(click here for a lower voices version of this arrangement)

This beautiful and tender song was written by Kate Bush specifically for the film ‘She’s Having A Baby’. Bush puts herself in the shoes of a man waiting outside the delivery room as his wife gives birth. The song explores his vulnerability at this tense moment.

This arrangement plays with the form of the original song, whilst incorporating all the themes and hooks that we know from Bush’s version. It offers a variety of different textures throughout, handing the melody around and moving between a free chorale-like opening to a steady pulse for the bulk of the arrangement.

There is an additional descant soprano part on the top stave, which could be sung by a soloist or a small group. The key bars for this part are 12-15 & 26-28, where we hear the iconic opening motif. The other passages of the descant can be omitted as necessary depending on the ensemble’s skill level.

This was arranged especially for Chaps Choir’s 10 year celebration concert in 2023.
