With Grease celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, this new Soprano Solo comes at the perfect time. The song was written by John Farrar, as the contractually agreed vocal solo for Olivia Newton-John to perform in the film. With simple accompaniments and a song well-known by audiences of all ages, this title is the perfect choice for Soprano players looking to combine their lyrical playing with power in the top register (highest note top C). *An alternate lower soloist part is also provided with this publication.
Mademoiselle from Armentières (also known as Hinky Dinky) was one of the most popular songs of World War One and known in many versions, often with extremely dubious lyrics! The origins of the jaunty melody are not certain but it could date back as far as the 1830's and may be a French military tune. The instructions on 'standing' and 'sitting' are intended as a guide only and should be adapted to suit the needs and athleticism of individual bands! A perfect addition to a band’s repertoire in this WWI Centenary year.
