Arrangements

[Note, March 2020: Please bear with me, as this site is still under construction. Audio recordings of the wee songs will appear over the next few months]

My thoughts on song sharing and copyright can be found here.

Here you will find my arrangements of songs for choirs. These are songs written by other people, so will be traditional or older (therefore out of copyright) songs. You’re welcome to use these arrangements with your choirs. If you’re using these songs and you have a few quid to spare, please give it to the next person you see sleeping rough, or your local foodbank as payment.
