Every Time We Say Goodbye – TTBB
By Cole Porter this was introduced in 1944 in Billy Rose’s musical revue Seven Lively Arts. In the phrase “change from major to minor”, Porter begins with an Ab major chord and ends with an Ab minor one, matching the words and music. The song became a jazz standard in the late 1950s. This a cappella version has wonderful close harmonies that need to be spot on to work – but boy do they work. It’s a real pleasure to sing – your choir will agree!
