'Round the Seasons
By Elizabeth Gilpatrick
87 pages

40 new rounds, partner songs and short songs for every holiday and season. Each includes activities and rehearsal suggestions and more than half include optional Orff instrumental accompaniments. Most songs show the melody line and lyrics only; a few have chord letters as well. Songs with accompaniment parts have those parts listed (in smaller type) under the song. Accompaniment parts are given (in full-size type) on reproducible pages at the end of the book.   

Accompaniments use: soprano and alto glockenspiel; soprano, alto and bass xylophone; soprano, alto and bass metallophone; drum; and temple blocks. Some parts give a choice of instruments (e.g. soprano or alto metallophone, bass or alto xylophone) so that you can use the instruments already available to you.   

Contents: Listed by Song (use); songs with optional accompaniment parts are marked by *
