Dale MillerMy absolute favorite setting is the Lloyd Pfautsch arrangement he did for the Dallas Civic Chorus back in the 1960s. It is a crowd pleaser.

Jonathan TalbergI suggest Tim Sharp's new arrangement. We just read it at the California Summer Conference. It works for all groupings (SATB, SSA, TTB, BARBERSHOP, etc.). There's also instrumentation available. We're going to teach it to all our choirs at CSULB in the fall. Good luck!
