What it’s all about:
Since the age of 16 when I was singing with my first a cappella quintett I was continuously making vocal arrangements for different groups. Due to my work as a professional singer in various ensembles I developed my vocal writing over time and held the ambition to create interesting and melodic parts for every voice – even for the altos and bases! 😉
Generally, I try to avoid repetition signs in order to enable a fluent reading. I found that even in professional ensembles the jumping around in the score just creates unnecessary confusion. Why not print out more pages instead?
My choice of a cappella songs is rather individual. So, I often end up with pieces which haven’t been arranged that often. Like for instance In my room, Money for nothing, Time in a bottle, Make you feel my love, Wake me up. I like to chose the songs according to the motto: you can turn every good piece of music into an even better a cappella arrangement. 🙂
