5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic arrangements / Great music.
This has some fantastic arrangements for four-part choir, and can be easily adapted for barbershop groups etc. Although the 'blue' harmonies are challenging the pieces chosen are a good selection of slow and slushy through to up-tempo jazz. There is a nice mix of a cappella and accompanied stuff. This is well worthwhile for any choir, as long as they can read music -...

3.0 out of 5 stars Looks good
This review is premature, because I have not yet got my group of singers together to try the arrangements. But, although the numbers should be great fun, the arrangements are not what I was looking for. This is because the information about them was not complete. I was looking for four-part arrangements, and the information said SATB. Most of these are for many more...

This review is from: In the Mood: 17 choral arrangements of classic popular songs (Paperback)
This has some fantastic arrangements for four-part choir, and can be easily adapted for barbershop groups etc. Although the 'blue' harmonies are challenging the pieces chosen are a good selection of slow and slushy through to up-tempo jazz. There is a nice mix of a cappella and accompanied stuff. This is well worthwhile for any choir, as long as they can read music - it's not really designed to be tackled 'by ear'.

5.0 out of 5 stars I knew what I wanted when I bought it, 4 April 2013

This review is from: In the Mood: 17 choral arrangements of classic popular songs (Paperback)
I have used this book for a choir and an octet that I sign with and it is packed with lovely music well arranged. Some of the arrangements are quite challenging, but a great collection nonetheless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely 4-part arrangements of some classic songs, 8 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: In the Mood: 17 choral arrangements of classic popular songs (Paperback)
Am really pleased with this purchase. The 8-voice group I sing with has taken a number of songs from it to sing in concerts. Particularly like 'Night and Day', 'Autumn Leaves', and 'Tea for Two'. Rich arrangements, a bit tricky in places so nice and challenging.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great arrangements: works with big or small choirs, 30 Jun 2011
This review is from: In the Mood: 17 choral arrangements of classic popular songs (Paperback)
17 fine arrangements of "classic popular songs". I've just sung a selection with a large choir of 100 voices - Over the rainbow, Let's do it, I got rhythm - and some with a quartet - 'S Wonderful for example. All are well arranged, and certainly audience pleasers.

This review is premature, because I have not yet got my group of singers together to try the arrangements. But, although the numbers should be great fun, the arrangements are not what I was looking for. This is because the information about them was not complete. I was looking for four-part arrangements, and the information said SATB. Most of these are for many more parts than four, so that my small group of singers will not be able to sing them. Some are accessible, and I look forward to trying them

5.0 out of 5 stars Fab music!, 20 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: In the Mood: 17 choral arrangements of classic popular songs (Paperback)
This is a great selection of lovely music. The pieces are relatively demanding music to learn, for somebody with a church choral type background, but this adds to the pleasure. The end results are great, and they are great fun to sing.

These arrangements are so lovely we really enjoy singing them. The book contains titles such as Blue Moon, Over the Rainbow, Night and Day, Tea for Two etc. Great collection and would recommend for mixed voiced group.
