Songs for Street Choir Festival 2016 - 24th to 26th June

We have chosen for the stage singing Txoria - Hegoak and John Ball: we need to remember them!

The songbook for Levellers day should suffice for the SCF here:
You can print your own songbook from the linked files. The choice is:
i): pdf files formatted as a booklet printed on both sides giving either a) an A5 book (i.e. A4 sheets folded down the middle): print the 10-off A4 pages from pdf file page 1, turn the sheets over and print off the second pdf file pg2 on the back;
b) an A6 booklet by doing the same but printing two sheets to each page if your printer allows on each side of the paper ending up with 5 A4 sheets.
pdf file for page 1
pdf file for page 2.

or ii) Print from the Word doc which will print 37pages in order.
Word doc

The book has the songs for Levellers, the Peace event, possible Street Choir Festival songs and the text to accompany 'We are all under the stars'.

Songs for the Mass Sing:

The songs for the mass sing at the SCF can be downloaded here:
( https://www.dropbox.com/sh/nq8mtnr320dsajy/AADkNxRFbzaKogXK6tyqnioEa?dl=0) and are:

• Ain't Gonna Study War (Roxane Smith)
This is one of Red Leicester’s absolute favourites with a rich blend of voices and a powerful, peaceful message.
• Different Ships (Kirsty Martin) which we haven't sung before
This was written back in the 90s, and is still very relevant today. We have many refugees in Leicester and we sing this song in solidarity with them. We are delighted that Kirsty will be leading this song.
• E Malama (Nickomo)
We really like this. With today’s climate change and (wo)man’s effect on the earth, we really need an earth blessing.
• Never Turning Back (Pat Humphries) - this is on our web site but we haven't sung it since I have been coming, something like the last 8 years or so.
We love the fullness of the sound of six parts going together at once sending a resolute message of solidarity and strength of purpose.
• Singing For Our Lives (Holly Near arr. Jane Schonveld and Val Regan)
We remember singing this in Sheffield and really enjoying it. We think that this song personifies our twin themes of Solidarity and Diversity.
And, of course…….
• The Internationale (Billy Bragg)
This song needs no introduction and is a joyous rallying cry in these days of austerity and division.
