Singing in canon is one of the oldest and easiest ways of singing in parts. Canons have survived both in the oral tradition as folk songs as well as in historical compositions.

Canons are sung with one part beginning and other parts singing the same melody but starting at some point after the first part. Usually all parts will end or "cadence" at the same time creating a satisfying final chord.

This is a collection of songs which have been enjoyed by families as well as court musicians and their patrons. These are perfect for families and friends to rediscover the pleasures of singing canons, in the car, as a grace before dinner, or anytime they gather and perfect for use in the classroom.

Canons bring harmony into peoples lives.

This book contains 71 canons sure to delight your family, friends and students alike. Compiled by John M. Feierabend.
