Mary I'm telling You Now! - VERY catchy new Christmas song

Mary I'm telling You Now! - VERY catchy new Christmas song

The Annunciation was never like this! What a dilemma, engaged to be married to Joseph - then you are told that you're gong to bear the son of God! This singable song puts a human angle on this part of the Christmas story. Please check the vocal demo - you will be singing the chorus by the end of it! Send the children to this page on my website so they can practice at home - vital to get the words out clearly. http://www.musicals4kidz.com/musicals4kidz.com/Christmas_Songs_for_Choirs.html They can also access the song on You Tube I've done it in G and C: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JpC0O3yViL4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R-vcwsGugdk Get in touch if you want any changes to key or tempo.

OCR GCSE Music - Concerto Through Time - Comparison Lesson

OCR GCSE Music - Concerto Through Time - Comparison Lesson

Depending on how quickly your students work, this could be one or two listening lessons. This is the final lesson which follows on from my lessons on Baroque, Classical and Romantic concertos which are also for sale. The first activity is a card sort. I photocopied the table blank onto different coloured card and the answer table onto matching colours and cut all the answers out. The students had to arrange the answers ontop of their blank table. I have repeated this in other lessons as they just get quicker at doing it and its a good revision tool. Once they have done this they copy out (or you could hand out complete tables) to have in their folder. The listening activity covers a concerto from each period of time, and the final question is a comparison paragraph question, similar to what would appear on the listening exam.
