for SAB, accompanied and unaccompaniedSongStream 1 is an exciting and innovative collection of 10 songs for youth choirs. Largely scored for SAB, with some divisi and optional parts, these songs combine the music of Bob Chilcott and the Voiceworks approach of Peter Hunt to present a dazzling array of pieces in all styles for young singers. Accessible, relevant, and heart-warming, these pieces will communicate directly with young singers and their audiences and freshen any concert programme.

"What is so valuable is that neither Chilcott nor Hunt 'write down' to the singer: both realise the importance of writing music that has integrity and sensitivity, while being aware of young singers' vocal strengths and limitations. This is highly recommended." - Malcolm Goldring, Music Teacher March 06
"Already you will have been alerted to something special by SongStream's two named compilers/editors, and your instincts have not let you down! Here are ten wonderfully crafted arrangements and original works that will be thoroughly enjoyed by youth choirs and youthful choirs . . . Assured writing with imagination and a taste for fun!" - Robert Fielding, Choir & Organ Nov 05
