From the first tender chords of the piano introduction, this arrangement of Pure Imagination magically draws the singer and listener into this simple and effective arrangement. The key of E-flat allows for several phrases that float into the C5 to F5 tessitura– a true sweet spot for the young singer. This 2-part arrangement provides manageable harmony for young choirs still new to part singing, but can easily be adapted to unison as needed. The well-crafted melody of this song naturally promotes lovely phrasing and movement of line. The text is very inviting and kid- friendly and provides a wonderful springboard for any choir to share conversation about having and achieving dreams while tapping into the world of imagination.
