Barbershop Music Arrangements

Barbershop is one of the areas of the a cappella world where finding arrangements isn’t hard – there are many, many outlets for them. Too many, in fact. It’s sort of like doing a Google search – winnowing down your search results to what you’re actually looking for, and excluding the stuff you don’t want or need. Well, Primarily A Cappella has done that search for you, and we’ve narrowed down the barbershop arrangements section to the stuff that’s really worth singing. The only way we could make it easier for you is if we sang it for you – but it would be a lot more fun for you if you sang it yourself. These close harmony arrangements in the barbershop style are suitable for both beginning and experienced quartets and choruses.

Close Harmony For Men : What'll I Do?new

Review: Ed Waesche, one of the Society's most popular and prolific arrangers, borrowed the tag from Renee Craig's arrangement of this classic song. There is probably no greater influence on the world of barbershop music and performance than the inimitable Renee Craig and this is a great example. Measures 26-26 as sung by Platinuum are a bit challenging for the bass, so their version is placed at the end of the arrangement as an option.

Songlist: What'll I Do?

Barbershop Harmony Society : Woodshedding Folio

Review: The origin of the word "woodshedding" is vague, to say the least. But from what little we know of the beginnings of the barbershop style of singing, it is clear that amateur quartets worked out the songs they sang by ear - a sort of trial and error method that became known as woodshedding. There is little doubt that the same is true of our early Society quartets -- they "woodshedded' the chords that supported the melody. Today, the written arrangement has almost replaced harmonizing by ear. While published arrangements offer more opportunities for more quartets to learn more music -- and at a faster pace -- it would be unfortunate if woodshedding were to diappear from the barbershop quartet scene entirely. So the purpose of this folio is to encourage men to participate in the woodshedding experience.

Songlist: Say Au Revoir, But Not Good-Bye , I Was Strolling Home With Jennie , Since Nellie Went Away , Only A Bunch Of Violets, I Love Only You, I Never Thought I'd Miss You As I Do, Baby Mine, When The Blue Sky Turns To Gold, Why Did You Say Good-Bye , Just Once More, Let Me Hear Those Good Old Chords , Where The Mississippi Flows , Good Morning Carrie, In Good Old New York Town , The Picture That I Love Best Of All , Break The News To Mother , Rosebud, What's The Use Of Loving If You Can't Love All The Time , Make A Fuss Over Me , Please Come And Play In My Yard , Look For Me When The Lilacs Bloom, Blue Bell , Somewhere, When The Bees Are In The Hive, Hear What The Rose Is Saying, We'll Be Walkin', Huggin', Kissin' , For Old Time's Sake , Starlight, She Waits By The Deep Blue Sea, The Uncle Sammy Girls , Like A Star That Falls From Heaven , Poor John

Close Harmony For Men : Coney Island Baby / We All Fall - 4 Charts and Parts CD

Review: "Coney Island Baby" and "We All Fall" were first conbined as a medley by Les Applegate in 1924 for the musical comedy "No, No, Nanette" This song has traditionally been started with a "bell chord" by having the bass sing and hold is first note on the word "oh," followed quickly by the addition of the baritone note, then the lead, and finally the tenor. Continue to "goodbye" without a breath. Most importantly, entertain your audience and have fun while singing this classic barbershop audience pleaser. Four copies of the sheet music arrangement plus a CD featuring the full performance plus part-predominant tracks (Tenor, Lead, Baritone, Bass), sung with lyrics.

Close Harmony For Men : Feliz Navidad - 4 Charts and Parts CD

Review: The song 'Feliz Navidad' is one of the most popular and often-heard songs of the Christmas season. It was written and recorded by the Puerto Rican artist Jose Feliciano in 1970. The spanish words are derived from a common holiday greeting 'Feliz navidad, prospero ano y felicidad' meaning 'prosperous year and happiness.' The percussion parts can be played by the choral musicians, or assigned to a small group of percussionist. In either case, the pulse and tempo should remain steady and constant. If you are performing this song in a chorus rather than a quartet, you could try having some of the singers create the percussion parts using vocal percussion or body percussion by imitating the sounds of the maracas, tambourine, cowbell and woodblock. Four copies of the sheet music arrangement plus a CD featuring the full performance plus part-predominant tracks (Tenor, Lead, Baritone, Bass), sung with lyrics.

Close Harmony For Men : Give Me a Barbershop Song - 4 Charts and Parts CD

Review: "Give Me a Barbershop Song" was written by Roy Dawson, a member of the British Association of Barbershop Singers (BABS). The verse should be sung in a free, almost conversational, style. Work to establish three four-bar phrases, even if you choose to lift or breathe after every two measures. The chorus should have a light swing feel, like an old soft shoe number. Energize the singing all the way through the end of the song. Pay special attention to the beathing suggestions in measures 35-39 and 67-71; this overlapping scheme helps create a continuous sound and flow characteristic of the barbershop style. As always, have fun entertaining your audience! Four copies of the sheet music arrangement plus a CD featuring the full performance plus part-predominant tracks (Tenor, Lead, Baritone, Bass), sung with lyrics.

Songlist: 4 copies of Give Me a Barbershop Song, CD features part-predominant tracks, sung with lyrics., Full Performance, Tenor, Lead , Baritone, Bass

Close Harmony For Men : Harmony Leads the Way - 4 Charts and Parts CD

Review: Composer Joe Liles has been an employee of the Barbershop Harmony Society since 1975 and has served as the Society's Executive Director, Director of Music Education and Services, and as the Music Publications Editor. He is also a composer and arranger of music for religious and popular groups, as well as barbershop quartets and choruses. His catalog contains hundreds of original compositions and arrangements. 'Harmony Leads the Way' should be sung legato, but with strong energy and clear diction. Allow the syncopated rhythms to unify into a steady meter of two without too much accent in the line. This piece would make a great opener or closer. Four copies of the sheet music arrangement plus a CD featuring the full performance plus part-predominant tracks (Tenor, Lead, Baritone, Bass), sung with lyrics.

Close Harmony For Men : Hello Mary Lou - 4 Charts and Parts CD

Review: "Hello Mary Lou" was written by Gene Pitney, and performed by Ricky Nelson in 1961. It has been recorded by many groups including Led Zeppelin and Queen. The style of this arrangement is similar to the best-known version by Ricky Nelson. The song should have a moderate duple meter feeling, like an easy country two-step. On the second verse, be sure to feature the lead voice in the musical texture. At measure 41 allow the tenor to join the lead feature. Keep the tempo steady all the way through to the tag, but feel free to hod the last chord as long as you want for a strong ending. Four copies of the sheet music arrangement plus a CD featuring the full performance plus part-predominant tracks (Tenor, Lead, Baritone, Bass), sung with lyrics.

Close Harmony For Men : Silhouettes - 4 Charts and Parts CD

Review: 'Silhouettes' was a hit single by the Rays in 1957. Tom Gentry's arrangement is an audience pleaser that can incorporate visual enhancements such as sunglasses, leather jackets, and choreography. Be sure to let the 'doo-wop' swing feeling be natural and unrushed, with hte melody always prominent in the texture. Keep the diction clear and precise so that the audience can understand the humor of the story on the text 'you're on the wrong block.' Feel free to experiment with the smoothness of the bass line by having the section sing on an open vowel such as 'du' rather than 'dm.' Four copies of the sheet music arrangement plus a CD featuring the full performance plus part-predominant tracks (Tenor, Lead, Baritone, Bass), sung with lyrics.

Songlist: Silhouettes, CD features part-predominant tracks, sung with lyrics., Full Performance, Tenor, Lead , Baritone, Bass

Close Harmony For Men : Sound Celebration - 4 Charts and Parts CD

Review: "Sound Celebration" was written by composer and arranger Tom Gentry in 1996 for a women's barbershop chorus from Wisconsin. Tom fell in love with barbershop music at age 16 when he sang in his high school's production of The Music Man, and Barbershop has been a big part of his life ever since. Sing the introduction with a full and energizd sound, taking time to enjoy the chords in measure 3. In measures 13-20 each section has a melodic solo. Be sure to bring out these melodies so your audience can hear them clearly. Four copies of the sheet music arrangement plus a CD featuring the full performance plus part-predominant tracks (Tenor, Lead, Baritone, Bass), sung with lyrics.

Songlist: 4 copies of Sound Celebration, CD features part-predominant tracks, sung with lyrics., Full Performance, Tenor, Lead , Baritone, Bass

Close Harmony For Men : The Longest Time - 4 Charts and Parts CD

Review: Billy Joel is an American pop music icon who has written and recorded Top ten hits over three separate decades. He has won six Grammy awards for his music, and has sold over 100 million records. Because the melody of 'The Longest Time' has a wide range, be sure to keep the singing light, supported, and free in the upper ranges. Feel free to add finger snaps on the off beats to keep the flow and feel of the original recording. The background 'oo' and 'ah' parts should support the melody with legato articulation. Four copies of the sheet music arrangement plus a CD featuring the full performance plus part-predominant tracks (Tenor, Lead, Baritone, Bass), sung with lyrics.

Songlist: Longest Time, CD features part-predominant tracks, sung with lyrics., Full Performance, Tenor, Lead , Baritone, Bass

Close Harmony For Men : Two Patriotic Classics - 4 Charts and Parts CD

Review: "The Star Spangled Banner" and "America the Beautiful" are two of the best-known (and most-loved) songs in America. You will note that the melody of the Banner is passed between the lead and bass sections to preserve the close harmony voicing in this rangy melody. Work to achieve choral balance such that the audience can hear and follow the melody. in the overlay to America the Beautiful, have a small group, or even the audence, sing the unison melody first. Next, have a chorus or quartet sing the overlay section alone. last time through, combine the two parts. Feel free to improvise harmonies in the tag section! Four copies of the sheet music arrangement plus a CD featuring the full performance plus part-predominant tracks (Tenor, Lead, Baritone, Bass), sung with lyrics.

Close Harmony For Men : Under the Boardwalk - 4 Charts and Parts CD

Review: In 1964 the legendary pop group The Drifters recorded Artie Resnick and Kenny Young's "Under the Boardwalk." It has become one of the most recognized popular songs ever recorded. Have fun singing this audience pleaser by making up a visual plan for your performance. For example, you could wear colorful shirts and sunglasses, or create simple choreography to showcase the tenors and basses when they sing the melody on the refrain. Any visual references in the text could be accompanied by appropriate gestures that entertain your listeners. Allow the syncopated rhythms to sound free and agile while maintaining a god connected flow to the singing. Four copies of the sheet music arrangement plus a CD featuring the full performance plus part-predominant tracks (Tenor, Lead, Baritone, Bass), sung with lyrics.

Songlist: 4 copies of Under the Boardwalk, CD features part-predominant tracks, sung with lyrics., Full Performance, Tenor, Lead , Baritone, Bass
