Beyond The Sea, Arrangement

By Charles Trenet and Jack Lawrence, arr. Kevin Weed. Originally called La Mer.

This energetic arrangement for Solo and SSAATB a capella choir was written for the Corona Del Mar High School Madrigal Singers.

This is a happy song. Smile and sing to the audience. Make the audience smile. The choir is a sort of Greek chorus, commenting on and reacting to the solo.

Can you find the Easter Eggs: quotes from Handel’s Water Music, Debussy’s La Mer, and others?

I think this arrangement really benefits from acting, looks, facial expressions, and movement.
