Don’t You Worry ‘Bout A Thing by Stevie Wonder

Difficulty: 5/5

Inspired by Stevie Wonder’s original, this highly chromatic and syncopated song is complex and well arranged for slightly smaller groups of skilled singers.  Descant parts at the end makes this perfect for an octet.

A silly take on an old favorite, with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle theme thrown in for fun.

TTBB
Eli’s Coming by Laura Nyro TTBB

TTBB
Hide and Seek by Imogen Heap

Difficulty: 5/5

Our most popular arrangement, made of very difficult sustained tone clusters and chromatic harmonies.  Ability to perform challenging rhythms and vocal dexterity is a must, as well as solid descant soloists.  Best in a group over 12 due to extensive splitting of the parts.  The work put into rehearsing and performing this chart is well-rewarded with a beautiful, subtle, powerful, and touching result.  Highly recommended.

High and Dry by Radiohead

Difficulty: 2/5

Many repeats in a tastefully scored block, letting a harmonic ostinato continue to build.  Great to showcase a soloist.

Difficulty: 4/5

Best for a small group; tight jazz harmonies, and a scat solo section.

Mala Gente by Juanes

Difficulty: 3/5

Won Best Arrangement at ICCAs 2005: this chart is not to be missed!  Very fun to sing, intuitive and easy to learn, it brings out the best in every singer.  Be careful on the subdivision of the 16th notes and your group will be golden.  Room for a scat solo or two and a flamenco hand-clap breakdown.  LOTS of energy!

One by Three Dog Night / Aimee Mann TTBB
Ren & Stimpy Theme (Dog Pound Hop by Joe Pass) TTBB
September by Earth, Wind, and Fire

Difficulty: 4/5

Short People by Randy Newman TTBB
The Sound of Silence by Simon and Garfunkel TTBB
Spit On A Stranger by Nickel Creek (Pavement) TTBB Free!
Such Great Heights by Postal Service

Difficulty: 5/5

Very strong arrangement!  Very challenging opening rhythmic section (with the possibility of simplification), four-voice hocket over a bassline.  Many different divisions of parts to round out the sound, with multiple individuals on their own parts.  Takes two soloists with similar voices.
