  1. Autumn Leaves Piano. The falling leaves Drift by the window The autumn leaves Of red and gold I see your lips The summer kisses The sunburned hands I used to hold Since you went away The days grow long And soon I’ll hear Old winter’s song But I miss you most of all My darling When autumn leaves.
  2. Sep 19,  · “Autumn Leaves“ has been covered many times by different singers. The French original was called “ Les Feuilles Mortes ” (as in “Dead Leaves,” which might be more appropriately translated to “Dry Leaves” or “Still Leaves”), with lyrics penned by Jacques Prévert.
  3. The Vasari Singers are one of this country`s top mixed chamber choirs, and conducted by Jeremy Backhouse they perform 23 songs and ballads under the title of Deep Purple. Most of the arrangements are close harmony so that does pose some challenges for the less able choir, but songs like Henry Mancini's Moon River in the arrangement by Clay Warnick should hold no terrors.
  4. You can choose select singers to perform the moving second part, or let most students do the moving part while your select singers do the melodic sustained part. The third time through the verse, there is a flute solo. We have suggested some movement ideas here as well. Each student should have a single colorful autumn leaf (real or created).

  6. Autumn Leaves Harmonic Analysis. Autumn Leaves is a 32 bar song form that follows the AABC song form structure. Each section is 8 bars long and marked out on the example below for you to follow along with. Having two A sections which are almost the same means the harmony and chords in the first half of the tune are almost identical.
  7. Vasari Singers: Deep Purple - Close Harmony Arrangements. This selection of close harmony arrangements offers several well-known items by composers as diverse as Kern, Gershwin and Mancini, but also includes some newer works, including a Vasari commission from Bob Chilcott called "Dances in the Streets" and "Birthday Madrigals" by John Rutter.
  8. This is a relatively upbeat song for autumn. However much of a killer you are on the dancefloor, for this one just be smooth and simple. “Autumn Song” gets extra points for being extra-long, clocking in at more than 10 minutes, perfect for when you just don’t want the music to end. #5 Eric Clapton- Autumn Leaves.
