Description
A five-acap-tracks-tribute to Manhattan Transfer; I produced it together with two singers: Elizabeth Parsons from England, who did the female vocals and Stephan Reiser, Bass, from Munich. I'm trying to color the middle range with an unobstrusive tenor.

Music: The Fantasticks, Arrangement: Manhattan Transfer
Vocals: Elizabeth Parsons, Stephan Reiser, Andreas Herrmann (Dirigent)
Production: Andreas Herrmann (Dirigent)

I published a first version on icomp a couple of days ago.
This version for MacJams has a few small technical improvements ...

Lyrics
Try to remember the kind of September
When life was young, and oh! so mellow;
Try to remember the kind of September
When grass was green, and grain was yellow,
Try to remember the kind of September
When you were a tender and callow fellow;
Try to remember, and if you remember
Then follow, follow, follow.

Try to remember when life was so tender
That no one wept except the willows.
Try to remember when life was so tender
That love was an ember about to billow.
Try to remember the kind of September
When life was young, and oh! so mellow;
Try to remember the kind of September
When grass was green, and grain was yellow,
Try to remember the kind of September
When you were a tender and callow fellow;
Try to remember, and if you remember
Then follow, follow, follow.

Deep in December it's nice to remember
Although you know the snow will follow,
Deep in December it's nice to remember
The fire of September that made us mellow.
Deep in December our hearts should remember
And follow, follow, follow.

Good job here
Please, don`t get me wrong.
I like the song and I also like the performance.
There is no mistake, except the wrong pronounciation.
But, I would like to hear less vibrato, especially on the longer tones.
The harmony of the chords is a bit in trouble when the singers perform the classical way.
But what do I know? :oD

Congrats for this high-level piece!!

Wonderful Arrangement and Singing Andreas
You never cease to amaze me with the range of music you can do, and do very well.

Kudos to you, Elizabeth, and Stephen for a beautiful song that's very well done.

Much respect
You are doing a great job with these choral performances. This really highlights the beauty of human voices when they're layered up and beautifully blended. Delightful arrangement too. The very formal classical pronunciation is slightly less to my tastes than what I've heard on your other tracks, but that's just me, and the performances are pristine and quite stunning in their accuracy and poise.

Fine
I tend to agree with the comments about the pronunciation: I suspect that 'formal' pronunciation is more appropriate for mining irony in contemporary music than not. Still, there's no denying the crystalline beauty of this track. Exquisite stuff.

For Me
Nothing can beat the sound of the human voice in harmony when it's done right and you certainly do it right everytime. I was a big fan of Manhattan Transfer in their hey day, but I haven't heard them for years... so thank you for bringing back this pleasure, cheers M

I remember this from growing up
But not nearly as well sung - WOW! I'll bet you had fun with this one. It's great to hear your varied skills coming through in these new MT numbers.

Be well,
Doug
