Date: 04 Dec 14 - 04:02 AM

When I think of Rounds, I think of Sol Weber and his Rounds Galore book, but there must be other songbooks out there that have even more rounds to explore. If you have any rounds books, post indexes here.
      This is an edited PermaThread® for indexing Rounds songbooks. This thread will be edited by Joe Offer. Feel free to post to this thread, but remember that all messages posted here are subject to editing or deletion.

The Catch Book, ed. Paul Hillier, Oxford University Press 1987 has some rounds among its 153 related catches, mostly from 17th c England.

The Million's Glee Book, ed. I.B.Woodbury, Cornish, Lamport and Company 1851 has a round I've seen nowhere else "Yes, 'Tis the Indian Drum"(Bishop):
Hark! 'tis the Indian drum
The rocks and woods around
Echo the warlike sound,
Echo the warlike sound,
They come, they come, they come, they come, they come
Yes, 'tis the Indian drum.............the drum
Yes, 'tis the Indian drum............ drum
Hark! hark! they come, Hark! they come, they come, they come

The book is a collection of glees, ballads, songs arranged for sole, duet or quartet

I hope that this thread will be broadly inclusive of rounds, canons, and catches -- of all varieties -- and not be arbitrarily limited to "rounds".

One of the best rounds collections for group singing (besides Sol Weber's books of course) is "101 Rounds for Singing" published by World Around Songs (formerly Cooperative Recreation Service). (These are the small 6 3/4" x 3 3/4" songbooks.) And it's still in print after all these years!   I have a singing set of about 25 (they're small enough that everybody needs a copy).

Here's a somewhat annotated list of the contents.
I've tried to note composers and sources as cited. (Which may not always be correct, but that's another topic.)
I've listed the number of parts.   
Also, where the title given doesn't match the first line, I've included the first line to improve searching.
And where words are included in more that one language, I've tried to include each first line -- again to improve searches.

How odd. I was reminiscing about singing rounds when I was at school in the late 50s, and only this week I bought a copy of the Penguin Book of Rounds. Second-hand, two quid. It's clearly never been read, though the pages are yellowing and coming unglued (I care not a jot!). The only marking on it is the name of a previous owner, one Susan Young. It's quite a formal and scholarly little tome, with notation for all the songs laid out. One that, for some reason, I most remember singing is "Morning Has Come". Like some of those 60s pop songs, it's never left me! No wonder my cranial hard-drive is slowing down... I don't think the one I remember from school is in my new book, though I found a nice version of it on YouTube. I connected "I Gave Her Cakes and I Gave Her Ale" by Purcell with a rather good version on a Silly Sisters album! Clearly, I have much more pleasant musing to come.

Moondog Rounds

For those who don't know, "Moondog" or Louis Hardin, was apparently quite a character: he hung around 54th St and 6th Avenue in Manhattan in his Viking outfit, philosophizing and selling mimeographed copies of his poetry.

In 1971 he recorded 25 of his rounds for Columbia Records as "Moondog II" or "Round the World of Sound: Moondog Madrigals" Columbia Records KC 30897. From the Oberlin Conservatory Library I was able to copy the LP insert, which has manuscript notation of all of the rounds. None of them are easy. And some are harder than the "smoothed off" versions that got into oral tradition [e.g. "Nero's Expedition Up the Nile"]. I had made reprints of these for our rounds group, so one may have found its way to you. Or I'd be curious to learn if it was ever published separately. The LP recording was reissued by CBS as part of the CD "Moondog", MK 44994 [n.d.].

Moondog apparently wrote nine books of rounds, each having about 25 rounds in them. If anyone knows how to locate any of these, I'd love to know.

Catch As Catch Can

I don't know of a book with this title, but there are (at least) two books titled "Catch That Catch Can".

* "Catch That Catch Can: One Hundred English Rounds and Catches", Edited by Mary Catherine Taylor, Margarita Windham, and Claude Simpson, E. C. Schirmer Music Co., Boston, 1945 (and later editions), 92 pp

* "Catch That Catch Can: A Choice Collection of Catches, Rounds, and Canons", John Hilton, facsimile reprint 1970, Da Capo Press, NY [originally published 1652]

I'll add these to my pile to copy out the contents for this thread.

Oh, this is fun. So far, I've bought only one book from those indexed (I already had several), but maybe I really, really need "The Catch Club or Merry Companions"....
Oh, what the hell. It was only $15.75 for two hardcover volumes.
