Rounds 10 – Resource PackView Anna Tabbush's Full Store
Anna Tabbush has created two brilliant sets of rounds which we’re delighted to publish on ChoirCommunity. This set of rounds is based on the theme of The Night Sky. The other set published today is based on the theme of Singing and can be found on this link.
This resource pack contains the score and audio learning tracks for all four rounds. The details for each round are:
In Comes Night
The sun she warms us through the day
And shines so we may find our way
But warmth and light they cannot stay
For in comes night
This song states the obvious really. But I’ve always been fascinated by humankind’s relationship with the sun. Our health and happiness are dependent on how much sunlight we see and feel. I often think that we would be happier as a species if we did what the sun and our bodies tell us to: play when the sun shines, rest when it’s dark.
These stars will keep shining
Till we’re reunited
Sometimes we make connections with people in our lives which feel real and close for a short time. Years or decades can pass before we see them again, but when we do it seems like no time has passed at all. I likened the connection that exists in these kinds of friendships to the stars; we can rely on them being there with no maintenance on our part.
One Moon Shines
One moon shines above us all
Causing tides to ebb and flow
Weaving silvery light
Through night’s shadows
I wrote this round for a collaborative arts project called One Moon that was held on Box Hill, Surrey in 2019. Massed choirs, including my own, joined with UP!; an orchestra for adults with learning difficulties, and I Speak Music; an orchestra of refugees. Our performance accompanied an art installation by renowned artist Mary Branson. The event itself was a wonderful thing to be part of, and it kicked off with everyone singing this round. The moon is a common experience for everyone around the world – something that unites us and connects displaced people to their homes and families.
When The Sun Sets
When the sun sets
Cold the night gets
Huddle round the summer fire
And sing with me
I wrote this round for SingFest, a singing weekend I’ve run for 15 years. We have a big bonfires in the evenings which we sing around. The weekend is in early September and the weather’s always been kind to us, but the nights can get very chilly!
