Skye Boat Song

Traditional Scottish Folk Song, Lyrics by Robert Louis Stevenson

"The Skye Boat Song" is a late 19th-century Scottish song recalling the journey of Prince Charles Edward Stuart (Bonnie Prince Charlie) from Benbecula to the Isle of Skye as he evaded capture by government troops after his defeat at the Battle of Culloden in 1746. Sir Harold Boulton, 2nd Baronet composed the lyrics to an air collected by Anne Campbelle MacLeod in the 1870s, and the line "Over the Sea to Skye" is now a cornerstone of the tourism industry on the Isle of Skye. Alternative lyrics to the tune were written by Robert Louis Stevenson, probably in 1885. After hearing the Jacobite airs sung by a visitor, he judged the words of this song to be "unworthy", so made a new set of verses "more in harmony with the plaintive tune". It is often played as a slow lullaby or waltz, and entered into the modern folk canon in the twentieth century with versions by Paul Robeson, Tom Jones, Rod Stewart, Roger Whittaker, Tori Amos, and many others.

Various Arrangers : Vocal Jazz for Womens Voices : SSAA : Sheet Music

Various Arrangers : Vocal Jazz for Womens Voices

A great collection of vocal jazz arrangements by some of the best arrangers in the genre. Bette Midler's sass is captured in this fast, furious and fun arrangement by Deke Sharon of Cole Porter's Miss Otis Regrets. Andrew Sisters-esque 3 part melody above a walking bass line punctuated by brassy horn (vocal) passages. A great "Story Song", works well as a closer or encore. The Thelonius Monk ballad "Round Midnight" most recently featured in the movie of the same name. This arrangement starts with "wind" sounds, a rubato intertwing introduction, then spotlights tense cluster voicings supporting a female soloist throughout. With imaginative reharmonizations, yet good voice leading, this chart is extremely effective and accessible. "For All We Know" - A lush four-voice a cappella ballad for soprano soloist. The inclusion of the verse at the end is inspired by Mark Murphy's rendition. Commissioned by the New York-based chorus Women Singing, the Scottish folk song "The Skye Boat Song" is written to evoke images of the stark beauty of the Highlands. The melody that tells the legend of Bonnie Prince Charlie is supported by water ripples and wind that the background voices weave together. In the middle section, the story is told by a narrator. Take a journey through the poetic landscape with rich harmony and soaring lines.

Songlist: Skye Boat Song, For All We Know, Round Midnight, Miss Otis Regrets

Various Arrangers : Men's Folk Songs : TTBB : Sheet Music

Various Arrangers : Men's Folk Songs

Written for the Harvard Glee Club, this arrangement of 'Skye Boat Song' is men's choral singing at its best! Jameson Marvin sets this beautiful Scottish folksong combining both the jauntiness of a sailor's air and the sensitivity of a lullaby. From the Mark Foster catalog, 'What Wondrous Love Is This' is another well-loved folk hymn arrangement from J. Harold Moyer. Written for the Kansas Mennonite Men's Chorus, Moyer has taken a beautiful folk hymn and crafted it into an exquisite choral anthem. Using the modal folk melody, he has embellished the harmony with broad, open chords and scalar movement, giving the piece a chant-like quality. The a cappella arrangement of 'Home on the Range' bursts with colorful harmonies and textures which expertly interpret the text. Described by some as a "perfect melody," this American standard gives your ensemble a chance to show off their impeccable tuning and blending abilities for concert, contest, or festival. Features unison phrases, brief solo sections, and lush, unexpected harmonies. A traditional Irish folksong, 'The Minstrel Boy,' is a fun and exciting four part men's arrangement. The baritone solo in the middle of the piece is definitely noteworthy! 'Tenting On the Old Campground' is known as the most popular 'melancholy song' of the Cival War. It was written in 1862 by a concert ballad singer from New Hampshire wh was deferred from army service because of 'feebleness of constitution.' But he did sing it for Union troops in the field. The song appealed to soldiers on both sides of the conflict. This would be a great addition to your concert! 'Let's Drink!' is a fun three part men's piece that can be sung during your concert or even at the after-party!

Songlist: Home On The Range, Let's Drink, Minstrel Boy, Skye Boat Song, Tenting on the Old Campground, What Wondrous Love Is This?

BBC Singers : Choral Images - Sir Michael Tippett

When Sir Michael Tippett first worked with the BBC Singers in 1944, the experience was such that he recalled nearly 50 years later that "It was to be the first of many such occasions when a composer's dreams were brought to fulfillment." Tippett's relationship with the BBC Singers went back to almost the beginning of his career, and he often expressed intense admiration for them. His faith is rewarded here. Now under the Conductor Laureate, Stephen Cleobury, the present-day BBC Singers return the compliment with this program of his works for choir, both unaccompanied and with organ. The plaintive high solo of the Nunc Dimittis, floating above strange middle-range harmonies, soars worlds away from cosy Anglican convention. The 'sprung' rhythms of Dance Clarion Air and The Windhover have a muscular freedom unlike anything in contemporary English music. The strangely irregular figures Tipett waves around the tune in Over the Sea to Skye may seem over-ingenious at first, but by the end their quite hypnotic, at the same time challenging the ear to re-examine a very familiar melody.

Songlist: Dance, Clarion Air, Plebs Angelica, Magnificat, Nunc Dimittis, Unto The Hills, England: Early One Morning, Ireland: Lilliburlero, Scotland: Poortith Cauld, Wales: Gwenlian, Skye Boat Song, The Source, The Windhover, Lullaby, Steal Away, Nobody Knows, Go Down Moses, By and by, Deep River

"Moves" is the second CD by 1999-2000 champion British Barbershop chorus CCC, and it gets off on the right foot with a hilarious "Mother-In-Law Medley" that puts new words and meanings to "Yes Sir, That's My Baby," "Our Love Is Here to Stay" and "Hello Mother, Hello Father." 13 winning tunes follow, some favorites: the classic "Blue Velvet," "Just A Cottage Small," "Here's That Rainy Day," "Sunday Medley," "All the Things You Are," "Blue Shadows on the Trail," the folk hit "Today" (While the Blossoms Still Cling to the Vine), "I Wish You Love," the Motown hit "My Girl," and "Last Laugh Medley." We like to think of CCC as the "Little David" chorus, 40 guys outsinging choruses 2 or 3 times their size. "Moves" is great entertainment by a very special Barbershop chorus from Britain!

Harvard Glee Club : Long Way From Home

The 60-voice Harvard Glee Club, Harvard's internationally renowned men's chorus, is the oldest college chorus in America, founded by students in 1858 to sing college songs and glees. It took until 1912, under the dynamic direction of Dr. Archibald T. Davison, that the Glee Club developed a repertoire of distinction and gained a national reputation. Drawing its repertoire from six centuries, the Glee Club has proved itself particularly expert in the performance of contemporary American music, sacred repertory of the Renaissance, Eastern European music and Folk songs of the world. Under the direction of Jameson Marvin since 1978, the HGC has enhanced its reputation as one of America premier collegiate choruses. "Long Way From Home" is a rich collection of 27 tunes, many of them, like "The Minstrel Boy," "Danny Boy," "Skye Boat Song," "K'ang Ting Love Song" and "Barb'ra Allen," beautifully arranged by conductor Marvin, and several others, like "The Foggy Dew," "Glorious Apollo" and "Sacramento," arranged by Archibald Davison. Other favorites are Franz Schubert's "Widerspruch" and "La Pastorella, the Georgian Folk song "Voi Di Vo," the traditional song "Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child," "Lowlands" (arranged by Alice Parker and Robert Shaw; and several written by Harvard men, Richmond K. Fletcher's "Yo Ho" and "The Grid Iron King & Soldiers Field," R.G. Williams' "Up the Street" and "Harvardiana," Murray Taylor's "Ten Thousand Men of Harvard" and "Fair Harvard," a traditional Irish Air based on a poem by Samuel Gilman, 1811. Every cut here has the wonderful beauty and gravitas we've come to expect and enjoy from this venerable, powerful men's chorus!

King's Singers : Annie Laurie: Folksongs of the British Isles

Sparingly accompanied by Renaissance flute, piccolo and a guitar, these traditionals, and the descriptions that accompany them, are a charming introduction to the musical history of Britain. The famous "Danny Boy," (a cappella) somehow manages to summarize the grace and suffering of the Irish experience in its earnest melody; likewise, "Loch Lomond," (Scottish, also a cappella) brings the rough yet delicate beauty of Scotland to life. Several nineteenth century parlor songs are also included, such as "Home Sweet Home" and "Golden Slumbers." Also, the familiar "Scarborough Fair," "Greensleeves" and "What Shall We Do With A Drunken Sailor?"

Skye Boat Song : SATB : Darmon Meader :  1 CD : CM9410

Darmon Meader : Skye Boat Song

Originally commissioned for several combined choirs, this arrangement is a modern interpretation of the classic Scottish folk song with Darmon Meader's updated harmonic and rhythmic sensibilities. Though treated with a more modern approach, a traditional choir will find this piece to be very approachable as they explore the more intricate, lush harmonies for which Darmon has become well-known contest and festival approved!

Skye Boat Song : SA : Lee Kesselman : Sheet Music : 48004960 : 073999458152

Lee Kesselman : Skye Boat Song

The Isle of Skye, off the northwest coast of Scotland, was home to Flora MacDonald, made famous by aiding the escape of Bonnie Prince Charlie following his defeat at the Battle of Culloden in 1746. The Skye Boat Song is not only a narrative. It is also a tribute to the Romantic history of Scotland and one of its great heroines and a nostalgic reminder of the greatness of the Scottish way of life and its traditions.

Skye Boat Song : SAB : Alexander L'Estrange : Sheet Music : 12-0571538126 : 9780571538126

Alexander L'Estrange : Skye Boat Song

The Skye Boat Song is perhaps one of the best-known Scottish melodies of all. It refers to the story of Bonnie Prince Charlie who, still only a boy, was smuggled out of Scotland to France after the Scots' defeat by the English at the Battle of Culloden in 1745. Despite there being a huge reward on his head, not one of his faithful Highlanders would betray him to the "auld enemy": a girl named Flora MacDonald disguised him in her maid's clothes and helped to row him "over the sea to Skye." The words by Sir Harold Boulton date from the nineteenth century. 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.
