Through its variety of styles as articulated by different composers, this book provides children’s choirs in the Philippines and abroad a broad range of experiences in musical and vocal styles. Moreover, the pieces promote the Filipino culture as these feature Filipino works as well as themes that reflect the culture, nature, and life of the islands and its people. Although many of the pieces here are challenging, we encourage conductors, singers, educators, and everyone who comes into contact with this book to open and broaden their worlds by learning and performing these works. These pieces present different approaches toward creative interpretation, expression and musical excellence.- excerpt from the Introduction by Maria Christine Muyco
