Eleanor Rigby by Lennon & McCartney. Arranged by Yumiko Matsuoka. For jazz choir (SAATBB choir, a cappella). Level 3. Set of 16 octavos. Published by UNC Jazz Press (NC.VJ2012).
This Lennon-McCartney classic retains some of the flavor of the original Beatles' arrangement intact by giving the background vocals a string-like texture in the opening section. It then goes through a couple of key changes and gives different parts an opportunity to sing the melody while the background supports with strong harmony and interesting counterlines. SAATBB a cappella. Recorded on To Every Thing There Is A Season, Yumiko's anthology album.
