Remember the Swingle Singers?

 

When I was in high school, I was introduced to the Swingle Singers, singing their fabulous arrangements of Bach preludes and fugues, Scarlatti sonatas, and all kinds of wondrous musical confections.  Only in my later years have I even become familiar with the music of people like Jerome Kern and even then, only because I went to see the film “Mrs. Henderson Presents.”  This song was featured prominently in that film, though not in the arrangement by Ward Swingle.  I just discovered this on YouTube and wanted to share it with my readers.  It certainly cheered up what was becoming a very gloomy evening for me!  I think I’ll listen to it at least 4 or 5 more times this evening to remind myself that music can cure even the gloomiest situation.  Hope you enjoy it too!
