Chicago is perhaps the greatest and best-loved creation of writing team John Kander and Fred Ebb. In "We Both Reached for the Gun," Roxie is accused of killing her violent lover and Flynn's argument is that they both "reached for the gun" at the same time--Roxie had no choice but to kill him, or she would have died. In the staging, Roxie is portrayed as Billy's mechanical puppet, which is why the music has a certain mechanical, even clockwork quality to it. This is a patter song, full of long streams of words, so take care not to go too fast. Faber Choral Singles offer a series of beautifully crafted arrangements in a diversity of musical styles for today's choirs. From Broadway, pop and folk to spirituals, gospel and original works, the Faber Choral Singles series guarantees the perfect repertoire for every occasion.
