Like Animal Antics, Choosing Chums was also commissioned by Dudley Music Service, and the first performances were given in 2004 by massed choirs by the castle in Dudley Zoo! This six song cantata is designed for Key Stage 2, about the move from primary to secondary school, and how important it is to make friendships and keep them.

The songs are sung by Chrissie Rhodes who went on to form a duo called The Shires!

Best Friend


This is the song from Choosing Chums that I used it for my video


'Jersey Stronger Together.'


You can download the materials here.  All bundles come with a piano and vocal score, a score with the vocal line only, a worksheet, and both a vocal and accompaniment mp3 track.
