This fresh adaptation is based on Camila Meza's beautiful, powerful arrangement of the Stephen Sondheim song from "Sweeney Todd", and featuring a soprano/alto soloist and space for an instrumental solo (notated as guitar, but flexible). Marked here as challenge level 5, the key challenge with this chart is the rhythmic intricacy of the soloistic phrasing given to the ensemble, which is made easier by utilizing the demo recording and the available rehearsal tracks.
Fully Notated Piano and Bass Parts, Guitar, Drums. Full score and Vocals/Piano score included
