Laughter

Date: Sun, 29 Dec 1996 18:13:30 -0500
From: SING4SCAM(a)aol.com
Subject: Re: compilation: "Laughable" songs

At the request of several listers I offer this compilation of songs
dealing
with the subject of laughter. More often than not publishers were not
included.
Some people suggested that unique presentations of standard repertoire
could
evolk the "humor" response. Several also suggested myriad madrigals,
catches, and glees too numerous to list, but certainly appropriate.
I have been promised lengthy additions to this list and will offer a
second
compilation at a later date if appropriate.
I apologize for accidentally not including my name on the original
request.

Hi - where can I get more info on the following and can I place a single order through ChoralNet or go to each publisher separately or say JW Pepper?

Duet for Two Cats - Rossini - SA
Polly Wolly Doodle - arr. Kubik
Stomp Your Foot - Copland
Banquet Fugue-Rutter-Hinshaw
A Little Nonsense-R. Starer-MCA Music
Neighbor's Chorus - Offenbach-Broude

I just need to review the music to select a couple of pieces.

Thanks,

Irene

Irene, we don't sell any music on ChoralNet itself but you should be able to order these from Pepper. Our preference is for SheetMusicPlus (link at the top of this page), but they often only sell 6-packs, not single copies. Most of the pieces you mention are well-known and widely available.

"How to be Happy" has been set for SATB chorus with piano accompaniment plus an added tambourine part by C. Jason Bechtold. Key of Bb/C major with a quick, happy tempo in 4/4 meter. Sopranos have a few G's and one A...rest of the ranges are moderate. Clever text. $1.60 per octavo.

Please order through www.reallygoodmusic.com
