Unison pieces

Other downloads:
Three part

This list is separate from the main Roding Music list. Pieces have been chosen which lend themselves to unison rendition. Of necessity they are mostly in the simple style known as Plain Tunes. In many cases they have been transposed down, as the original voice part would have been for soprano or tenor rather than for mixed voices. So these versions should not be used in conjunction with the three or four part versions listed elsewhere. The keyboard accompaniments are straight transcriptions of the original vocal parts.

Click on S to view and hear the music from a Sibelius Scorch file. You can if you wish transpose the file up or down into a new key; click on the B flat key signature on the tool bar and follow the on-screen instructions. All Roding Music Scorch files may be downloaded and/or printed out and freely copied for amateur use. Click on the floppy disc icon or the printer icon on the toolbar.

If you are new to Sibelius Scorch or have any trouble with these files please look at the relevant page of Questions and Answers for more information. Click on pdf for a printable pdf file.
