Description

Piano and Vocal arrangements of every song from Eva Cassidy's posthumous anthology album, Songbird, complete with full lyrics and guitar chord boxes.

Classified in genres ranging from Jazz to traditional R & B, Eva Cassidy effortlessly blended styles with her rich, natural voice creating sublime beautiful songs. This album contains a fantastic mix and exemplifies her fantastic voice.

Despite her sensitive and soulful voice she remained largely unknown outside Washington D.C., until her influence was tragically cut short by melanoma in November 1996 at the age of 33. Songbird has become Eva Cassidy's legacy, featuring familiar traditional songs: including Wade In The Water, Wayfaring Stranger and her signature tune, a unique arrangement of Over the Rainbow.

Rating Review
Customer Rating I have recommended this album to many of my friends because it is easy listening music which I have enjoyed on many occasions. Eva's voice is so warm and relaxing. I feel sad to know that she will never get to know of her fame on Earth but I hope she is being rewarded for it in heaven. The way she re-created 'Somewhere Over The Rainbow' is truly amazing, I feel it shows her personality through the laid-back style and rhythm. I hope all those who have bought it will enjoy it as much as I have.

Customer Rating Simply perfect songs, although Eva's voice is so distinctive, it needs her style to emulate the feel of the songs.

Customer Rating I heard eva's beautifula nd unique voice on the television advertising ''songbird'' and fell in love with it. even though this type of music isnt really my style, i think its so amazing. i love the way she puts so much emotion into it, i can sit there and cry through an entire song! wish u were still alive eva so you could carry on with your valubale input into the history of music but what we already have from you will be treasured forever!

Customer Rating I'm 14. and i think Eva Cassidy is the best music writer ever, if i could i would love to write a song with her, but as this is impossible i'm going to have to settle just to listening to her. Eva i think you're fantastic, i hope to one day become a singer..and eva you're going to be one of my greatest influences.
Samantha

Customer Rating The first time I heard Eva Cassidy, I stood still. Her voice is so hauntingly beautiful, and so captivating. She was blessed with one of the widest ranges of vocal ability I have ever heard. Folk one minute, gospel the next.. she can do it all. Some of my favorites are"Wayfaring Stranger", "Songbird", "I Know You By Heart", and of course, "Over the Rainbow". You won't be disappointed.

Customer Rating What can you say. Eva is undoutedly one of the most well loved singers of all time. I believe that not only do her beautiful voice and music live on, but also her spirit in this.

Customer Rating Bought sheetmusic from Eva Cassidy, it was great! Play every day her music. Thank you Musicroom for such a good delivery and service.

Customer Rating I love the piano to fields of gold and the way Eva Cassidy plays with the melody and music in the song.

Customer Rating A beautifully produced album containing some of the finest of Eva Cassidy's songs. The accuracy and clarity of the printed music, words and notation is excellent. My only disappointment in the album is that the piano music is solely as an accompaniment to the vocalist: the songs cannot be played as pieces in their own right. I would have liked a mixture of both. Perhaps this should have been made clearer in the description of the album on the internet.

Customer Rating A classic - as a secondary school music teacher, you'll need this. Singable, yet challenging, and ideal for GCSE performances.

Customer Rating Excellent quick and efficient service

Customer Rating I purchased the songbook for the 'Over the Rainbow' song. I was disappointed to find all the music was set in such a low key. I think it would be a good idea if the key the music was set in could be published somewhere on the cover to save having to buy the book to discover whether the key signatures will suit the voice or not.

Customer Rating Sheet music perfect. Arrived in excellent condition. Packaging ideal, & protective thank you. Sometimes it's nice to have a bit of info about the artist but in this case none, just the music which is fine.
