Blue Moon, written by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart in 1934, has had many treatments over the decades. Mel Tormé made a smooth hit version in the 1940s, Elvis Presley put it on his first album in 1956 and The Marcels had a doo-wop hit with it in 1961, but ‘An American Werewolf in London’ was the first movie to associate this most romantic of songs with lycanthropy.
This brand new arrangement by Simon Foxley & Christopher Hussey for SATB choir makes the evocative standard a welcome addition to the Novello Choral Pops series. The juxtaposition of melancholy and melodic creates a bittersweet atmosphere of love and lust, perfect for a classically romantic addition to your choir's repertoire. Your choir's own interpretation of this standard will thrill audiences, invigorating the already-long list of cover versions.
