I am so happy to have found this book! I am using it to teach canons to my children's choir. The breadth of genre, the inclusion of both sacred and secular, the diversity of ability levels and voices necessary, and the clear presentation of the pieces make this a valuable research tool as well as a godsend for teachers.

The songs in this books are truly beautiful. However, inasmuch as this is attributed to the King's Singers, the material in it tends to be challenging. Definitely not for the beginner or enthusiastic amateur choir. Would be great for trained high school or university singers who read music.

I was looking for a collection of rounds to use with my voice students to help them carry their parts independently. Rounds prepare singers for ensembles later on. What a wonderful collection! The texts are quite humorous and music is appealing, kids love them.

Me and my SO like to sing rounds and cannons when we are drinking with friends, this book had several we hadn't seen before - and in the period that we like (pre 17th century). 62 of the rounds are Pre - 17th (about half and half secular and sacred). :D

For informal singing groups that love rounds and canons, this is a great collection. The King Singers have made excellent choices of music to include in this book.

I was hoping to use this volume as a social activity during a family gathering (we have many gifted singers and musicians in our extended clan). We got through about 10-15, starting at the top. The selections weren't too "hard" per se; many of them were just awkward and ugly. The counterpoint and harmony are unrewarding. Simply put, these are just not very good rounds. Yet one more reminder that not all old art is worth preserving. Maybe there are some gems in the later pages that we didn't get to... I don't know. But of the rounds we sung, the effort to learn them was not worth the reward.

We've used this book for many years for homeschool, 4-H choir, family reunions, and road trips. There are many beautiful songs that have become part of family tradition.
My now college age daughter tried to sneak off to school with the book in her suitcase, so I am getting her one for her own.

AS the co-chair/accompanist and sometime librarian for an Early Music Ensemble I am always looking for new and interesting music, especially short warm-up pieces and selections for improving various aspects of Technique. This book offers a broad spectrum of Early music selections that fit our needs precisely!
