3 Quodlibets for a Gaggle of Ghouls : Unlikely Company, The Ghost Ship & We're Back!
A quodlibet or ‘what you will’ is a group of songs that can all be sung at the same time, similar to partner songs, but written as a set.
- “Unlikely Company” is a set of five songs (sung two to five at a time) featuring a strange mix of Halloween creatures: the Fay, the Troll, the Frankenstein Monsters, the Banshee and Bug-a-boo.
- “The Ghost Ship” includes five songs featuring the crew of a Ghost Ship (the Black Pearl, maybe?): the captain, the cook, the first mate, the cabin boy and the navigator.
- “We’re Back!” includes four songs featuring undead Halloween monsters: the skeleton, the vampire, the mummy and the zombie.
These quodlibets were originally available in the “Thirteen for Halloween” songbook which you can get at SongsForTeaching.com. There is also a “Thirteen for Halloween” CD available. These both feature different arrangements of this same Halloween quodlibet. Check out ThirteenforHalloween.com for more fun Halloween music and videos.
