    This is a lovely arrangement of Summertime and does the song justice. Be prepared for a challenge, as it is not a straightforward piece (we are talking Gershwin, after all). A little bit of work will see you well rewarded, as it really is a joy to sing...I am...

    having a ball with it!

    This is a great arrangement of Summertime, although quite a challenge for amateur choirs.

  • July 22, 2011 one great piece

    I chose this as the finale of my choir's summer concert. It is a fine piece, but not for the faint-of-heart. It is rhythmically complicated, and requires some sophisticated knowledge on the part of your choir members. Otherwise, it is well worth it!

    Great arrangement for SATB. Not too taxing on voices. Looking forward to my choir's (Austrian Australian Choir Canberra) performance of it soon.
