The Podd Brothers have just released our (hopefully) final batch of Virtual Choir Kits!! These are brand new arrangements of well-known and well-loved songs, in a variety of styles (truly something for everyone) and created with virtual choirs in mind. SATB, SAB, 2-part, and Unison voicings available. Click here to jump right in: http://poddbrothers.com/choirkits
These innovative kits are best explained in this video –
but the basic gist is this:
We made awesome new arrangements of songs you probably know, and took care of all the pre-production that would normally go into making a virtual choir (guide tracks, accompaniment tracks, step-by-step instructions for the singers, and directors.) Basically, we set out to make this process easier, more accessible, and more musical – allowing singers and conductors to start with the fun part (the music!!) instead of all the hassle that bogs down the creation of any virtual choir project. And it includes all licenses and permissions you need to made a virtual choir video and post it anywhere you want.
Our new spring collection includes:
-“It Had to Be You” w/ “You Mae Me Love You” (vocal jazz settings)
-Hallelujah Chorus (original and adapted versions for aspiring choirs) – both accompanied by full orchestra
-2 Spirituals “There Is More Love Somewhere” (powerful, building, with orchestral accompaniment) and “Over My Head” (energized, gospel setting, with a full band)
-“Ombra Mai Fù” (Largo from ‘Xerxes’) – reimagined with a modern treatment of the accompaniment, while preserving the pristine beauty of Handel’s original melody and character.
-An Easter medley combining “Christ the Lord Is Risen Today” w/ “Joyful, Joyful We Adore Thee” in a majestic choir anthem w/ full orchestra for Easter Sunday.
We were thrilled with the feedback from so many of you about our Holiday Caroling kits, and how well they worked. Hundreds of schools, churches, and organizations used them to sing together and spread some holiday cheer when the world needed it most, and were honored to have played a part, truly! Thanks in advance for checking out the music, and if you feel so inclined help us spread the word so we can get through the coming months with group singing in the best, safest way possible.
We’d love if you can purchase them directly from us of course, but if you must use an approved vendor with your organization, these will be available at jwpepper in about a week.
All the best,
The Podd Brothers (Adam and Matt)
