--with the cries of wild swans receding into the distance, foreshadowing their demise.

Cockroach : SA : Neil Ginsberg : Neil Ginsberg : Sheet Music : SBMP932 : 964807009324

Neil Ginsberg : Cockroach

Neil Ginsberg approaches this Mary Ann Hoberman text with mock seriousness. Although much of the piece is written for unison voices, toward the end, a second part enters with its own tune, the piano becomes melodramatic, and the story concludes with an inquisitive punch line. Great fun! (Second in a set of three.)

Dominick DiOrio : Cuckoo, Cuckoo

This jaunty little work is on a text from William Shakespeare's Love's Labour's Lost, one of his earliest comedies. The tongue-in-cheek text talks of married life and the woe that comes from being unable to pursue the frolicsome fruits of spring. Keeping with the profile of the Rollo Dilworth Choral Series, this piece is designed for upper level high school singers, honors choirs and festivals.

Craig Hella Johnson : Deer Song

Four movements from the end of the Passion section of Considering Matthew Shepard we hear from a deer. It has been well established that Matt loved the outdoors and it is fitting that a deer should sing All night I lay there beside you, I cradled your pain in my care. The women sing this delicate text accompanied by three soprano soloists who bring the breeze and the hope of redemption.

Down to the Zoo! : 2-Part : A. A. Milne : A. A. Milne : Sheet Music : 00-48827 : 038081561516

A. A. Milne : Down to the Zoo!

Have you ever heard of a bear with wings? Or a biffalo-buffalo-bison? How about a wallaboo? A. A. Milne, best-known as the author of Winnie the Pooh, penned this playful poem about amusing animals, both real and imagined, at a zany zoo. This clever children's choral offers plenty of musical moments (including independent counterlines and logical 2-part harmonies) in between giggles. Perform with a light, bright tone and crisp consonants on the patter-like words. Two likely results: hilarious rehearsals and a roaring crowd!

A fun pairing of two songs that describe life from the eagle's eye. One Day I'll Soar imagines thoughts of a baby eagle rhythmically pecking its way out of its shell with a quiet peck-a-peck-peck. I Am Eagle describes the majestic eagle in flight, soaring and diving across the horizon.
