Lin Marsh

Thumbnail 240

Songscape: Stage and Screen is the perfect resource for Keystage 3 (Scottish P7+) singing and is an invaluable collection of 12 classics songs both old and new from stage and screen. Featuring well-known classics alongside songs from shows written especially for children it includes useful context on each song and suggestions for adding movement. Ideal for bringing confidence to the classroom and concert singing, with vocal ranges and lyrics carefully considerd for the age range, many of the songs have optional vocal parts providing scope for part-singing.

Keyboard accompaniments are well within the grasp of pianists of moderate ability and the hugh-quality CD includes complete performances of all the songs, plus backings ideal for rehearsals and perfomance. As the CD is 'enhanced', vocal parts are also included in pdf format for printing separately.

A good selection of show tunes here, and one which caters to all tastes, be they infantile or sophisticated, mainstream or obscure, all well arranged by Ms Marsh and including good notes on each song’s (and the shows they are part of) context and helpful performance notes, as well as the backing CD. One has to wonder why popular music books (where this tome sits equally comfortably) don’t have performance notes too. Highly recommended for both schools and homes.
