Voicing: SATB, or TTBB, and piano or SAATTBB a cappella

Duration: 1' 38"


Both versions retain all the exuberant energy of the original mediaeval English round


The version with piano introduces variety by slowly building up the layers of the round - unison at first, then in 2 parts and finally in 4. Some extra cuckoos and a final chorus of animals completes this enjoyable setting. A discreetly rocking piano part supports the voices, making this an ideal arrangement for less confident choirs, as well as more experienced groups.


The a cappella version is not the same as the piano version. It is intended for more experienced choirs but follows the same basic structure.
