The Vicar Of Dibley (23rd Psalm)

This piece is actually a setting of "The Lord Is My Shepherd", composed for Howard Goodall for choir, organ and orchestra. Featured as the theme music to the TV series "The Vicar Of Dibley", the gentle melody is now well-known.

 

I've written 3 arrangements - all at the intermediate level and each contains all music of the original (including the bits not normally heard on television)!

 

Which arrangement suits your ensemble? You can see and hear them all in the links below...

The Logical Song (Supertramp)

This edition contains an advanced intermediate arrangement for 4 guitars/large ensemble of the fantastic piece "The Logical Song", written by Roger Hodgson and performed by Supertramp.

 

This arrangement uses the full range on the guitar from the lowest note right up to the 17th fret at one point! Guitar 4 is slightly easier than the other lines, but stays faithful to the original's bass line where possible. This part is supplied in treble and in bass clef to suit either a classical guitar or a bass instrument.

 

My arrangement contains the original solo sax breaks, both as played and in a slightly simpler form too which is a bit less frantic under the fingers.

 

This is just the foot-tapping piece to get stuck in the audience's ears and to be with them all the way home after the concert!
