A House Is Not a Home

Music by Burt Bacharach, Lyrics by Hal David

Originally Performed by Dionne Warwick

"A House Is Not a Home" is a 1964 song recorded by American singer Dionne Warwick, and written by the team of Burt Bacharach and Hal David for the 1964 film of the same name, starring Shelley Winters and Richard Todd. The song was a modest hit in the United States for Warwick, peaking at #71 on the pop singles chart as the B-side of the top 40 single, "You'll Never Get to Heaven (If You Break My Heart)". Another version of the song, by Brook Benton, which was the version that appeared in the film, was released at nearly the same time. It debuted two weeks earlier on the Billboard Hot 100. Benton's version split airplay with Warwick's, and ultimately peaked at #75. Despite its modest initial success, the song went on to achieve greater renown through frequent recordings by other artists, including a hit version in 1981 by Luther Vandross.

Various Arrangers : Women's Broadway Vol 3

Burt Bacharach and Hal David's powerful ballad "A House Is Not a Home" was made famous by Dionne Warwick and recently showcased on Glee. Vocally challenging and full of deep emotion, this setting offers rich rewards for concert and pop groups. Now in an exciting a cappella setting of "Seize the Day". the showstopper from the award-winning composer Alan Menken, was featured in the Disney film and Broadway musical Newsies. It begins with a compelling chorale-like opening and then explodes into rhythm that encourages us all to "seize the day!." Surely one of the greatest songs of all time, "With a Song in My Heart" the Rodgers & Hart's classic romantic ballad, will produce warm smiles all around as you luxuriate in the lush harmonies of this superb a cappella arrangement. The beautiful song "It Only Takes a Moment" from Hello Dolly in a lush a cappella ballad setting! With heartfelt lyrics, rubato phrases, and rich choral harmonies, this will be a wonderful feature for jazz, pop and concert choirs.

Songlist: A House Is Not A Home, It Only Takes a Moment, Seize the Day, With A Song In My Heart

Featuring fully restored Black and White footage and remixed audio in 5.1 and DTS, this program presents a stunning performance from one of the most versatile jazz singers of all time.
