True Colours – Sheet Music (Craig McLeish)View Craig McLeish's Full Store
A hugely popular song arranged for 5 part a cappella. The format keeps fairly close to the Cyndi Lauper original, although the tune is shared between Alto (verse) and Soprano (chorus). This is definitely an intermediate level song due to the second verse having its own arrangement.
When singing “do” as an accompaniment make sure the tongue is pushed back up the rook of the mouth and not at the front – This achieves a lovely soft effect similar to the way the Swingles do it.
5 voice arrangement. It looks complex at first but it is very do-able actually! Structure is clear and voices follow naturally. Very nice rich voicings
Although we are having few zoom meetings at present, we have chosen True Colours as one of the pieces to concentrate on. The five part arrangement suits our group and the message of the song is particularly valuable. The learning tracks are very helpful as we try to learn the song in case of a recording for a virtual 'concert'. We really enjoy singing Craig's arrangement.
