Current Songs

Make 'Em Laugh

Make 'Em Laugh
Words by Arthur Freed, Music by Nacio Herb Brown. Arrangement by Clay Hine. As sung by Keepsake. Recording by Tim Waurick.

Ebb Tide

Ebb Tide
Words by Carl Sigman. Music by Robert Maxwell. Arrangement by Fred King. Recording by Tim Waurick.

Ebb Tide was written by Robert Maxwell (1921-2012) and Carl Sigman (1909-2000). Maxwell, primarily a harpist won a scholarship to Julliard School and, at 17 became the youngest member of the National Symphony Orchestra. Sigman graduated from law school but, with encouragement of his friend Johnny Mercer, soon embarked on a songwriting career. He wrote such hits as Dream Along with Me, Enjoy Yourself (It's Later than You Think), and What Now My Love.

Arranger Fred King is a legend in the world of barbershop harmony. A long time choral and instrumental teacher in the Maryland school system, Fred was exposed to barbershop music while still a high school student. His long association with the Barbershop Harmony Society yielded many awards and honors. He was the baritone of the 1970 international quartet champion, the Oriole Four. In 1971 he directed the chorus of the Chesapeake (Dundalk, Maryland) to the international chorus gold metal. Fred was named to the BHS Hall of Fame in 2004.

This arrangement by Fred is full of lush, modern harmonies not usually identified with the barber shop style but which beautifully enhance the melody of the song. 

I Can't Give You Anything But Love

I Can't Give You Anything But Love
Arrangement by David Harrington, recording by David Harrington

This great arrangement has been around for quite a while, but it got new life when Ringmasters found it and came up with an extended tag with quotations from several other songs. David cleaned it up a bit for our use, while making his debut recording our learning tracks.

A Little Patch of Heaven

A Little Patch of Heaven
Words Glenn Slater. Music by Alan Menken. Arrangement by Aaron Dale for Crossroads. As sung by Crossroads. Recording by Tim Waurick.
