Product Description

From Amazon

Unlike many other Broadway shows, Stephen Schwartz's musical take on the last days of Jesus is scored for a small combo rather than orchestra, which makes this piano reduction hardly a reduction at all. From the raunchy barrelhouse swagger of "Turn Back, O Man" to the soft-shoe of "All for the Best" and the gorgeous lyricism of "Day by Day" and "All Good Gifts," this book is full of fun-to-play selections. Also included is "Beautiful City," a number written for the film. --David Horiuchi

You may or may not care for "Godspell" -- for what it's worth, I'm rehearsing it right now. But before spending fifty dollars on this book, you should know that, despite the fact that it's been in print for 30 years, it is full of flat-out typos, misspelled accidentals, mislabeled parts, unexplained divisi, and other musical grekh. The publisher should be ashamed. If you plan to use this book for a performance, be prepared to spend many hours correcting it before rehearsal. (It is also often musically different -- even in the melodies -- from the Original Cast Album, but I don't know who was responsible for that.)
As an example of how slovenly the engraving is, consider the word "Stained!" in "We Beseech Thee". In the first place, it doesn't read "Stained!", it reads "Strained!". But, more than that, it's on two notes, so what the score is actually telling you to sing is "Strainèd!".

While these may not be earth-shattering lyrics such as Sondheim's... the music is still catchy and quite singable. If you are looking for some good audition songs this book is at a good price and has such great character songs such as "Turn Back O' Man" and songs with the most-heart-softening melodies I have ever heard such as "On the Willows" and "By My Side"

"Godspell" is one of the best musicals around, with one of the best scores ever. "All for the Best," "We Beseech Thee," and "On the Willows" are the best, I think. It's hard to separate them! *Everyone* should experience this musical in some way, shape, or form.

This book is for those who want only a rough copy of the lyrical and accompanimental sheet music for the Broadway Musical Godspell. Though not all of the notes and words were accurate to the newer or original cast, it is still thoroughly enjoyable.

I believe Godspell to be one of the greatest musicals I have ever seen. The script is easy to follow and the play turns out glorious!
