Get Me To The Church On Time


We are pleased to offer Rosemary Clooney's hard-swingin', foot-tappin' version of Get Me To The Church On Time. Lovingly transcribed and adapted by Jon Harpin from the Nelson Riddle original, this charts is a belter of a vocal number. The church / tubular bells of the Riddle original (which are pretty key to making the chart convincing) have been scored onto the Piano part, and if your pianist uses a keyboard a good bell sound at the appropriate times will sound great. There are a couple of cameo solos - Trumpet 2 and Alto 2 on Flute - both written out for you, though the Alto 2 / Flute is really only optional, to add a bit of tonal colour. The chart is a reasonably tough blow, but fairly straigh-ahead. The vocal key is D throughout.
