Thread Name: Help: Trads to recommend for singer?
Subject: RE: Help: Trads to recommend for singer?
Crowhugger, this is GREAT ! If you mean that tuning ADGC (for me, La Re Sol Do) would make things easier or better for harmonization with tenor voice, ok, you decide. I'll now look for the sheet music or MIDI (there are tons) of Greensleeves and choose how many verses to sing. I've never sang this beautiful song, so if you have an idea just tell me.
I came to this forum looking for some lyrics, as many others, and got caught by the kindness, friendlyness and knowledge of so many people, though I'm not a folk singer, not because I dislike it, but mainly for a lack of knowledge on this music. As a soloist, I had been performing negro spirituals with good success in small stages, accompanied by piano, and some fragments of musicals with a jazz trio. (My main musical activity has been in chamber and large choirs with symph. orchestras) As baritone/tenor also performed some Bach, Scarlatti, even Wagner (forgive me, masters!) but I think a competition with Bocelli doesn't make me any favor, and a repertoire enriched with traditional USA, UK, Irish, celtic will be less stressing and a beautiful surprise for my small audiences.
Thank you again, I'll come back tomorrow
