Sing for Pleasure

Community Choir Repertoire Pack

Community Choir Repertoire Pack


In this repertoire pack you will find arrangements of popular secular songs as well as some sacred songs in styles from blues to gospel. Whilst presented for SAB or SATB, many arrangements could be voiced flexibly. This bundle contains four books from Sing for Pleasure’s Adult Songbook collection, all at a discounted price.

Jean Harlow (ASB #6): SfP Classics

Jean Harlow is a collection of 14 a cappella favorites for mixed voices, edited by Maggie Richardson. Published to celebrate SfP's 40th anniversary in 2004, the songs in this book represent 40 years of joyful music making. This selection of unaccompanied arrangements, selected by members, is the perfect introduction to 'Singing for Pleasure'.

O Lux Beata (ASB #9)

In O Lux Beata, we are delighted to present three arrangements and one new composition by Katy Lavinia Cooper, suitable for choirs of varying forces. They are written in such a way that they can be adapted to suit your choir's needs and you are encouraged to experiment with the number of parts and, in some cases, the structure of the performance. Originally written for the Glasgow Madrigirls, the music is designed for flexible voices, so can work with and without male voices. Katy has provided a note after each piece to provide performance suggestions.

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.

Build a Bridge (ASB #15)

Build a Bridge is a collection of pieces composed by SfP tutor Stuart Overington and inspired by various musical traditions including spirituals, gospel and folk music. They are a celebration of music and its ability to bring people together, and are designed to be enjoyed by choirs of all abilities. The pieces are intended to be introduced and taught by rote; the use of music, however, may help reinforce the learning and speed up the process.

Whilst all the songs are written for SATB choir, many of the arrangements are flexible and can work for upper voice choirs or SAB ensembles. Also, in keeping with the aural traditions of gospel and spirituals, they may be rearranged in their structure without too much difficulty.
