How Deep is the Ocean (How High Is the Sky)

Music by Irving Berlin

Originally Performed by Bing Crosby

"How Deep Is the Ocean " is a popular song written by Irving Berlin in 1932. The song was developed from an earlier Berlin song "To My Mammy" which was sung by Al Jolson in his film Mammy (1930). In the earlier song, the lyrics include the questions "How deep is the ocean? / How high is the sky?" and this was the genesis of "How Deep Is the Ocean?". The song was written at a low point in Berlin's professional and personal life, and is among the select few of his numbers that were introduced on the radio rather than on stage or film. The song is a series of questions posed one after another, the only exception being the second line, "I'll tell you no lie." This song, together with "Say It Isn't So", were huge hits in 1932 and brought Berlin back to the top again.

    Release Date: 1932

Various Arrangers : Love Songs for Female Voices : SSAA : Sheet Music

Various Arrangers : Love Songs for Female Voices

Smooth a cappella harmonies and unique choral textures make the Rodgers & Hart standard "My Romance" an exceptional choice for SSAA ensembles. The warm standard "When I Fall In Love" featured in the movie Sleepless in Seattle, in a stunning a cappella arrangement. The Irving Berlin chestnut : What'll I Do?" Is a delight and varied choral textures and luscious harmonies make "How Deep Is The Ocean?", another Berlin standard, an ideal selection for a cappella female groups. Ultimately romantic! Originally performed by Maxx Factor on The Sing Off Season One, this a cappella arrangement of Love Story is sweet, warm and easy to sing yet full and rich. The melody is in the soprano 2 part with duet and trio lines throughout.

Songlist: My Romance, How Deep is the Ocean (How High Is the Sky), Love Story

It features 14 tracks of blues, standards, and a few new originals, including: Autumn Leaves - Diamonds Made from Rain - Judgement Day - How Deep Is the Ocean - My Very Good Friend the Milkman - River Runs Deep - Rockin' Chair - That's No Way to Get Along - Travelin' Alone - and more.
