Thie Olivia Newton-John hit from the '70s "Let Me Be There" translates perfectly as a gospel-edged pop piece for today's choirs. There's a little hint of Elvis, too. Well-crafted choral writing combines with rhythmic drive to make your group come alive. There's a brief hand clapping a cappella section as the piece builds toward the big finish. "Build Me Up Buttercup" - Think collegiate-style a cappella with a street corner, doo-wop twist! Great individual vocal lines layer to make this a full-sounding choral from start to finish. An excellent change of pace in any concert. Scat your way to success with this inventive vocal setting of the '70s favorite "Pick Up the Pieces", a soul classic by the Average White Band. "Your Smiling Face" - A show stopper, for sure! Arranged in a collegiate, street-corner a cappella-style, with a featured Tenor solo. A fantastic change of pace. Considered to be their farewell single, the 1983 ABBA hit "Thank You For The Music" gently grooves in this contemporary a cappella setting from Kirby Shaw. A great choice for smaller ensembles or concert groups. "Without a song or a dance, what are we?"
