Today’s New for 2023 Featured Arrangement is Castle on the Hill by Ed Sheeran.
This SATB opener is pretty straightforward. Begins with a bass clef solo that is joined by the choir in the pre-chorus. The choir takes over on the chorus which is full of tight harmonies and suspensions all over the top of a tom groove. The second verse features back and forth between the treble and bass singers and builds into a big dance break where the horns soar on the melody. Out of the dance break is a short pull back moment featuring the soloist again that builds into a key change and final chorus. This arrangement was originally written for Flip Side from Indianola High School in Iowa.
The track features Brian McCallister & Ines Cring on vocals, and Steve Cochran on guitar.
