Thirty songs for children's choirs and worship services.
Thirty spirited contemporary songs for UU children, including many pieces for children’s choirs. Some are explicitly UU, like David Owens’s sprightly march “I Am a Unitarian, I Am a Universalist.” Lee Morris’s Easter anthem, “Everybody Sing Hallelujah,” fills a need for a UU children’s song about Jesus that celebrates his human moral legacy. Other songs celebrate nature, diverse families, and the joy of singing itself. Playfulness imbues the collection: Nick Page’s “UU Children’s Blessing,” for example, turns “This Little Piggy” into a goofy but sincere celebration of diverse beliefs. (“And this little piggy believes in multiple deities!”) Children’s drawings are sprinkled throughout. A director’s edition with accompaniment is available with bulk orders.
