Perfect Harmony: A Muscial Journey with the Boys Choir of Harlem

by Charles R. Smith, Jr.

Published by Jump at the Sun / Hyperion, 2002
32 pages
ISBN: 0-7868-0758-X

Ages 7 - 11

Thirteen original poems about music are accompanied by photographs of the Boys Choir of Harlem in a book that celebrates both music-making in general and the spirit and energy of that one extraordinary group. From the four haiku that evoke each of the four musical voices (soprano, alto, tenor and bass) to poems that pulse with musical rhythms and jangle like a performer's nerves, Charles R. Smith captures essential elements of musical performance in his writing, while his photographs of the Boys Choir of Harlem hum with a music all their own. A glossary of musical terms, and one of poetry terms, rounds out this volume. CCBC Categories: Poetry.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
