Pop Music for Spring for Women’s & Men’s Choirs Monday, January 28, 2013

Stanton’s Sheet Music suggests that you make your students the stars this spring with some of these great popular music choices for women’s and men’s choirs.  Whether you’re looking for current pop, an inspirational ballad or a Broadway showstopper, we’ll help you find the perfect choice for your ensemble!

The English singer/songwriter Adele’s second album, “21,” has enjoyed enormous critical acclaim, with reviewers lauding her multi-Grammy-winning vocal performance and introspective songwriting. Four smash hits are included in the ten-minute medley Adele: Songs from the Album 21, including: “Rolling In the Deep;” “Rumour Has It;” “Set Fire to the Rain” and “Someone Like You.”  A great feature for treble ensembles!

From Season 3 of “Glee,” the soulful cover of the hit song Shake It Out by Florence + the Machine provided a dramatic and inspirational moment for the girls of New Directions. Simple acoustic accompaniment and expressive vocal harmonies make this setting a super choice for women’s ensembles!

Celebrate 50 years of James Bond 007 – and the release of the movie “Skyfall” – with the fabulously recognizable James Bond Theme, originally premiered in the film “Dr. No.” Men’s choirs can now enjoy these exciting rhythms, marvelous melodies, and snazzy harmonies!

The layered wordless accompaniment provides a steady and soulful underlay for the sweet pop melody and lyrics of the Bruno Mars chart-topper Just the Way You Are. Perfect for Valentine’s Day, Prom, Spring Concert or any romantic occasion!
