A part song is a form of choral music which consists of a secular song which has been written or arranged for several vocal parts, commonly SATB choir. It is usually primarily homophonic, with the highest part carrying the melody and the other voices supplying the accompanying harmonies, rather than contrapuntal like a madrigal. Part Songs are intended to be sung unaccompanied unless an instrumental accompaniment is specified.

Some of my favourites:

 

1. A Ram Sam Sam (2-Part Chant) - Morocco

 

A ram sam sam

A ram sam sam,

Gooli gooli gooli gooli gooli

Ram sam sam (repeat)

 

A ravi, A ravi,

Gooli gooli gooli gooli gooli

Ram sam sam (repeat)

 

2. Dona Nobis Pacem (3-Part Song)         

 

Melody               

Dona nobis pacem, pacem;

Dona nobis, pacem.

 

Part 1                  

Dona nobis pacem;

Dona nobis, pacem.

 

Part 2                   

Dona nobis pacem;

Dona nobis, pacem.

 

3. Ging Gang Gooli (2-Part Song)

 

Ging gang gooli, gooli, gooli, gooli watcha

Ging gang goo, ging gang goo,

Ging gang gooli, gooli, gooli, gooli watcha

Ging gang goo, ging gang goo


Heyla, heyla sheyla

Heyla sheyla, heyla, ho-o-o

Heyla, heyla sheyla

Heyla sheyla, heyla, ho


Shalli-wallee, shalli-wallee, shalli-wallee, shalli-wallee

Oompah, oompah, oompah oompah....

 

(At this point you can split your singers into two groups; have one half repeat the "oopah's" while the other half sings the verse again, then switch.)

 

4. Horsey, Horsey (2-Part Song)

 

I like to take a horse and buggy as I go riding through the town,

I love to hear old Dobbin’s clip-clop,

I like to feel the wheels go round.

 

Horsey, horsey, on your way;

We’ve been together for many a day,

So let your tail go swish as the wheels go ‘round;

Giddy up! We’re homeward bound.

 

Horsey. Horsey, don’t you stop;

Just let you feet go clippety clop;

And let your tail go swish as the wheels go ‘round;

Giddy up! We’re homeward bound.

 

5. Kyrie (3-Part Song) - Surinam

 

Kyrie, kyrie, eleison

Kyrie, kyrie, eleison

Kyrie, kyrie, eleison.

 

Oom-pah-pah (Four times, then add #2)

(This is the engine running the carousel)

Oom-sss-sss (Four times, then add #3)

(This is the steam from the engine)

Oom-tiddle-dee-dee (Four times, then add #4)

(These are the penny whistles)

Da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da. Da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da.

(This is the organ)

(Groups are phased out in reverse order)

 

(Divide your group into sections; each one takes a different verse. Imagine you're building up the sounds of one of those old-fashion steam driven carousels!)

 

7. O Be Joyful (3-Part Song)Natalie Sleeth

 

O be joyful; O be jubilant,

Put your sorrows far away,

Come rejoice and sing together this happy day.

 

O be joyful;

O be happy on this day.

 

O be joyful, O be joyful,

O be joyful on this happy day.

 

8.  Orchestra (3-Part Song) - Estonia

 

Drums:

Drum drum, drum drum drum drum, drum drum drum

 

Clarinets:

Yea, o yea, O yea, o yea o yea

 

Flutes:

La la la...

 

9. Rock My Soul (3-Part Song)Spiritual Canon

 

Part 1             

Rock my soul in the bosom of Abraham,

Rock my soul in the bosom of Abraham,

Rock my soul in the bosom of Abraham,

Oh, rock a my soul.

 

Part 2             

So high I can’t get over it,

So low I can’t get under it,

So wide I can’t get around it.

Oh, rock-a my soul.

Rock my soul

Rock my soul

Rock my soul

Oh, rock a my soul.
