Canons – When 2 or more groups sing the same song, but start at different times.
Using the videos below, learn the melodies of the canons and then practice singing with different Mrs. Miller’s to practice holding your part while others are singing something different!
Morning is Come – William H. Bradbury (1816-1868)
Are you Sleeping – French Folk Song
Good Night to you All
White Choral Bells
Hashivenu – Isreali Folk Song

Toembai – Isreali Folk Song
Jubilate Deo – Praetorius (1571-1621)
