Anyone looking for a wide-ranging selection from the classic treasury of songs from German-speaking countries in a beautifully-produced volume will strike lucky with this song book. Families with children will enjoy using this volume over the years. The choice of songs is as colorful as life itself: songs for celebrations, for telling stories, playing, laughing and dancing, enjoying the seasons, friendship, the pleasures and pains of love, going to sleep. As well as folk songs, the book also contains songs from other countries which have already become standards, plus lots of rounds.
The song book contains over 160 songs with melodies, texts, and chord symbols. The singalong CD (mp3 format) contains one or two verses of all the songs recorded on different instruments. An invaluable support for learning and singing together.
Frank Walka has produced numerous expressive paintings specially for the song book. Printed on double pages and also scaltered throughout the music pages, these invite you to explore the songs and tell their stories in a unique way.
"Die schönsten Lieder" (The most beautiful songs) is part of the prize-winning LIEDERPROJEKT. There is also a voice and piano volume for the song book containing accompaniments to all the songs.
