One of the most iconic movie songs of all time, Over The Rainbow is a must have arrangement if you are a vocalist. The tough part of arranging this number was that there are so many good arrangements out there already! Instead of reinventing the wheel, I decided to do a little mashup and bring together so many different aspects of all the great recordings of this timeless tune. So keep an ear out for Judy Garland, Frank Sinatra and your favourite version, they’re all in here in some shape or form. Special thanks to The Idea of North, as their intro is my favourite and I just had to borrow it!
Originally written for Tredegar Town Band and vocalist Siwan Henderson, this arrangement is at an intermediate level due to some extreme chromaticism and melodic lines that require a skillful accompanist, although the vocal part is simple to allow for any ad libs and should be comfortable for all voice types.
