Choral Choir (TTBB) - Level 3 - Digital Download
By James Newton Howard. By Jeremiah Fraites, Suzanne Collins, and Wesley Schultz. Arranged by Mark R. Lewis. Contemporary. Octavo. 8 pages. Mark R Lewis #6605415. Published by Mark R Lewis (A0.1001564).
The text for "The Hanging Tree" comes from Suzanne Collins' 2010 book Mockingjay, the final book in her Hunger Games trilogy. The tune was written for the 2014 movie adaptation of the book by James Newton Howard, Jeremy Fraites, and Wesley Schultz and is written in the style of a folk song. The movie version was performed by Jennifer Lawrence in her role as Katniss Everdeen.
This particular arrangement is designed for a Choral Trio with no voice ranges specified. The range should be sing-able by almost all singers regardless of which line they are singing. That said, SAA, SAB, or TBB will probably sound best. There are clefs written but they are for ease of reading and are not intended to be prescriptive for the performers. While the melody itself is not difficult, the staggered entrances do provide a bit of a challenge but it should still be manageable by most intermediate singers.
