Toodle-oo, Vindaloo!

13 performance rounds for hungry singers

If music be the food of love . . . then you’ll simply love this collection of rounds that has Food as its theme. Expect some heartburn as you sing of pumpkins, peas, eels, gammon steak and applesauce—all washed down with ale and black coffee. The twelve rounds encompass many moods and offer more than enough movement among the parts. They may of course be sung by mixed groups of all ages, although treble voices make a splendid sound. Should the range of any round seem daunting, turn to the final page for an explanation of “partnered voices”.

Over 100 of Brian Kogler’s rounds are now accessible on YouTube. Scores are available for free on request. Please contact: bkogler [at] bigpond [dot] com
