Welcome to our online shop


Our book "Voices in Chorus: Songs and their Stories from the Big Orkney Song Project" by Sarah Jane Gibbon is available online exclusively from us.  You can even get it signed by the author if you wish!  Please let us know if you would like us to personalise it for you.

This book is the culmination of a two year Heritage Lottery Funded project called The Big Orkney Song Project, in which Sarah Jane Gibbon, Emily Turton and Aimee Leonard gathered together all the songs of Orkney they could find.  Although the two year funded part of the project is up, the process is constantly ongoing with Orkney Singers reworking, reinvigorating and bringing to a new audience old, lost or nearly forgotten Orkney songs.  You can access the Big Orkney Song Project collection in the audio library of the Orkney Archive.  You can also buy the book and listen to the accompanying cd!

(a sample of the book is shown here)










The book contains information on the 25 songs reworked during the project, versions of  some of these are also available for free download from this website.  Others, like Tammo the Tractor, were especially recorded for the book!  The book contains full lyrics and musical notation so you can play along whilst listening to the music.

We are pleased to be able to offer the book at the special online price of £11.00 plus £2.50 postage and packing.  If you'd like Sarah Jane to sign the book then please get in touch with us by clicking here.



Alternatively, if you live locally and would like to pick the book up, then please get in touch with us to arrange this.
