The Songs of Richard Rodgers - High Voice (High Voice). For Vocal. Vocal Collection. 216 pages. Published by Hal Leonard (HL.740166).
ISBN 0634032461. 9x12 inches.
The most accomplished composer in the history of the American musical theatre was Richard Rodgers (1902-1979), with a professional career on Broadway that spanned more than 50 years. In an edition designed especially for singers, 45 songs have been carefully chosen from both the Rodgers & Hart and Rodgers & Hammerstein output. The accompaniments support the singer, rather than containing the melody in the piano part throughout, as in the standard sheet music editions of these songs. Most of these songs are transposed for the first time ever in this new collection. The song selection is almost the same for High Voice and Low Voice; (“Soliloquy” from Carousel only appears in in Low Voice, and “My Lord and Master” from The King and I only appears in in High Voice). Highlights: Bewitched • Do I Love You Because You're Beautiful? • Falling in Love with Love • I Have Dreamed • If I Loved You • Isn't It Romantic? • It Might as Well Be Spring • My Favorite Things • My Funny Valentine • Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin' • Some Enchanted Evening • Something Wonderful • Ten Cents a Dance • Thou Swell • To Keep My Love Alive • Where or When • You'll Never Walk Alone.
