Required Resources: 2-pt choir, organ
The tune Royal Oak is a remarkably animated melody.
Jonathan Brannon's arrangement, although certainly singable by adult voices, is most appropriate for children's choirs.
The two parts include a good amount of unison singing and are not difficult when they divide.
The first half of the piece is in F Major; this modulates to G Major for a bright ending.
The organ accompaniment, also playable on piano, is supportive throughout.
If your children's choir knows this tune, this is a very easy anthem to add to their repertoire.
If not, it makes a wonderful introduction to this bouncy British air.
