Perfect for High School or community choirs.

Gordan Hamilton : The Facebook Song

Irving Fine : McCord's Menagerie : TBB 3 Parts : Sheet Music

Irving Fine : McCord's Menagerie

Subtitled "Four Vivariations", Irving Fine's McCord's Menagerie, are settings of humorous poems by David McCord. With the bumbling "loo's" accompanying the tenor melody, Fine's setting of Vultur Gryphus implies a harmless creature. Instead of the movie western's ominous bird associated with death, Fine's animal seems too lazy and stupid to get his own food! Jerboa, classified as the genus jaculus jaculus, is as active and scary in Fine's world as Vultur Gryphus is laid back and friendly. Fine agrees with those to whom a darting (the translation of the Latin jaculus) small rodent is sinister and creepy, attributes he conveys through abrupt entrances and minor tonality. In Mole McCord compares the over-soul of man, a Unitarian concept put forth by Ralph Waldo Emerson, with the limited capacities of the mole. In Clam, Fine and McCord give in to their silliest selves. McCord observes how man the diner and clam the dinner (in chowder no less) both evolved from the same ancestor; man is saved from the clam's fate, according to McCord, by his own initiative and work ethic. Fine has a lot of fun with the sounds suggesting insouciance, which explains why the clam never got ahead! Lots of fun here.

Songlist: Jerboa, Vultur Gryphus, Clam, Mole

Peter Schickele : Go For Broke - A Comedy For Chorus : SATB : 01 Songbook : 462-00031

Peter Schickele : Go For Broke - A Comedy For Chorus

Around the turn of the 17th century of small group of Italian noblemen and composers, seeking to re-create classic Greek tragedy as they understood it. invented the opera. A somewhat earlier, simpler, and less revolutionary form of musical storytelling was the madrigal opera or madrigal comedy developed by Vecchi and other composers. These works, which were not necessarily staged, consisted of a series of madrigals that told a comic story; unlike opera as we have come to know it, however, this was basically choral form, with vocal ensemble playing the part of a narrator as well as that of each individual character.

Go For Broke is patterned on this model. It consists of six madrigals, that tell the story of a man who find out that good luck is not enough. Sometimes the chorus' words are those of a narrator (Prologue: "Here's John Q. Public..."), and sometimes they are those of our hero himself, or his friend the bartender, or the host of people who descend upon him when good fortune strikes (the middle numbers: Taxes, Charity, and Company at the Bar). The Finale even has a moral. The piece may be done as a concert work or it may be staged in a variety of ways. Although some of the sections may, at the discretion of the performing group, employ solo voices, GO FOR BROKE is basically a story told by a chorus.

Songlist: Prologue, Taxes, Charity, Kin, Company at the Bar, Finale

Various Arrangers : Fun Sounds!

These songs gives your choir the chance to sing something different and have lots of fun while doing so! "A Song Of Rain" gives your chorus a chance to play with sound: tone clusters build, and the choral wind machine cranks up, to herald the storm. Then the choral "pitter-patter," using hocket and overlapping rhythms, portrays the rain falling on parched Australian towns. Elizabeth Barrett Browning meets Mae West in this swing setting of the immortal love poem "How Do I Love Thee?", paraphrased by the composer. "Boh-doo" and "wah-wah" scat passages put an original spin on this text, and bring the house down when it is performed with gusto. Winner of the Diva Complex 1996 Composition Contest. The utterly silly text free-associates from "Tango Dada" ("A tutu and also a tattoo") as the chorus sings sultry tango rhythms. With castanets, of course! Written for Diva Complex. With pentatonic tunes backed by syncopated repeated patterns "Make Melody", in 4/4 throughout, recalls Alice Parker's leading of improvisatory sings.

Fashion Victim, Drama Queen : SSA : Stephen Hatfield : Stephen Hatfield : 48005170 : 073999375657

Stephen Hatfield : Fashion Victim, Drama Queen

Here we have a slangy de profundis about trying to placate your peer group. The soli section acts as the Drama Queen, while the rest of the choir takes the part of the peer group, commenting on the outsider in a mixture of English and Tex-Mex Spanish slang. (There's only a half dozen Spanish phrases to learn.) There is a clapping ostinato throughout the piece which looks terrific when the whole choir does it, but can also be played with brushes on a snare drum. The piece is not that demanding technically, and entire sections get repeated, although in different keys. Because of the cross-dialogue between the choir and the soli section this chart has lots of potential to be blocked in various ways, and would be perfect for choirs that are looking for a piece that lets them present themselves on stage in an unusual way. The tempo is fairly brisk, the words are humorous, and the overall effect is half positive, half sad and creepy - one of my favourite aesthetic experiences.
