This TTBB a cappella arrangement is in the barbershop, close harmony style. It was originally written in the age of the Tin Pan Alley of New York City, and has been a favorite of millions over many decades. It's a heartfelt wish and plea to live long and never grow old along with your partner.This new arrangement will delight your singers and audiences alike. This may be sung by a quartet, octet/small ensemble or chorus, and would be considered of medium to medium-high difficulty. The song's duration is only 2:58, sung in a ballad format. Try performing it in a straight tone, with vibrato used sparingly or not at all. For a teaching opportunity, concentrate on dynamics where appropriate to the lyrics, and also (sometimes overlapping) breath control.Tags: If I Had My Way, TTBB, a cappella, barbershop, close harmony, ballad, quartet, octet, chorus, small ensemble, Donald A.
