(Vocal Selections). This revised edition features 14 songs from Stephen Schwartz’s breakthrough musical, in all-new engravings reviewed by Schwartz himself! Includes: Alas for You * All for the Best * All Good Gifts * By My Side * Day by Day * Learn Your Lessons Well * Light of the World * Prepare Ye (The Way of the Lord) * and more, plus great artwork and a note-for-note transcription of “Beautiful City” from the 2011 Broadway revival.
Unlike many other Broadway shows, Stephen Schwartz’s musical take on the last days of Jesus is scored for a small combo rather than orchestra, which makes this piano reduction hardly a reduction at all. From the raunchy barrelhouse swagger of “Turn Back, O Man” to the soft-shoe of “All for the Best” and the gorgeous lyricism of “Day by Day” and “All Good Gifts,” this book is full of fun-to-play selections. Also included is “Beautiful City,” a number written for the film. –David Horiuchi
