Long Live The King Composed by P D Q Bach. Arranged by Peter Schickele. For SAB. Published by Theodore Presser Co. (Catalog # 312-41856, UPC: 680160584543)

** Stanton’s Staff Selection - 2010 **

Theodore Presser Company announces the release of its first P.D.Q. Bach octavo in about ten years, a hilarious and satirical ode to the King of France, who was beheaded during the French Revolution, complete with sound effects. The historical tie-in makes Long Live the King appropriate for high school choir in particular. The program notes have a fictitious story about how the composer found an old manuscript written by his departed uncle, with a note - "I have just composed a major choral work in honor of the recent revolution in France, called Long Live the King; the title, I hasten to assure you, is meant to be ironic. My sympathies are always with the people, especially the people who run taverns. The invention of the guillotine gives, I think you will agree, new meaning to the term 'head of state.'" For intermediate choirs.
