"How About You". This a cappella tour-de-force is designed to feature a quartet or the entire choir. This vocal adaptation of the Rosemary Clooney/Hi-Lo's recording will challenge the most adept vocalists and will likewise impress the haughtiest self-proclaimed vocal jazz aficionado. "For All We Know" is a lush four-voice a cappella ballad for soprano soloist. Written for and performed by UNC's SUS 4. The inclusion of the verse at the end is inspired by Mark Murphy's rendition. "Cielito Lindo" is a traditional tune with very unusual rhythm approach. Tempo: breakneck. Requires good, strong sopranos. This intense rubato arrangement of the Rogers & Hart classic " My Funny Valentine", though accessible to an upper-level high school SSAA group with some jazz experience, is challenging and muscially rewarding enough for the collegiate ensemble as well. Ranges are moderate: Soprano I extends up to F5, Alto II down to Bb3, keeping the harmonies close. A soprano solo is featured in the bridge over a three-part background, leading to a dramatic high point at "Stay, little Valentine, stay!" Suggestions for breaths, expressive markings and dynamics are detailed in the score.
