Counting the Ways - 3-pt. Treble and piano. "This original composition has been arranged to feature your school choir, 1-3 soloists, and a smaller select group able to take on the additional challenge of learning a 3-part descant harmony part for the last chorus. The simple pop song style means you can teach your choir this crowd-pleasing, upbeat song in just a few classes – perfect for award or year-end ceremonies and all ages of students, “Counting the Ways” is sure to become one of your students’ favourite" - MacColl
Almost Didn't Think of You Today - SSAB. "This incredibly romantic song is written in the style of a classic jazz ballad by Sam Masich, and while the arrangement was intended for an SSAB a cappella group, the men’s part could just as easily be played by an upright or electric bass in order to accompany a female group. The vocal ranges will suit many levels of choirs, and the beautiful melody and bittersweet lyrics will stay with your singers and audiences long after the song has been sung." - MacColl
Changed Forever - SSA, a capella. "A beautiful song by legendary Canadian singer, songwriter, film composer Shari Ulrich; this a cappella arrangement is for 3-part women’s choir, and was premiered by the world-renowned Elektra Women’s Choir at their April 2010 concert, “Canadian Voices”. “Changed Forever” has since gone international, with women’s choirs from the States being the first to order this piece." - MacColl
