On this page, I’m sharing a few public domain songs from different traditions and/or in different languages that I have compiled over the years in case they can be of use to other singers. I’ll update this page periodically. These songs aren’t in my native language, so if you see any errors, I’d be really pleased to hear from you correcting me! firstname.lastname@example.org.
International songsheets connected with online workshops can be found on this page.
