Small Choir rounds and fun pieces

I have collected together some of my rounds and small choir pieces.  These were written as teaching aids for me teaching string and mixed ensemble groups.  The words helped the students play well together and were fun to do as well.  They can also be taught by rote easily.  As separate parts or complete song, or broken up into any order that you wish.  The idea is anything fits together.  Percussion works well as well.

Small Canon 3 includes two versions with words.  All good fun for teaching kids.

Small Canon 4 includes words as well.

Small Canon 8 is also with words.  It is mostly in the minor.

Small Canon 11a for strings score This was a canon off the back of an African round called Ongawa. (spelling is probably dodgy).  It can be performed in two ways every 2 pars (11a) and every bar (11b)
