Danny Boy arranged by Jameson Marvin. For Choral (TTBB A Cappella). Mark Foster. A Cappella, Folk Songs, General Repertory, Secular. 8 pages. Shawnee Press #MF1503. Published by Shawnee Press (HL.35005085).
Arranged for the Harvard Glee Club, the beautiful “Danny Boy” is harmonized in a highly compelling manner. Several verses include exquisite polyphonic writing for TTBB choir, which suddenly resolve into a floating, almost ethereal unison. The tenor solo is not at all difficult. “Danny Boy” is probably one of the most famous and well-loved melodies of all time. It is a wonderful concert piece, challenging and most rewarding.
