    I am a professional singer and teacher at an arts college in Seattle. I am now teaching the chorus - which is an ensemble open to all singers, musicians and students of other majors - an unauditioned choir. I always appreciate The Kings' Singers arrangements...they are musical, provide a great challenge...

    and are satisfying to sing. This song is a good start for a chorus made up of some voice majors and other students with less vocal experience...the melody is well-known, the harmony parts aren't difficult and the solos give additional opportunities for more accomplished singers. And the arrangement - where it looks like 6-part singing, is actually only 3-part singing - this is perfect for my group. The students enjoy this piece and I look forward to working on more Kings' Singers arrangements in the future.

  • September 25, 2008 Very nice harmonies and sound

    This piece is great. It has a nice light but mysterious quality. Fun to sing and fairly easy. Can get it together pretty quick. Can't wait to perfrom it.

    Very enjoyable to sing and great harmonies. I love the poise created by finishing with the solo voice.

  • May 01, 2007 beautiful

    As usual, beautiful harmonies... enough complexity to keep a group challeneged and interested. We actually worked it into a four part women's piece and loved what we ended up with.
