Item Number: HL.35002415

Kirby Shaw's phenomenal arrangement of this Simon & Garfunkel hit ballad is contemporary choral writing at its finest! The light, harmonic a cappella opening is contrasted with this soaring fresh gospel-style setting that holds opportunities for improvisation from multiple soloists. This is an excellent choice for a pops concert or graduation. Available separately: SATB, SAB, TTBB, SSA, Show Band Orchestration, StudioTrax A/P CD.

    This is a beautiful song which gets lost in this arrangement. It's simply too different from the song we all know and love. The wonderful piano lines of the original are lost and there's just too much play. However, at least it's transposed to a key that...

    most people can sing.
