Choral (SSAA)
From Porgy and Bess. Composed by Dorothy Heyward, Du Bose Heyward, George Gershwin (1898-1937), and Ira Gershwin. Arranged by Mac Huff. Broadway Choral. 12 pages. Published by Hal Leonard (HL.139649).

Item Number: HL.139649

6.75x10.5 inches.

One of the most treasured songs of all time, Gershwin's highly evocative writing mixes elements of jazz with artsong to create a masterwork of the 20th century. This tasteful choral setting weaves the melody through different voices with wordless choral textures, forming a rich backdrop of sound. Starting rubato, a full dynamic range and a dramatic piano accompaniment add to the emotion.
