In the Mood is an anthology of choral arrangements of seventeen classic popular songs by such great names as Fats Waller, George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Jerome Kern, and Richard Rodgers. All the pieces are expertly arranged by the editors to suit the needs of amateur SATB groups--school
choirs, youth choirs, or chamber choirs of any description--looking for lighter popular repertoire. There is a mixture of accompanied and unaccompanied numbers in a variety of styles: smoky blues, up-tempo scat, sentimental swing, exuberant Dixieland, sophisticated close-harmony, and a couple of
opulent show-stoppers like "Somewhere over the Rainbow."
