Songs of Wartime contains three varied songs associated with the First World War, skilfully arranged by Alexander L’Estrange. A rousing march (It’s a Long Way to Tipperary) , a hopeful ballad (Keep the Home Fires Burning) , and a wistfully romantic song (If You were the Only Girl in the World) , offer glimpses into the hearts and minds of those who lived during the ‘Great War’ – and are testimony to the powerful role of music in times of trouble. The Choral Basics series has been carefully designed to provide rewarding, varied repertoire for beginner choirs. Perfect for singers of all ages, the series offers attractive, idiomatic arrangements for SA and SAMen choirs, with carefully considered vocal ranges and straightforward piano accompaniments that support the singers. Embracing world music, spirituals, folk song, pop classics, hit shows and original pieces, this series offers everything a budding choir could wish for.
