Here are resources to help you learn and revise Pete Churchill’s ‘Dig Deep’. You will all learn the main melody line ( soprano) but some of you might also want to learn the lower alto harmony too, so your group sings in 2 parts. There is a full score ( in 4 parts, with the sop and alto lines included), a ‘lead sheet’ for the melody with piano accompaniment, a full performance track, backing track and a version where either Sop or Alto line is slightly easier to hear in the ‘mix’. It’s a fab song – enjoy!!

1. Here is the full performance track

2. Here is the backing track, with piano and rhythm section

3. In this version , the soprano line is clearest in the mix

4. In this version the alto part is clearest in the mix

5. Here are the scores:

 

 

6. Here are 2 more Dig deep tracks, first with the TENOR line clearest, then with the BASS more prominent.

Here is the Sailors Song
