  • › New Song Book: Songs of the Living World


    We were delighted to introduce the Songs of the Living World at the 35th International Society of Music Educators Conference hosted in Melbourne in July 2022.

    Drawing on many years of creative collaborations with First Nation Elders and artists in intercultural and environmental projects, Laura Brearley has composed thirty environmental songs for community singing groups and choirs, focussed on three inter-related themes: Respect, Protect, Connect.

    The Songs of the Living World are a testament to our deep and fiercely protective love of the natural world. The recordings feature singers and musicians from across Victoria, with stunning production by Mal Webb.

    Songs of the Living World includes:

    • lyric and chord sheets,
    • musical notations
    • USB and digital download of recordings of final arrangements
    • separated parts and backing tracks.

    The book is now available for purchase from the CMVic online shop. $70 plus postage with the usual 20% discount for CMVic Members.
