Awake Awake

This simple, beautiful 2 part canon is great for:

  • Taking time to appreciate the simple things in life.
  • Singing a tonic triad (d-m-s; m-s-d')
  • Singing in triple metre - there is an anacrusis.
  • Working with the rhythmic element 'tum ti' (dotted crotchet, quaver / dotted quarter note, eighth note) in triple metre.
