Christ the King Catholic Primary School

Composer of the Week

Each week we have a 'Composer of the Week' that the children across the school learn about and listen to as they come into school in the morning.

We choose composters from across the world, from the past and present who represent many different musical influences and genres.


See below for this week's 'Composer of the week.'

In the second half of the Summer Term we will be looking at groups who sing 'a capella' ~ this means they don't use any musical instruments- they use their voices as music.
