Subject: RE: Chord Req: Simple Gifts -Looking for an arrangemen
The most complicated arrangement I know of is in Bartok's Second Rhapsody for Violin and Orchestra. (Presumably it was originally an Eastern European folk tune and Bartok got it direct from there - his take on it predates Copland by several years).
If you can get human voices to do what Bartok has the orchestra doing, you'll have a choir that can outsing the Swingles.
