Fields of Gold

Music by Sting

Originally Performed by Sting

"Fields of Gold" and all the other album tracks were recorded at Lake House, Wiltshire, mixed at The Townhouse Studio, London, England and mastered at Masterdisk, New York City. The harmonica solo is played by Brendan Power, and the Northumbrian smallpipes are played by Kathryn Tickell. The music video was directed by Kevin Godley. The cover of the album was photographed at Wardour Old Castle in Wiltshire, as was the cover for the album Ten Summoner's Tales. "Fields of Gold" was the second single released from the album after "If I Ever Lose My Faith in You". The single reached No. 16 on the UK Singles Chart, No. 23 on the Billboard Hot 100 and No. 2 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary Chart.[ It was a hit in Ireland, Germany, The Netherlands, Switzerland and many other countries. The song was included in Sting's first compilations album issued by Sting under the title Fields of Gold: The Best of Sting 19841994 and released in 1994 and in a later compilation The Very Best of Sting & The Police in 1997. It was re-recorded by Sting in 2006 as a bonus track for his classical album Songs from the Labyrinth, in which the song was accompanied entirely by a lute.

Deke Sharon : Women's  Classic Pop Vol 2 : SSAA : Sheet Music

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!

Songlist: Fields of Gold, Here Comes The Sun, Mama, I'm a Big Girl Now, Songbird, When I'm Sixty-Four
