I have a very small choir for people affected by cancer.  Where can I find some very simple 2 or 3 part songs which are easy to learn for non music-readers?  I'm tearing my hair out as I'm no good at arranging myself.

 

All suggestions welcome.

 

Thank you

You could try these two sites. Might be something you can use.

Try the Sing for Pleasure Junior Song Books.    I know it says 'Junior' but many of the songs are perfectly usable with adults.

 

There are loads of rounds and simple part-songs.

 

Gorgeous little books.

Oh - and SfP did publish the excellent Sing A Part 1 and Sing A Part 2 as well.   I have a nasty feeling they are out of print but keep your eyes open for them second-hand.
