Beatles for Choir SATB
This is a very popular Beatles medley for mixed voice choirs by Alan Simmons.The Beatles are the best known group in the world. So if your choir are looking for a medley that your choir and audience will all enjoy, this is perfect. Combining the Beatles classics of Ob-la-di Ob-la-da, And I Love Her & Penny Lane, the rhythms in this SATB arrangement are as near to The Beatles originals as possible. There are dynamics on the music, but listen to The Beatles original recordings for the authentic rhythms. These are three very contrasting songs. Ob-la-di Ob-la-da, is calypso style, and gets the medley started with a bang. We then move on to And I Love Her, which is a more reflective and contemplative piece. Finally, we end with Penny Lane (widely regarded by many as the best Beatles song ever). Brilliant changes of key come at the right time to lift the atmosphere.
