Part-Predominant CDs for Barbershop Singers

Each of these CDs features a complete choral production ("full mix") version of the song as performed by professional barbershop singers. Then, separate tracks are provided for each voice part; Tenor, Lead, Baritone and Bass Each track 'highlights' a voice part of the group, for example: on the Tenor track, the Tenor part is 'predominant', with the rest of the group in the background. This helps the vocalist easily identify their part, allowing them to better follow their music, and to hear how their part fits into the composition.

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.

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 : 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.

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.

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 : Harmony Leads the Way - 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. The CD features part-predominant tracks, sung with lyrics.

Songlist: Harmony Leads The Way, Part-predominant CD, 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.

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.
