Pentatonic Music Vol. 4: 140 Chuvash Melodies
Kodaly Choral Method Series
By Zoltan Kodaly
This comprehensive series of progressive songs and sight-singing exercises is designed to promote a thorough understanding of interval and tonality. By incorporating a wide range of Hungarian folk music and poetry, Kodaly has produced a stimulating addition to the repertoire of school and amateur choirs.
This collection of 140 Chuvash melodies was incorporated into Kodály's Choral Method to perform a number of educationally useful and yet separate functions. They are, however, performance pieces, albeit for classroom use, and should be learned in conjunction with sight-reading training using 333 Elementary Exercises.
