Paul Simon is certainly one of the greatest songwriters of the modern popular song and here are some classics that are sure to please. The phenomenal Simon & Garfunkel #1 hit from 1970 "Bridge Over Troubled Water" in a powerful a cappella setting! From the wistful opening phrases, this iconic song builds to a full-voiced forte, alternating between rich homophonic choral textures and solo melodies with vocal accompaniment sections, before its quiet and gentle closing tones. The King's Singers setting of the famous Simon and Garfunkel song "April Come She Will" explores the seasons through a gentle vocal tapestry of rhythm and rich harmony with a smooth lead floating above it all. "Baby Driver" - Sheer, unbridled fun! For college or adult jazz chorus, this arrangement as sung by the New York Voices is a bit tricky, but well worth the effort. It features incredible harmony and rhythm and some a cappella sections, but the purpose of this piece is not to get technical-just to have fun! Four-part scat singing frames the piece on either end, while your baritone soloist goes to town (with great choral support) on each verse. Baby Driver, extracted from the New York Voices Songs of Paul Simon CD, is a toe-tappin', hand-clappin' jazz party. Invite everyone you know!
