For 2015, Aldeburgh Music commissioned the composer Nico Muhly to set eight texts of his choice to music. For each new song that Nico has composed, Charanga has created a supporting Unit of Work where musical learning occurs through Listening and Appraising and Learning to Sing and Perform the Songs.
The accompanying Extension Activities document, whilst challenging you to explore the text and their authors, encourages the creation of a topic-based project about Nico Muhly, his life and compositions.
