Comment on Vocal Union Resources website:
"Great resource for anyone interested in harmony singing, young or old, teacher or practitioner. As anyone knows who's been involved with vocal groups, it's all about finding good arrangements, and it's wonderful that so much excellent material is being made available here. Not only songs but warm ups and riffs and music from other cultures, the kind of things you need to keep rehearsals interesting and fun. Thank you and keep up the good work!"
