A beautiful contemporary ballad setting of the standard from the Great American Songbook. Modal reharmonization and a syncopated pulse place the ensemble in a thoughtful space, and a soprano or alto soloist as well as an optional guitar soloist are featured momentarily. No divisi in the ensemble writing, which makes the part-learning more straight-forward than usual, and the voice-leading is carefully treated throughout.
Fully Notated Piano and Bass Parts, Drums. Full score included
