All the Things You Are
A classic of the Fred Waring legacy, arranged by Roy Ringwald, composed by Jerome Kern for 1939’s “Very Warm for May.”
As We Are Walking in the Light
Our traditional processional–we will discuss the “recipe” at the Workshop.
The Bend in the Road
From the musical Green Gables, this quartet and choral coda describes the many ways our connections with each other come in unexpected ways.
Canticle of Praise
A powerful piece by Ohio composer John Ness Beck, making the text of the psalmist come to life!
Prepare your best Cockney accent for this charming piece from Oliver! Lots of stopped T!
Do You Hear What I Hear
A holiday tradition of the Cardinal Chorale, sung each year at the post-Christmas Pickerington concert.
Great God Above
We will probably omit the second stanza of this one.
Baroque bouncing at its finest! This music of Handel tells the story of Judas Maccabeus.
A showpiece for a true second bass, the choir serve the role of the jazz combo.
This arrangement for tenors and basses features a short solo.
A double-choir piece where the men form one choir and the ladies form another.
Hush! Somebody’s Callin’ My Name
This a cappella setting makes a great sandwich with Mr. Cornell’s “Let Me Ride.” An opportunity for a soulful soloist who can “get my ‘ligion in time.”
I Hear Music/I Love You
Our traditional beginning to the Waring set, this opener was used at the beginning of Pennsylvanians’ concerts during their years on the road.
I’m Goin’ Up a Yonder
A favorite of many Cardinal Chorale members, we will give you the road map at the Workshop.
In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning
Made popular in the film Sleepless in Seattle this song gives us an opportunity to work on our schwa vowel in the word “the.”
Leave No Song Unsung
A favorite of Cardinal Chorale ladies.
Let Me Ride
This song works really well in combination with Hush! Listen for the stopped “t” in the word “let.”
Let Mortal Tongues Awake
We will invite the audience to sing along on the final stanza of this song.
Let There Be Music
A fanfare sung by many Chorales. We will sing it a step higher before “As We Are Walking in the Light”
Man of La Mancha (I, Don Quixote)
A men’s classic.
On My Way
This upbeat crowd pleaser from the hit-Broadway musical Violet. Chorale alumnus Patrick Sulken crafted this arrangement that is a crowd and singer pleaser!
Written and popularized by Barry Manilow, the choral score closely follows the version he recorded.
Pledge of Allegiance
A short fanfare before “Stars of Glory”
A traditional Cardinal Chorale piece, we will learn both the Swahili and English words.
Song of Farewell
A lyrical a cappella setting of a familiar Irish blessing.
Stars of Glory
A solo with exciting choral parts!
Thank You Very Much
From the musical Scrooge. We’ll put this to use as an encore – or as an a cappella thank you to folks who help us.
This Is My Father’s World
A favorite of anyone who has sung it or heard it. It has a wonderful, surprising, goosebump giving coda! Low basses will enjoy the chance to rumble, too. The challenge: singing long musical phrases.
Till There Was You
We will add the final “ta-da” to this solo.
Together, Wherever We Go
Arranged for us by former accompanist Sarah J. Baker
Way Back Home
This will be part of our sequence of songs about home.
