ASH GROVE - This beloved Welsh Folk Song is perfect for any occasion and has been set to countless lyrics. Also known as, Llwyn Onn, it tells of a sailor's love for "Gwen of Llwyn".
BE THOU MY VISION is a traditional Irish Hymn that has been passed down since the sixth century. This beloved melody was featured in the 1945 movie
THE BELLS of ST. MARY'S, sung by the incomparable Bing Crosby. It has since been recorded by artists such as The Drifters (1954), Andy Williams (1965), Aaron Neville (1993) and Sheryl Crow (2008).
BROTHER JAMES' AIR is a beautiful setting of a familiar Scottish hymn tune. Written by James Leith MacBeth Bain, or ‘Brother James,’ as an accompaniment for the 23rd Psalm (The Lord is My Shepherd), it was first printed in London in 1915. Originally titled Marosa to honor the seventh daughter of a friend whom he had christened, the melody eventually came to be known by its present name.
CHARLESTON - Revel in the Roaring 20's with our rollicking rendition of the Charleston! The dance craze called The Charleston swept the world in 1923 with its captivating dance steps and syncopated rhythms. Toes in, Heels out, and DANCE!
FASCINATING RHYTHM - This Gershwin favorite was first introduced in Lady Be Good, starring Fred and Adele Astaire. It has been recorded and performed by greats such as Ella Fitzgerald, Tony Bennett, Tommy Dorsey, Michael Feinstein and more!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY Perform this masterful medley/mash-up for Quartet that features Happy Birthday as the main theme, along with For He's a Jolly Good Fellow and a playful dash of The Old Gray Mare as well.
IN THE GARDEN (I Come to the Garden Alone) This lovely setting of In the Garden for chamber ensemble is the perfect addition to any inspirational moment. Written by C. Austin Miles in 1912, In the Garden has been recorded by musical legends including Elvis Presley, Loretta Lynn, Dionne Warwick, Amy Grant and was sung in the closing scene of the movie Places of the Heart.
IT HAD TO BE YOU is the iconic romantic song, and also the title song to the film When Harry Met Sally. It has been recorded by Barbara Streisand, Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra and more!
JUST A CLOSER WALK WITH THEE is a traditional gospel song which has been performed and recorded by literally hundreds of artists. The title and lyrics of the song allude to the Biblical passage from 2 Corinthians 5:7 which states, "We walk by faith, not by sight" and James 4:8, "Come near to God and He will come near to you."
LARGO al FACTOTUM (Make way for the factotum!) is an aria from Rossini’s The Barber of Seville, sung at the initial entrance of the title character. Who doesn’t know this awesomely hummable song? Even Rossini would probably find it amusing that his aria has become even more famous due to the Bugs Bunny cartoon, “The Rabbit of Seville”. And we’d totally go into lavish detail to define the history and meaning of the term "factotum", but we took a vote, and unfortunately, That’s All, Folks!
LOCH LOMOND (short for The Bonnie Banks o' Loch Lomond) is a gorgeous traditional Scottish melody that tells of Loch Lomond, the largest loch in Scotland. It has been recorded countless times including the rendition by the Scottish Celtic rock band Runrig.
THE MAN I LOVE is another Gershwin standout, from the musical Strike Up the Band. It is one of the most famous Broadway standards, recently included in the 2015 Broadway musical, An American in Paris.
O MIO BABBINO CARO ("Oh my dear daddy") is one of Puccini’s best-loved arias. Lauretta sings ‘O mio babbino caro’ to persuade her father Gianni Schicchi to help her and her boyfriend Rinuccio Donati. It is an interlude expressing lyrical simplicity and love in contrast with the atmosphere of hypocrisy, jealousy, double-dealing, and feuding in medieval Florence.
Our RHAPSODY IN BLUE is a stunning arrangement-suite of George Gershwin’s signature work for solo piano and jazz band. It premiered in 1924 at An Experiment in Modern Music at Aeolian Hall in New York City, with Paul Whiteman and his band backing up Gershwin himself on the piano.
TEA for TWO from No, No, Nanette - This uplifting song from 1924 was Vincent Youmans' biggest hit and has been recorded by Tommy Dorsey, Doris Day, Art Tatum, Bing Crosby and many more!
WHAT A FRIEND WE HAVE IN JESUS is a beloved Christian hymn originally written by Joseph Scriven as a poem in 1855 to comfort his mother who was living in Ireland while he was in Canada. The tune to the hymn was composed by Charles Crozat Converse in 1868 and has since become one of the most popular church hymns worldwide.
YES! WE HAVE NO BANANAS - This fabulous hit song by Silver & Cohn from 1923 has been re-recorded by Benny Goodman and His Orchestra, Spike Jones & His City Slickers, Kidsongs, and many more.
