Your jazz, show, and concert choirs will all sound fantastic singing this classic Gershwin ballad "But Not for Me". This new a cappella arrangement offers beautiful lush harmonies with a female solo feature. Closes with one of Ira's most creative lyrics: "But there's no knot for me." The expressive ballad "When I Fall in Love" has been expertly arranged for a cappella mixed voices. A classic song plus a classic setting equals a memorable performance experience for all. Israel Kamakawiwo'ole's Hawaiian-style "Over the Rainbow" has become a prevalent part of today's popular music. Performed in Glee's first season finale by Matthew Morrison and Mark Salling, the unique setting has been sung by several American Idol contestants and featured in many TV shows and movies. In this creative arrangement, a divisi choir accompanies the soloist, duet, or small group, performing a cappella or with optional piano, ukulele, or guitar. "The More I See You" - Originally released in 1945, this standard continues to touch hearts. Langford's advanced vocal jazz setting, dividing into multiple voice parts, really brings the melody and lyrics to life. Worth the rehearsal time! "Someone to Watch Over Me" - Originally written as an up-tempo number for the musical Oh Kay!, Ira convinced George that it was better as a ballad. The lush, challenging harmonies in this arrangement prove that Ira was right!
