Old Friends

Music by Paul Simon

Originally Performed by Simon & Garfunkel

The simple melody and haunting lyric to Paul Simon's Old Friends, recorded by Simon and Art Garfunkel on their Bookends LP, is presented in this contemporary harmonic framework for a cappella four-part vocal ensemble. Simon's asymmetrical phrase lengths and poetic pauses are thoughtfully treated in a rubato setting that conductors and singers will find naturally fluid and elastic. Concert choirs, vocal chamber ensembles and vocal jazz ensembles at both the high school and university levels have found this brief (2:30) and colorful rendition to be a refreshing addition to concert and festival performances.

Various Arrangers : Simon and Garfunkel A Cappella

Paul Simon is certainly one of the greatest songwriters of the modern popular song and here are some classics that are sure to please. "Baby Driver" - Sheer, unbridled fun! For college or adult jazz chorus, this arrangement as sung by the New York Voices is a bit tricky, but well worth the effort. It features incredible harmony and rhythm and some a cappella sections, but the purpose of this piece is not to get technical-just to have fun! Four-part scat singing frames the piece on either end, while your baritone soloist goes to town (with great choral support) on each verse. Baby Driver, extracted from the New York Voices Songs of Paul Simon CD, is a toe-tappin', hand-clappin' jazz party. Invite everyone you know! "Bridge Over Troubled Water" - The true beauty of the powerful lyrics in this Simon & Garfunkel hit from 1970 comes shining through in this accessible and well-crafted a cappella setting. From the simple and intimate opening to the full-voiced conclusion, your singers and audiences will enjoy an emotional concert experience! "The Sound of Silence" - The excitement for a brand new Pentatonix arrangement of a beloved pop or rock tune has become something of an achievement in an of itself. This time, Simon & Garfunkel's chart topper from '65 gets a fully vocal musical tribute. "Old Friends" - The New York Voices hit a home run with their beautiful and poignant rendition of this song. Fred Sturm has taken that arrangement and made it appropriate for concert choir.

Songlist: Baby Driver, Bridge Over Troubled Water, The Sound of Silence, Old Friends
