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

Enjoy these new Australian pieces!

                Australian Women Composers' Piano Anthology Volume II

                By Katie Zhukov

                Regular price $50.00 Sale

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

                16 piano works by Wirripang-published, Australian Women Composers 2018.

                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.

                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.
