King's Singers : 40th Anniversary Collection

To celebrate their 40th anniversary the Kings Singers compiled a collection of their most-requested arrangements from the past 15 years since the release of the still best-selling 25th anniversary songbook. Some. like "Danny Boy", "All I Ask Of You" and "Blackbird" date from earlier in the group's history but are still performed regularly by the group and choirs all over the world. Others, such as "Down To The River To Pray", "Under The Sea" and "Africa" have already established themselves in the repertoire of many groups they come in contact with on their tours. Here, then, is a carefully selected mix of folk songs, pop songs and spirituals plus the exquisite Victorian parlor song "The Long Day Closes".

Songlist: Africa, All I Ask Of You, Blackbird, Danny Boy, Down to The River to Pray, The Little Drummer Boy, The Long Day Closes, Lullabye (Goodnight, My Angel), Penny Lane, Rise Up, Shepherd, And Follow, Swing Low, Sweet Chariot, Under The Sea, The Water Is Wide

Philip Lawson : Four Decades of Pop Hits! : Mixed 5-8 Parts : Sheet Music

Philip Lawson : Four Decades of Pop Hits!

Philip Lawson, one of the King's Singers many fine vocal arranging talents, brings us 5 pop hits spanning from 4 decades of excellent music. David Gate's classic pop release, 'Diary,' is tenderly set here by Lawson, with fun background vocals and lots of opportunities for solos. The 1983 #1 hit, 'Africa,' makes a great a cappella feature in Lawson's arrangement, with great harmonies and vocal effects. It's a rock classic tour-de-force! Now available in a clever a cappella setting, "Bohemian Rhapsody" is a perfect pop/jazz feature or as a tongue-in-cheek encore for concert groups. Another gem from David Gates, of Bread, the rich a cappella setting of 'Everything I Own' is sure to create a magical moment in performance. Great for both small and large groups. From the Disney movie Toy Story, 'I Will go Sailing No More' this tender ballad expresses the poignancy of childhood lost.

Songlist: Africa, Bohemian Rhapsody, Everything I Own, I Will Go Sailing No More
