Various Arrangers : Train Songs for 2-Parts

All Aboard! Everybody loves a train song and this collection is bound to please singers and audiences alike. "Choo Choo Ch' Boogie" - This 1940s classic is the perfect introduction to swing music for developing choirs. Easy voice-leading and a supportive accompaniment make this a breeze to learn. "Paddy Works on the Railway" - The tale of the Irish immigrant workers on America's railroads is cleverly told in this traditional Irish folksong. "I Work Upon the Railway" - This lively folksong setting by Emily Crocker captures the spirit of America's past in an elementary contest piece that's great for featuring your boys. "I've Been Working on the Wabash Cannonball" - These two famous train songs are arranged for young singers in a creative way that includes sound effects, layered rhythm speech and much more! A great choreography showcase, it is a wonderful concert finale! "The Rock Island Line" - Ride the mighty fine line of The Rock Island Line with this clever arrangement of the traditional train folk song. The arrangement starts slowly as the train is leaving the station and fires up to an energetic chugga choo choo as it speeds down the track finally slowing down as it approaches the next station. "Boogie Woogie Choo Choo" - This delightful original by Cristi Cary Miller and Mary Clark that recaptures the time and feel of an earlier era. The boogie piano part keeps everything moving along with its characteristic eight to the bar. Simple harmonies help make this piece accessible for the youngest of jazz choirs. "The Ballad of Casey Jones" - This traditional American folk song about railroad engineer Casey Jones includes new music and original words that tell of the fabled story. Rhythmic accompaniment, vocal speech, and the familiar melody of this favorite tune combine to create a fun selection for your young singers.
