Icon A cappella

This Folk Songs choral collection explores the musical world of Great Britain and Ireland. It contains 21 arrangements of English-language verse songs, canons, and ballads for mixed unaccompanied chorus. The folk songs are as diverse as the stories they tell: from the moving Greensleeves and Two Hearts Beat as One, through charming settings such as A Rosebud by My Early Walk and There Were Three Ravens, to saucy and tongue-in-cheek songs such as Dashing Away with the Smoothing Iron and The Mother-in-Law. The stylistic treatment is very varied - this collection contains both original settings from the 13th century as well as arrangements specially commissioned from contemporary composers. The settings are in three to five parts, and the vocal parts sometimes divide. They are by well-known British and Irish composers from the 19th and 20th centuries such as Benjamin Britten, Gustav Holst, Ralph Vaughan Williams, and Charles Villiers Stanford, as well as contemporary composers such as John Rutter and Carsten Gerlitz who give a new twist to these traditional songs.
