Delight your audience at your Renaissance Era performance with Stasera Dorme Il Leone, which translates to The Lion Sleeps Tonight. This score can be used by any 4-part ensemble. The .mp3 sample file was created from the end of this arrangement, and what you hear is after The Lion Sleeps Tonight theme has emerged from the African/Renaissance mishmash sounding Uim-bu-be introductory theme that follows the Tokens' chord structure and delightfully morphs into the familiar song. The mp3 sounds like an ensemble of 4 recorders, but play any melody instruments you like. Lyrics in Italian and English are included, for 4 part accapella singing, if that's your preference. Have a listen to the .mp3 sample and you will hear the arranger's delightful translation from Italian Renaissance to the pop music jungle! It's not difficult to play and fun! This number is a real sleeper (pun intended) with the theme emerging gradually and your audience will swing along gleefully. Wake up your audience with Tom Aufrance's arrangement of The Lion Sleeps Tonight! (A Glowing Review: "Well Done!" -- Ron Daniels, Conductor of Reno Philharmonic).
