2018_Spring

I have now included MuseScore (music notation and playback) files for some of the music in the "Practice Aids" links below - they are the "*.mscz" files.

To get the FREE software, go to MuseScore.org and then follow the "Download" link. I've also written a (very) brief tutorial to help with playback and navigation controls - MuseScore Notes. The complete user manual is here.

The musescore files might be very rough at times, but they should at least be enough to substitue for plunking on a piano. Of course, if anyone makes improvements, please let me know and we can update the files posted here.

The second performance link includes an introduction by Moses Hogan where he discusses how he constructed the arrangement. Note that in the actual performance, there are some changes to the score.

The first performance link is closest to the arrangement we are singing. The second performance link is from the King's Singers, for whom the arrangement was written. They do take some liberties, but is a significantly better performance.

There are two sets of MP3 files here. The practice clips as usual, but there are also pronunciation guides. On this one, I tried separating the "lead" voice into the right channel, with the piano balanced and the other voices on the left channel. With that separation, you should be able to use your balance controls to adjust the relative volume of the lead compared to the other parts. Let me know if that is useful.
The performance is very nice, but it a good bit slower than the practice clips (and both are well below the marked tempi).

For the 3-part divisi sections, unless it's obvious who should sing the middle note, I've included it in both of the other parts. Note that the Youtube link is from the Moses Hogan Choral.
It Don't Mean A Thing - Ellington,Mills,Huff Performance It Don't Mean A Thing - Ellington,Mills,Huff.pdf
The performance link includes a couple of solo instrumentals breaks, but otherwise is the same as our arrangement.

I'm working on the clips, but this will take awhile.

The two Performance links are actually from the same recording (the entire Misaa Bevis). Each link starts the recording at the appropriate point for that movement.
