This close harmony version of the Simon and Garfunkel classic "The Sound Of Silence" works well for beginning groups looking for interesting material, or advanced groups interested in a beautiful mood piece allowing for emotional interpretation. Mixing close harmony with arpeggiated textures, this arrangement allows each voice a turn with the solo line, and plenty of opportunity for rubato and expressive dynamics. This upbeat finger snappin' pop version of the doo-wop classic " Rockin' Robin" will add some spark (and tweet) to your repertoire without being too difficult. The solo moves from part to part, allowing every singer a chance in the spotlight. "Goodbye Old Paint" is a delightful western classic using modern harmonies and approach and "I Don't Know Why I Love You Like I Do" is a ballad of the 40's in block harmonies. The tempo is medium. "Don't Get Around Much Anymore" is one of the many great Ellington songs, arranged here for treble voices. The singers can feel free to alter the scat if it works better that way. "Silent All These Years". Tori Amos broke onto the music scene with this introspective ballad, and this arrangement captures all of the original's delicate moodiness. The background voices weave smooth patterns and ring warm chords. This is an excellent showcase for an expressive soloist (can either be a soprano or alto 1). SSSAA a cappella (4 part with solo).
