In the mood

Genre: Music

In the Mood is an anthology of choral arrangements of seventeen classic popular songs by such great names as Fats Waller, George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Jerome Kern, and Richard Rodgers. All the pieces are expertly arranged by the editors to suit the needs of amateur SATB groups--school choirs, youth choirs, or chamber choirs of any description--looking for lighter popular repertoire. There is a mixture of accompanied and unaccompanied numbers in a variety of styles: smoky blues, up-tempo scat, sentimental swing, exuberant Dixieland, sophisticated close-harmony, and a couple of opulent show-stoppers like "Somewhere over the Rainbow."

English romantic partsongs

ISBN: UOM:39015013624823
Release Date: 1986
Genre: Music

There are many misinformed opinions about nineteenth-century England, but some of the more regrettable ones concern music, where the use of the word 'Victorian' is still usually pejorative. In most cases any such opinion is a received one-relatively few people have actually listened to more than a few fragments of 'Victoriana' though the tendency to ridicule the style and much that its period apparently represents may seem natural to anyone performing it today. Yet if the practice of 'early music' teaches us one thing, it should be to approach the music of the past on its own terms and with reference to the cultural climate that nurtured it.
