Round Songs

A Song which is started at different times by different people or different groups of people in a gathering. Usually one section sings the first line and as they start the second line, the next section begins with the first line again. Often simple songs but with a remarkable built-in Counterpoint. Many Nursery Rhymes such as 3 Blind Mice and Pop Goes The Weasel work very well as rounds but so do Carols such as We Three Kings and Classics such as Frere Jacques and London Bridge.
