A Wealth of Nations

£1.75

Mostly in unison, but splitting into a simple 2 part section at the very end. Starting with a trumpet fanfare – this begins with all the majesty and grandeur of the opening ceremony. A song about the wonderful spectacle of all nations together, competing in one place. It lists many of the countries – so it’s also a great Geography lesson.


A great Olympics opening ceremony song

Mostly in unison, but splitting into a simple 2 part section at the very end. Starting with a trumpet fanfare – this begins with all the majesty and grandeur of the opening ceremony. A song about the wonderful spectacle of all nations together, competing in one place. It lists many of the countries – so it’s also a great Geography lesson.
Welcome… to our Olympic celebrations;
Welcome… to our festival of life; Welcome all… to this great wealth of nations; To the passion and excitement, To the progress down the long And winding road towards achievement, That we bring to you in song. In this, the opening ceremony, Our singers represent Every country, every island, mainland, State and continent…. Welcome!

This song is written for Key Stages 2 and 3 with these purposes in mind.

Improving words and diction, this piece is great for literacy in the classrom (and Geography!) It’s a simple introduction to part singing for children. It should be enjoyable enough for the children to want to sing it.
