Baroque Samba




Publisher: New York Voices
Year of Publication: 1990
Voicing: SSATB w/rhythm section
Duration: 3:45
Level: V

As recorded by New York Voices (“New York Voices” – 1989, GRP), this NYV original is a wordless piece incorporating both baroque and samba styles – thus the name. As with most of the NYV repertoire, this is a pretty challenging arrangement, incorporating close harmony and active syncopation. But if you have a solid rhythm section, and motivated singers, it’s a lot of fun.

Sop: G2 – C5
