Each of these songs has been a favorite of directors, singers and audiences at the Oregon Children's Choral Festival - Hundreds of directors and thousands of singers can't be wrong! Do you self and your choir a favor and teach them some of these outstanding children's choir songs today!

Malecki Music Merit Award

Some of our Songs have won prestigious awards, coveted by composers everywhere, like the Malecki Music (Now J.W. Peppers) "Merit Award". this award is given to just a few new songs each year to mark them as exceptional and outstanding new choral composition. Hey, we didn't make this up... Malecki did!

Festival Favorites!

There are also times when you just want to toot your own horn... and since we've had the honor of being commissioned for the Oregon Children's Choral Festival every other year or so... and nearly all of our songs have been the over whelming favorite of singers, directors and audiences at the festivals, we thought we should create some way to call attention to songs that we were sure you would love... because they have already become favorites at this large festival of 1600-2200 kids! So we created the "Festival Favorite Series" When ever you see this seal, you'll know that you've found a truly a great song. A song that your kids will love to sing and you'll find yourself pulling out year after year like so many other directors have.

The haunting yet whimsical quality of this piece, almost folk-like in nature, is truly refreshing! The composer's lyrics center around a child who loves to sing during the day while playing, and at night "cries for those who have never loved and for those who never sing." These words will stir the emotions of all who hear them, and the lovely, flowing music really lets them shine!
