The Moon and the Sun (Science Education Song for Grades 3-6)

children’s chorus (treble voices) and piano

The Sun and the Moon is a short, fun, tango-ish, and scientifically accurate choral song for children’s chorus (grades 2-8) with music by Bruce Lazarus and lyrics by Bobbi Katz, noted poet of children’s educational verse. The chorus is divided into two groups representing “Sun” and “Moon” and sing apt descriptions of each. Written for two-part treble voices; boys can sing an octave lower if needed.

I am the Sun
I make the day
Earth turns toward me
night fades a-way.

I am the Moon
and since my birth
my orbit takes me
around the Earth.

I’m quite dif-f’rnt than you are
I’m heat and light
I am a star!

I am cold and dark
I’m only bright
when I reflect your distant light

I am the Sun (You are the Sun)
I light the day (You light the day)
Earth turns toward me
Night fades a-way.

I am the Moon (You are the moon)
I charm the night (You charm the night)

Moon and the Sun
The dark and bright.

    A moving setting of the classic American lullaby. Good for developing singers, but also a good choice for some lovely unison singing with more advanced ensembles. The students we arranged this for absolutely loved it. We hope your choir does too.

    The words of this carol/motet are well-known from Britten’s teenage tour-de-force, but that double-chorus setting is out of the reach of most church choirs. The powerful text, alternating English and Latin in the style of medieval carols, warrants an additional, simpler setting. The work is suitable for concert performance, as well as for liturgical use […]

The text is from Robert Louis Stevenson’s 1885 A Child’s Garden of Verses. The choir begins by emulating the sound of the wind, and then sings directly to the wind, describing the […]
