From the classic musical Sweeney Todd, this piece has a timeless and simple melody that is shared between both the men’s and women’s parts. This text is one of the few “positive lights” from the show and easy for younger students to connect with. The part writing is clever enough that even beginning level choirs will be able to find success in this tune without having to resort to singing only simple haronies. There are some great 7th and 9th chords that are all approached with stepwise motion in all voices and very easy to tune and easy for your students to enjoy!
