Singing is cool – especially singing in small vocal ensembles is currently taking on greater significance among young people. This explains the great number of school and youth choirs experiencing large growth in choral music. However, at the same time the established choirs, especially men’s choirs complain of a shortage of young people. A frequently cited argument for this is the lack of new repertoire for men's choirs. Although there are excellent examples of modern four-part arrangements and compositions for this genre, these are often simply too difficult particularly for young men. If the guys are still interested in singing after their voice change, they are usually needed for the “dum-dup-da” of the supporting voices in mixed school and youth choirs. However, more attention should be paid to these young men’s voices. They should have the opportunity to independently demonstrate their abilities. Anyone who has had good experiences in music early in life will also be interested in singing in a men’s choir or a men’s vocal ensemble later on.

Precisely for this reason does this collection offer a new concept with a new repertoire, ideally suited for the first encounters with men’s vocal singing especially in youth choirs. What better way to get started than with traditional Irish folk music – a living tradition that is cultivated not only in the pubs of Ireland, but all around the world?
The arrangements, written by the experienced English arranger Gwyn Arch for two men’s voices (tenor and bass) and piano accompaniment make a full-fledged resounding performance possible. Thus the guys in the school choir can show what “real” men sound like! Of course, the arrangements are also ideally suited for experienced and seasoned male choirs as an ideal complement to their existing repertoire.

As a special novelty this choral edition includes besides the full score (choral parts with piano accompaniment) in the same booklet all pieces as clear and compact photocopiable songsheets (choral parts without piano). That way, the choral director can legally copy the desired song in choral quantity!
