Try A Little Tenderness is the perfect choice for amateur choirs seeking an elegant and sophisticated centrepiece to their choral pop repertoire. A classic song of love and longing, this is based on Otis Redding's smooth and soulful take on the song, and is bursting with rich harmonies and jazzy chord progressions.

Try A Little Tenderness has been arranged by Jeremy Birchall for SATB Chorus with Piano accompaniment, this piece opens with a reasonable challenging intro, setting the scene for beautiful and tender song that is sure to captivate and touch audiences. Originally composed by Jimmy Campbell, Reg Connelly and Harry M. Woods, the song was radically changed for Otis Redding's version, featuring an incredible introduction backed by the ever-so-subtle instruments of Booker T. and the M.G.'s before breaking into a more upbeat, slowly evolving rhythm and blues climax. 

With legendary producer and songwriter Isaac Hayes working on Redding's arrangement, this soulful blues ballad will sound simply stunning sung by an SATB chorus, the interplay of the different voices' harmonies will breathe new life into this classic love song.
