    Don't Open The Box  by Caroline Picking & Edward Preston - 7 to 13 yrs - KS2, KS3  (2m 07s)
    _______________________________________________

    Theme - self control, keeping a lid on the ‘Pandora’s Box’ of destructive thoughts and emotions

    ______________________________

    Content Using the metaphor of Pandora’s Box, this song makes a strong statement about keeping nasty thoughts and words under control - for everyone’s benefit!  Obviously, it's important to share about our problems in order to process negative feelings in a controlled way, but the message of this song is that allowing anger and bitterness to spill over onto others causes those destructive emotions to spread and grow.  Punchy, assertive and with a dramatic edge, this song is strengthening and empowering for children to sing.

    _________________________________________

    Theme – Nativity, Mary rides a donkey from Galilee to Bethlehem, Christmas
    _________________________________________

    __________________________

    Theme – Anticipating Easter, remembering the hill with three crosses
    __________________________

    Content – the verses each take a different aspect of Easter.  Verse 1 reflects spring, and the changes in nature that tell us Easter’s on the way; verse 2 is all about chocolate and Easter cake; verse 3 is about people doing special things at Easter, painting eggs, making bonnets, singing in church etc. The chorus recalls the Christian Easter story, as we 'travel in time to the hill of three crosses' to remember Jesus' sacrifice on the cross - and the joy of the resurrection.  Hosanna!

    _____________________

    Theme - Christmas, joy, excitement, birth of Jesus

    _____________________

    Content - This deliciously Christmassy ballad that combines the ‘feel’ of a contemporary winter celebration with the recollection of the birth of Jesus thousands of years ago. The first verse focuses upon Christmas decorations, streets full of people doing their Christmas shopping and the sound of carols in the air, but also reminds us to think of that first Christmas in a stable far away.  The second verse reverses the thinking, beginning with the events at Bethlehem, then coming back to the present day, with Christmas trees, Christmas cake, and the conclusion that it's a time to give thanks for all God's blessings.

    The lovely harmony parts and Christmassy feel make this song particularly suitable for choir use.

    The Books Of Life

    The Books Of Life by Pete O'Hare - 7 to 13 yrs - KS2, KS3  (2m 37s)

    _______________________________ 

    Theme - life choices, love, hope, peace, trust, faith

    _______________________________ 

    Content - In life’s journey, what ‘book’ do we follow and where will it lead? The books are metaphorical – books of love, hope, peace, and trust – and the lyrics explore the purpose of ‘reading’ those books.  And ‘will the story be retold, one day when we are growing old?’ A gentle, thoughtful song about choice of direction in life. Very suitable for assembly.
