Climb into this time capsule to travel through 42,050 years of musical history.
Each song is brought to life with authentic instrumentation, full and expressive backings. The illustrations help you picture the instruments and players at each era. Accurately dated, some of these these tunes are amongst the most ancient to have survived. David and Christa Liggins have turned the tunes into songs with words that give meaning and help you “feel” the music as well as understand the times in which they were set.
The 21 songs in this book can be played as a continuous narrative, using the comments at the bottom of the page as links. Dress up to play epic tunes of the Maya, Greeks and Ancient Egyptians and of medieval minstrels, jazz jivers and disco divers or just enjoy them in the moment, as you sing and play them. The performance and backing tracks are a substantial and coherent part of this book
Use this book for the whole class band: ocarinas, recorders, tin whistles, flutes, fifes, violins, ukuleles, guitars, class percussion... and voices too!
