Songs

Chorus materials are provided by the Chorus Librarian on CD or DVD ($0.25 for hand-delivery at rehearsals, or $1.50 for shipping) containing PDF computer files of all music scores, playable MIDi files, and RTF or DOC files (the last two file types are lyric or other text files such as performance scripts). Some songs also are available in separate SATB parts.

To give you an idea of the range of songs we sing, below is a partial listing of fifteen years’s worth of Labor Chorus songs and parodies. (Or to see a PDF with an index of all our songs as of September, 2013, click here.)
