A TRIBUTE TO NORMAN LUBOFF MEN's "tribute" album contains arrangements and original compositions by one of the most renown of American choral musicians, Norman Luboff. Luboff, one of the great American choral conductors and arrangers was the inspiration for many aspiring choral directors. His many albums, including: "Songs of the West," "Songs of the South," and "Songs of the Sea," are well worth revisiting for their warmth and richness of harmony, especially for the male voice. Song titles are: Dream A Little Dream, But Beautiful, Sense You Went Away, Yellow Bird, Valencianita, Carmen Carmella, Aupres De Ma Blonde, A-Roving, Rio Grande, Lowlands, The Old Chisholm Trail, Colorado Trail, Doney Gal, Whoopie Ti Yi Yo, Cool Water, Streets of Laredo, Tender Love, Red River Valley
Promised Land Songs of America This album is currently out of print. This group's first recording is called Promised Land (Songs of America). Reviewer Jerry Weseley Harris sums it up by saying, "(this) is an important addition to the choral music library of all people who enjoy a variety of choral literature presented with the highest standards of choral artistry." The album is divided into the following groups: American Hymns, Spirituals,Songs of the Civil War, Songs of the West, Songs of the Sea, and American Television Themes. Harris was so taken with the humor and skill shown in the TV themes medley he said this alone was worth the price of the album. This album is currently out of print.
