collected by John Feierabend

This beautiful and significant revision to The Book of Canons is an incredible resource for music teachersóa sumptuously illustrated collection of more than 155 time-tested canons representing the absolute best music for children our culture has to offer.

The songs are drawn from all over the world, and many are by some of the great composers throughout historyóafter all, rounds and canons have been enjoyed since the Elizabethan era. Each canon in this collection is ranked by difficulty and includes a general translation if needed.

States John M. Feierabend in the introduction: ìHere then is a collection to meet many needs, sacred and secular, humorous and serious, major, minor, and modal, simple to complex…but above all, I hope you will find all of them musically satisfying.î

The book is beautifully organized so that teachers may search the varied indices to find the perfect canon for their classroom by title, difficulty (Easy. Medium Easy. Medium. Medium Difficult. Difficult), category (About Music and Singing. Animals and Critters. Friendship, Love, Peace and Conflict. Humorous and Clever. Meals and Blessings. Morning and Evening. Nature, Land and Sea. On Death and Dying. People, Places and Things. Sacred and Latin. Seasons. Songs without Words), and composer (Bach, Beethoven, Bradbury, Brahms, Byrd, Caldara, Cherubini, non Papa, Gebhardt, Gumpelzhaimer, Haydn, Hering, Hilton, Holst, Lampe, Lassus, Mozart, Praetorius, Purcell, Ravenscroft, Salieri, Schubert, Smetana, Tallis, Telemann).
