The Musical Setting of Eight Choruses for Typical Music Classes of Grades Four to Six

The Musical Setting of Eight Choruses for Typical Music Classes of Grades Four to Six

Date: September 1942
Creator: Hamilton, Mary Joe
Description: These eight were selected as typical lyrics to meet the diverse interests of students in the intermediate grades and to aid the teachers of those students in transmitting desired precepts and ideals. The poems are short and varied in verse form. The subject matter ranges from pirates and fairies to one's own conscience and Christmas; the moods, from whimsicality and nonsense to patriotism and reverence. The marked poetic devices influencing the choice of these particular lyrics are their rhythmical and alliterative quality; their rich, lively, yet correct language; their vivid imagery; their emotional appeal; and in a few cases their narrative quality.
