Australian Choral Anthology Volume 1 - SATB

By choral

Regular price $40.00 Sale

$30.00 for instant PDF download complete Volume 1  Buy Now


16 works for SATB with distinctly Australian content, composed by various Australian composers.


A ‘call for scores’ requested that the word content must be of ‘distinctly Australian flavour’. More than 40 works were submitted, obviously more than one volume!  Hence, three volumes have emerged with one each for SATB choirs (mostly with piano accompaniment); a SA choir; and choir with instruments other than piano (with separate instrument parts).  As a result, their words have captured our Australian fabric; gum trees, many types of birds - kookaburras, magpies, currawong, even the Noisy Miner, and more - brumbies, bushfires, climate, seasons, and of course, arrangements of traditional folk songs.

Overall, we have tried to make this project as accessible as possible to ensure that this Australian music is heard and appreciated by many and enjoyed by the singers. 

Multiple choir copies of any of the works can be purchased individually under license at very reasonable rates. Please contact keats@wirripang.com.au

        Australian Women Composers' Piano Anthology Volume III

        By Katie Zhukov

        Regular price $50.00 Sale


        Grades Intermediate (5th) to Advanced (Dip.)

        15 piano works by Wirripang-published, Australian Women Composers 2020.  

        Again, especially written and selected for this volume as edited by Katie Zhukov and it includes a CD of each work recorded by Katie Zhukov.  

        This third volume of new piano repertoire by Australian women composers is a companion to the Australian Women Composers’ Piano Anthology (2015)  and Volume II (2017) published earlier by Wirripang.

        Commissioning new work from established and emerging composers provides an opportunity for women’s voices to be heard in the Australian classical music arena that tends to be dominated by live and recorded performances of music by male composers. Introducing new generations of piano students to music by women composers helps drive the grassroots campaign for gender equality in Australian classical music.
        The pieces vary in style from Romantic to contemporary, neo-classical, and jazz-influenced idioms.
        Each work is accompanied by the composer’s biography, composer comments and pedagogical advice. The grading will assist teachers is choosing repertoire of appropriate difficulty for study and as extra lists for examinations.

                Beneath the Waves

                By Carolyn Morris

                Regular price $20.00 Sale

                Tuba or Trombone and Piano, c.2'00. Grade 5 AMEB

                This piece is inspired by the ocean and the sense of wonder it brings. The piano semi-quavers in the opening bars represent the sun sparkling on the water's surface. The lyrical, soaring phrases of the tuba take the listener deeper into the depths of the ocean, to the world of whales and other majestic sea creatures.

                Cantabile depicts the sun rising over a forest. The long slow phrases describe the vastness of the bush as nature awakens.
                Caprice is a playful dance which describes bush creatures at play. The steady quavers of the piano left hand provide a grounding above which the oboe can weave in and out with its syncopated and intricate rhythms.
