Deke Sharon : Women's Classic Pop Vol 2

"Fields of Gold" - If it wasn't written by Sting, this haunting melody could easily be a traditional English fold song. The melody moves through all four women's parts, with the background texture changing in each verse, ranging from arpeggiated polyphony to warm close harmony. "Here Comes the Sun" - Perfect for a spring concert, this bright Beatles classic features rich harmonies and light arpeggiated textures resulting in a warm sound without being too complex. The melody is in the Soprano 1 line, allowing either a group or individual solo. "Mama I'm A Big Girl Now" - This playful song from Hairspray brings the sound of the early 1960's to life with a universal theme. The many verses can be sung by different soloists. "Songbird" - Based on the Eva Cassidy recording, this honest, emotional ballad features light arpeggiated textures and soaring harmonies supporting a gorgeous, heartfelt soprano melody with occasional duet/trio lines. "When I'm Sixty-Four" - Playful, sweet, melodic... this arrangement brings out all of the best elements of this Beatles ditty, with the melody bouncing between the various voices. When your singers are sixty-four, they'll still be humming along to this timeless classic!

Sarah Quartel : Songbird

Songbird sets an evocative text describing songbirds that spin tunes of gold. The catchy, colourful melody is first presented by tutti voices, and is then woven through the vocal parts, often to scat accompaniment. The setting ends with an effective passage of close imitation.
