Blue Moon – Sheet MusicView Keely Hodgson's Full Store
I wrote this 3-part arrangement of the classic Rodgers and Hart song from 1934 for a small group of singers who were beginning to enjoy performing together. While soprano 1 has the tune at the start, the other 2 parts have plenty of opportunity to shine with expressive, lilting phrases that echo the tune. There is lots of dynamic contrast, and opportunity for expressive singing. The two lower parts divide in the closing bars to give a delicious final chord.
I purchased this arrangement for use with a non audition ladies acapella group. We all like it very much – it is fairly straight forward but enjoyable to sing. The only reservation I have is that it is very short and ends quite abruptly. To address this I have added a repeat in bar 25 back to the beginning and we sing it all again. I have also changed a note in bar 22 – S1 the semiquaver on the syllable ‘per’. I have changed it from A to B as this feels like a better fit.
A really attractive arrangement – I will certainly buy more by Keely.
