As well as being an arts & education consultant, I specialise in writing and arranging for groups of singers who are not confident readers, aiming for stylish simplicity and accompaniments which really support the voices.

Most works are for secondary-age or adult choirs and have different voice options, including SA, SAB and SATB) and are available as digital copies for download (default) or hard copies posted to you - with the exception of Sing Up, Sing Out! (guest writers) which is written for primary-age children and is hard copy only.

Check out my MORE INFO pages (menu at the foot of this and each product page) to view samples, demos and information about each of the works. Subscribe to hear about new arrangements when published.

Product Details
I'll Lay Ye Doon Love and Follow The Heron:

Two of the most beautiful Scottish folksongs ever written are brought together in these accessible arrangements for mixed voice choir.

I’ll Lay Ye Doon Love has existed in many forms, such is the oral tradition of folksongs. Believed to have originated in America, this arrangement derives from Scottish versions of the song, and tells of a man’s wooing of a lady and his promise to return from his travels and ‘lay her doon’ (which we presume to mean an offer of marriage, given his assurances of being an ‘honest man’!)

Follow The Heron is one of the best loved songs by Scottish folk artist Karine Polwart. It was written after she had been a guest at a Shetland folk festival, singing at an outlying island event; as she was heading home by sea in the early morning a heron rose in front of the boat and flew ahead. In the song the heron represents the return of Spring, light after darkness, hope after grief.
