What goes around, comes around

Choral training: Whittaker and Kodaly

It's well-known that the Whittaker Library is named after one of our early Principals, William Gillies Whittaker.  (That explains the name of this blog, too: Whittaker Live.)

How nice to think that after all these years, Whittaker's editions of folk song sight singing books should again be requested for choral use.  Well done, Professor Whittaker!  (We've actually got a lot of his editions, not just in the choral collection.  Take a look here ...)

Whittaker's choral training books are being used alongside the better-known Zoltan Kodaly materials.
