"The Baker's Wife" isn't one of Stephen Schwartz's most well-known musicals, especially compared to smash hits like "Wicked" and "Godspell," but it has still established a cult following - mainly for its incredible songwriting! "Serenade" is full of soaring melodies, gorgeous and sometimes unexpected harmonies, and lush countermelodic layers, all set against a subtle but driving background of guitar arpeggios. I created this arrangement for five cellos after playing in the pit orchestra for a production of the show - even after the curtain, I couldn't get this song out of my head. Rated advanced for some treble clef and stuff high up on the fingerboard every once in a while.

Do you want to actually hear peoples' arrangements - and make sure you like them - before you spend your hard-earned cash on them? Of course! Videos of many Cellobat Charts arrangements are available on YouTube so you know exactly what you're getting. Stop buying untested charts that might end up sounding weird and making your group look bad on the gig! Copy & paste this link for full video of "Serenade" -
