Based on sol-fa notation combined with unaccompanied part singing from the earliest stages in a child's school music, the Zoltan Kodaly Method develops musical literacy, secure intonation and rhythmic confidence—essential fundamentals of sound music education.
Bicinia Hungarica comprises a series of 4 books featuring the music which Kodaly composed and collected for the Method, available in English or German versions.
The songs provide a welcome introduction to elementary two-part singing. These works are not merely exercises, but miniatures which may serve as an introduction to the composer's larger works.
