Wanetta Hill created the lyrics to this jazzy setting of Over the Moon in Love, available in SATB, SSA, and SSAA. We have all heard someone describe incredible happiness as being "over the moon." Wanetta took this idea to use many "space" terms (orbiting, gravity, spinning, etc.) to describe her love for her man. It is written in "big band" style, and drives with energy until the very end.
Take a look at the video I created to help you think of creative ways to present this piece in class. One of the main characteristics of the music involves imitation and independent lines. The harmonies come as a result of independent lines, with a middle section in homophonic texture. The piano gets in the act as well, imitating the voices in some places.
If you choose to sing this piece with the recorded mp3 accompaniment, but you find that the current accompaniment recording is too fast for your students, just write me at "firstname.lastname@example.org," and tell me the exact tempo you need. Following your purchase, I'll be more than happy to e-mail the revised accompaniment back to you "within the day" in most cases.
