Review quote

Choir directors will be delighted with Voiceworks, a superb resource for leaders of choral groups aged 11 to 14 . . . This handbook covers all the areas a leader needs to know about. A detailed introduction is followed by sections on how to warm up the voice and rehearse. The section on boys' changing voices is particularly useful. The undoubted triumph of the publication is the very approachable material: 60 songs, from unison to four-part harmony. * Christopher Bell, TES, 29 June 01 * Brilliant! At last. Thanks be. Choir leaders charged with motivating young singers will echo these sentiments when they see Voiceworks, a superb resource for leaders of choral groups at all levels. Peter Hunt has poured his years of experience as a choir trainer in the secondary classroom, as an animateur in the primary classroom and as conductor of the Oxfordshire Youth Chamber Choir into this book, collecting songs that will delight, educate and entertain. * Christopher Bell, Music Teacher, Sept 2001 *show more
