Pronounced “Dane Guh”, the title translates as “With One Voice”.
20 entertaining and enjoyable Irish-language songs, appropriate to the language, musical and vocal ability of primary school children. Book 1 provides music for Junior and Senior Infants, 1st and 2nd Classes. The songs will stimulate children both musically and linguistically.
D’Aon Ghuth is intended for use with the Irish national curriculum for music from 2005.
There are suggested activities for pupils and there are helpful notes for teachers. A CD is also included, containing brilliantly scored backing tracks and high-quality sample performances.
The pupils’ pages may be photocopied for use in the classroom or choir.
The composer of D’Aon Ghuth was set an ambitious brief for this commission. She has embraced this challenge with enthusiasm and dedication and in the process has significantly contributed to Irish language repertoire for young singers.
