„Our Sweet Love“
Proberbly one of the Beach Boys‘ most beautiful love songs.
„God only knows“
This is a SSATB a-cappella arrangement of the other most beautiful love song by the Beach Boys. 🙂
„Both Sides Now“
Joni Mitchell’s wonderful classic in an atmospheric, lyrical approach.
„Pipes of Peace“
Paul McCartney at his best. Holding a torch for world peace!
McCartney in good old Beatles mode. Very groovy walking bass, catchy melody – what else do we need?
„Silly Love Songs“
A great concert piece for choirs or small groups that have a couple of „silly love songs“ in their program. A big favorite of my choir!
„Wanderlust“ An underrated McCartney song from his time with the Wings. One of my favorites. But beware: you will get addicted to it!
„With a little help from my friends“
A slightly surprising approach to this all time favorite number. Don’t worry – be happy! 😉
„O, what a beautiful mornin'“
From the musical „Oklahoma“. This version presenting the piece in an ‚up tempo‘ 6/8-groove.
„Fields Of Gold“
Sting’s beautiful autumnal love song.
Melissa Horn: „Hur ska det gå?“
Melissa Horn’s groovy „love“ song. It makes use of a bit of vocal percussion and features all the voices equally.
„Vi är från topp till tå“
„Wir sind von Kopf bis Fuss“
Marlene Dietrich’s famous song from the movie „Der blaue Engel“. In concert it can be a great encore piece.
„Eatnemen Vuelie“ from „Frozen“
The „Song of the Earth“ from the movie „Frozen“ composed by Frode Fjellheim.
„America“ from „West Side Story“
After 70 years this energetic masterpiece hasn’t lost anything of its actuality. This SSATB arrangement is not too difficult and a lot of fun!
„Hiking Song“ (Hiking to Hell)
What is this?? A Scottish highland tune paired with AC/DC? That must go to hell! But you’ll be surprised how much they have in common. 🙂 For this arrangement you need a medium high solo voice.
„In My Room“
It’s the Beach Boys again. No surfing and no love song this time. Just „chilling“ in the room….
Didn’t you always want to sing this song? Just brush up your french!
„The Parting Glass“
This is a S(S)ATB a cappella arrangement of the famous Irish folk song „The Parting Glass“. This arrangement combines different versions of the „original“ melody, starting slow and pensive then getting into a faster groove for the next two verses. Could there be a better way to finish a concert (or an evening in the pub)??
Taube/Bryant:“Ett sista glas“
This is a S(S)ATB a cappella arrangement of the famous Irish folk song „The Parting Glass“ in Swedish translation. Both Sven-Bertil Taube and Miriam Bryant recorded the song. In this arrangement I combined different versions of the „original“ melody, starting slow and pensive then getting into a faster groove for the next two verses. Could there be a better way to finish a concert (or an evening in the pub)??
