Come Rain or Come Shine


Here is the Helen O'Connell version of Johnny Mercer's classic "Come Rain or Come Shine". This is an authentic chart, and to the best of our knowledge was never commercially recorded by her. It is a piece of American musical heritage and we are proud to be able to offer it here. This chart is a "2-in-1", in that it comes double-sided, with and without strings. In the without-strings version both Altos double Flutes and both Tenors double Clarinets. In the with-strings version there are no sax doubles, so please use this one if your players don't double. Both versions feature an Alto sax solo. There are two conductor scores in the pack, with and without strings. The string section is Violins ABC, Viola and Cello. The chart was scored for 6 brass and we have expanded it to 8, but have retained the original voicings, ie the 4th voices are optional and the chart works well with 6 brass. The chart runs at 3 minutes long, and is structured as intro, vocal chorus, tutti with Alto sax solo, final half chorus. The vocal key is Bb.
