A classic from the golden age of the show tune, Smoke Gets In Your Eyes is a soulful and sophisticated number originally written by Jerome Kern and Otto Harbach for the musical Roberta.
Over the years the song has been covered by Bryan Ferry, Jerry Garcia, and was a 1958 chart topping hit on both sides of the Atlantic for doo wop group, The Platters.
With a deep dynamic range and rich, floating harmonies, this luxurious choral arrangement by Chris Hussey for SAB chorus with piano accompaniment, is a beautifully re-imagined new take on a timeless song.
Full of engrossing tension and dramatic relief that swells up through thick, complex chords and a memorable lead line, this is a must perform piece for amateur-intermediate choirs.
