Each of the 6 voice parts in this layered song has just one short, repeated phrase, which has a different rhythm as well as different notes from the others. The parts can all be sung at the same time or in various groupings, & the sound changes with each combination. There are some clashes & cross rhythms, which singers may need a few goes at, but with such short lines (& you don’t have to sing them all) I’ve categorised this song as Quick & Easy

A singing friend showed me the words: “The earth has music for those who listen” written on her T-shirt. I loved the words & very soon found myself playing with them. This song begs to be sung whilst wandering around (inside or outside), encircling each other and any listeners.
