Choirs Can Arrangements:
Each of the songs can be downloaded from their "songpacks" that include printable sheet music; a recording by the vocal ensemble Moving Voices; a spoken recording of the irish words and a further series of recordings with each voice made more prominent in turn. As well as being audio tracks that each part of the choir can sing along to separately, these are very useful pronunciation tools for the Irish language. This means that even if you don’t speak Irish or read sheet music, you can still use Choirs Can materials—no matter where your choir is from!
Project Director, Deirdre Moynihan, looking at the new arrangements with students of Colaiste Choilm, Ballincollig
Deirdre Moynihan, the Director and instigator of the Choirs Can project, says ‘This website will not only provide a valuable resource for choirs in Ireland, it will have huge appeal for international choirs who are constantly seeking new Irish Choral Arrangements.’
Eight new Choral Arrangements
- Ideally suited to secondary- school choirs & non- professional choirs
- Download the files for FREE on this specially designed archival website
- Each songpack contains a pdf of the music, a recording of the arrangement by "Moving Voices", a spoken pronunciation guide and an audio learning tool.
The Audio Learning Tool
- The audio learning tool consists of four additional recordings where each individual choral line is to the fore. The fact that the line is to the fore, but at the same time heard within the context of the overall arrangement, is important as it will help with orientation when everything is being sung together. This will be a very useful "learning tool" in particular for singers who don’t read music.
