Songbooks and Children's Cantatas
Mr. Battles has written numerous songbooks and children's cantatas/musicals that have been sung and played around the country. Listed below are the currently in print works in this category. (Note: Go to the Gospel Music/Dottie Rambo page/tab to access more about The Dottie Rambo 60th Anniversary Songbook.)
This unison, very singable and memorizable cantata will appeal to 4 year-olds through 12 year-olds. Popular songs so far include "Something Very Special," "Ain't Gonna Waste No Time," and "Jesus Christ! Messiah! King!" At the moment the cantata exists as lead line/lyrics/chord notation form only because Mr. Battles has not had time to arrange the musical accompaniment (piano). The songs of the cantata will be emailed as pdf musical lead line documents until it has been fully arranged for piano. The lead line pdfs cost $5.
Any children's music arranger who would like to try his/her hand at composing a simple arrangement for this cantata (and be paid by royalties/sales, as the composer is paid), please feel free to contact Mr. Battles via this website.
