Canons have held a large place in the oeuvre of almost every major composer since the inception of notated music and are great for developing the basis of part-singing. Along with the piano accompaniment, Moore's Cantate Canon offers an optional C-instrument which creates one more layer of musical interest. A great choice for any concert, contest, or festival. Also available for Two-Part Voices (BL508) and Three-Part Mixed Voices (BL879).
Canons have held a large place in the lives of almost every major composer since the the inception of notated music. There are literally thousands of musical canons in existence, from the very simple to the very complex, even a canon with as many as 48 voice parts. This canon, composed and arranged by Donald Moore, is for TBB voices. As B1 picks up the theme, Tenor moves into a complimentary role, soon to be duplicated by B1 and B2.The wonderful thing about canons: if everyone learns the first four measures of the canonic melody, they have already mastered a good portion of the composition. Canons are great for developing the basis of part singing. Sing the canon simply and with great clarity. As the B1 begins, the bass and tenor voices will cross back and forth, sometimes B1 being higher than Tenor. It may be fun to have the voices mixed and milling in the space about as they sing, as this creates an interesting effect for the singers. It is also an excellent test to ensure that each participant knows his part independently of others.
