Various Arrangers : Modern Pop

Coldplay's biggest hit to date "Viva La Vida", this pop juggernaut manages to marry sweeping melodies with repetitive textures reminiscent of Steve Reich of Phillip Glass-esque minimalism. The rich overlapping vocal lines split into as many as nine different parts at times (in addition to the Tenor solo), but the repeating patterns keep it from being challenging. "Fix You" was also recorded by the English alternative band Coldplay, this song explores themes of grief and comfort as it gradually builds to an emotional high point. This a cappella setting intensifies the emotion through powerful vocal writing. A challenging work, but impressive! The 2008 mega-hit "Mercy" by Duffy revives the classic Motown sound, complete with sassy "hoo hoo's" and "uh-uh" and "yeah, yeah, yeah's." The solo is perfect for soprano or alto, and although the end result is full and powerful, this arrangement is surprisingly easy to learn and sing. "I'm Yours" was one of the biggest pop songs of 2008, this arrangement features a tenor solo supported by a six part vocal-instrumental texture, weaving together in a light reggae feel that supports the original's sweet harmonies. The haunting ballad "Apologize" was a #1 hit in 16 countries, including the U.S., making it one of the biggest songs of 20e8. The setting is in the contemporary collegiate a cappella style, featuring simple lines layered into a complex, rich interwoven texture, supporting a gorgeous tenor solo.
