Sing together, discover poetry, build skills, and learn new musical concepts! Written for two to six voices or groups for beginning to intermediate skill levels (plus a few challenges!), this all-new collection of Gathering Rounds moves from easy to challenging over the course of each month and over the course of the year. Gathering Rounds are great for choral warmups, icebreakers, sight-reading, processionals, recessionals, transitions, encores, sing-alongs, and just for fun.


This second volume offers a round for each week of the year featuring poetry and prose by women – some famous, some infamous, some longtime favorites, some newly discovered, all captivating – set to music by Stacey Philipps. These rounds and canons are welcoming, encouraging, flexible, musically and textually meaningful miniatures to enjoy with anywhere from a few people around a campfire to a large choir in a traditional performance space. Each round is rated according to GIA Music's Difficulty Level Criteria from Teaching Music through Performance in Choir.


A portion of the proceeds from this collection will benefit the Institute for Composer Diversity. Find out about the resources available through this excellent organization at
