In this collection by Gwyn Arch, each of five continents is represented by two songs. These easy-to-perform, yet at the same time highly imaginative arrangements present a very varied picture with their differing combinations of voices, interleaved solo passages and not least their effective piano accompaniments. With these pieces choirs can be sure of making a great impact in concerts! As a special bonus, in addition to the complete recordings the CD also contains the piano accompaniment to each of the titles as a playback. More!
