Peter Schickele : Go For Broke - A Comedy For Chorus : SATB : 01 Songbook : 462-00031

Peter Schickele : Go For Broke - A Comedy For Chorus

Around the turn of the 17th century of small group of Italian noblemen and composers, seeking to re-create classic Greek tragedy as they understood it. invented the opera. A somewhat earlier, simpler, and less revolutionary form of musical storytelling was the madrigal opera or madrigal comedy developed by Vecchi and other composers. These works, which were not necessarily staged, consisted of a series of madrigals that told a comic story; unlike opera as we have come to know it, however, this was basically choral form, with vocal ensemble playing the part of a narrator as well as that of each individual character.

Go For Broke is patterned on this model. It consists of six madrigals, that tell the story of a man who find out that good luck is not enough. Sometimes the chorus' words are those of a narrator (Prologue: "Here's John Q. Public..."), and sometimes they are those of our hero himself, or his friend the bartender, or the host of people who descend upon him when good fortune strikes (the middle numbers: Taxes, Charity, and Company at the Bar). The Finale even has a moral. The piece may be done as a concert work or it may be staged in a variety of ways. Although some of the sections may, at the discretion of the performing group, employ solo voices, GO FOR BROKE is basically a story told by a chorus.

Songlist: Prologue, Taxes, Charity, Kin, Company at the Bar, Finale

Various Arrangers : Fun Sounds!

These songs gives your choir the chance to sing something different and have lots of fun while doing so! "A Song Of Rain" gives your chorus a chance to play with sound: tone clusters build, and the choral wind machine cranks up, to herald the storm. Then the choral "pitter-patter," using hocket and overlapping rhythms, portrays the rain falling on parched Australian towns. Elizabeth Barrett Browning meets Mae West in this swing setting of the immortal love poem "How Do I Love Thee?", paraphrased by the composer. "Boh-doo" and "wah-wah" scat passages put an original spin on this text, and bring the house down when it is performed with gusto. Winner of the Diva Complex 1996 Composition Contest. The utterly silly text free-associates from "Tango Dada" ("A tutu and also a tattoo") as the chorus sings sultry tango rhythms. With castanets, of course! Written for Diva Complex. With pentatonic tunes backed by syncopated repeated patterns "Make Melody", in 4/4 throughout, recalls Alice Parker's leading of improvisatory sings.

I Can, Can! : 2-Part : Stephen L Lawrence : Stephen L Lawrence : Sheet Music : 15-2376H : 9781429101295

Stephen L Lawrence : I Can, Can!

"Classically" refreshing, "I Can, Can!" quotes melodies from Offenbach's famous Can-Can in "Orpheus in the Underworld." Wow! A novelty piece that is also a vehicle for learning a 'masterwork' and sending a positive message to all about working hard to succeed! Looking for the secret to success? It's simple: "Just plan your work, then work your plan; It's easy if you say, 'I Can!'" Add sparkle to your performance by optionally featuring teachers or administrators in a Can-Can kick line for the grand finale. (A little shy, are they? Students will do just fine instead!) Easy choreography and performance suggestions are included.
