Here's the entire catalog of songs we've done at Northern Pines Harmony Brigade.
A Fool Such as I
Make 'Em Laugh
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
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
Another hit from Crossroads, or friends in the High Sierras Harmony Brigade first brought this one to the eXtreme Quartetting movement. When you get to the tag, you'll see why it's eXtreme!
Your First Day in Heaven
This exciting gospel arrangement was first heard in the Sweet Adeline arena by champs The Buzz, but most of us guys know it by the performance by Crossroads. There are some high notes here and there, but keep them light and you're in for a fun ride.
Between You and the Birds and the Bees and Cupid
A 1951 country hit by Pee Wee King sounded like just the thing for Throwback. So they turned to Aaron Dale, who has arranged a bunch of country songs for Sean Devine’s quartets. The result is a hit that is just plain fun.
Lullabye (Goodnight My Angel)
This is one of Billy Joel’s most beloved songs. It first caught the attention of the barbershop world through the rendition by the Gas House Gang. Several Brigades have included this one before, including NCHB in 2007.
Moonlight Becomes You
This beautiful ballad 1942 became a standard recorded by many artists, most notable Bing Crosby. This lovely arrangement is the one we know from 2003 champs Power Play.
Other End of a Kiss
Wrap Your Trouble In Dreams
