Hail Rock Hall

August 5, 2009 12:19 PM

Pirates For Sail is headed to the Rock Hall Pirate Festival this weekend. I rearranged the event's theme song into a madrigal of sorts, and made a quick-and-dirty laptop demo just to see if I could.

I thought that "Long Live Graybeard," aka "Hail Rock Hall," deserved a more complex arrangement, so I mustered up all my musical knowledge and skill (almost none) and turned it into what I think can be semi-accurately called a madrigal for SATB. It was then suggested that an MP3 might be of value, so I loaded up Audacity, blew the dust off the microphone and set to work. An hour later, I had made this. I perform the bass and tenor parts, and the soprano and alto are performed by another pirate who wishes to remain anonymous.

Very nice. One of my favorite canons. MeFiMu needs more a cappella!! (and you should include that tag, FWIW).
