  5. There is a lovely musical based on the Persephone legend - veryaccessible songs - voices and piano - some unison some in simple harmonies- I think the composer is Geoffrey POgson and it might be Boosey & Hawkes.Have done it several times with kids and they loved it- you could just do one or two songs
     
  6. We have a show based on Pandora's Box, if that's helpful:

  8. A and C Black do some history songs in their songsheet series. They include lots of facts and are very lively so go down well with the children. Ode to the Ancient Greeks costs £8.99 - comes with CD and backing track. It's on the classroom/assembly resource list on the music section of their website - acblack.com/music. All their musci resources are excellent and these songs are ideal for assemblies.
