Music from the Republic of Georgia, Vol. 1
by Patty Cuyler and Mollie Stone
This book includes twelve traditional three-part folk songs from the Republic of Georgia which can be performed with mixed, youth or adult choirs, all-male or all-female ensembles, or children's choirs. Included in the book are scores, word sheets, a pronunciation guide, a short history of Georgia and its music, rehearsal techniques and tips for authentic performance.
Arrangements are for middle school to high school singers; some are adaptable for younger singers.
