The Ballad of Sweeney Todd by Stephen Sondheim (1930-). Arranged by Andy Beck. For Choral (ShowTrax CD). Broadway Choral. CD only. Hal Leonard #28628. Published by Hal Leonard (HL.8621786).
A percussive piano theme underscores this haunting opening number from what many consider to be Sondheim's greatest musical score. An ominous chorus invites listeners to “attend the tale of Sweeney Todd” as they sing the textured lines and ear-gripping sonorities of this theatrical classic. A spine-tingling, blood-curdling thriller for mixed choirs! Available separately: SATB, SAB, Instrumental score and parts (fl 1-2, cl [ob], bcl, tpt 1-2, tbn [hn], btbn [tba], pno, b, syn, perc 1-2), ShowTrax CD.
