This document examines trends and addresses common issues related to sight singing, including financial considerations, use of time, specific instructional strategies, independent learning, and the importance of selecting quality choral literature. It features a comprehensive sight-singing anthology that utilizes choral scores from various time periods found exclusively in the Choral Public Domain Library, www.cpdl.org. Available for students to access online at school or at home instantly and for free, this program is designed to support music literacy and promote independent learning in the developing mixed chorus. The anthology of quality repertoire is organized by difficulty level and historical time period, and introduces aural skills concepts in a systematic way. All of the selected pieces may be used for pedagogically sequenced daily sight singing as well as concert performance, and the volume of literature available allows for new sight-singing experiences every day of the academic year.
