Camptown Races (ASB #12)


In Camptown Races we are delighted to present ten new arrangements of traditional songs for equal voices which are equally suited to choirs with flexible line-ups. All these songs have been road-tested and represent a variety of styles to encourage singers to develop different aspects of vocal technique. Edited by Don Gillthorpe.
