Scarborough Fair

By Traditional

https://www.sheetmusicplus.com/title/scarborough-fair-digital-sheet-music/20519498

Choir, SSAA, for women's barbershop or a cappella ensemble - Intermediate
Composed by Traditional. Arranged by Glenda Lloyd. Folk, Celtic. Sheet Music Single. 4 pages. Published by Lloydsong (S0.260315).

Item Number: S0.260315

For women's barbershop or a cappella ensemble 

This arrangement starts off simply in unison (or with a soloist), building to progressively more complex verses. It includes a counterpoint melody section, and some unique lyrics adapted from the even older Scottish ballad, The Elfin Knight.

This work was originally commissioned by Headliners Chorus from Ballina, NSW, Australia. It was the favourite song of one of their fans, Vietnam War veteran Trevor Bence. When he passed away, Trevor left a bequest in his will for this song to be arranged for Headliners Chorus, and in his memory his name, forces number and date of birth and death are included on the first page of the sheet music.

    As a member of the Headliners chorus who commissioned the arrangement it is just lovely to sing. The build in complexity and the counterpoint melody take the listener on an unexpected journey, for this well known song. And the baritones get the melody of the bass clef counter melody. Yippeeee...

    . I love the final verse where things get really interesting chord wise and I just love the phrase "love imposes impossible tasks" This song would bring diversity to your repertoire, as a 3/4 waltz time well constructed, haunting arrangement of a loved tune.
