Key written in: B♭ Major
How many parts: 4
Type: Barbershop
Lyrics:Oh what a beautiful day in May. Oh what a beautiful day!
Comments:It starts out nicely in the key of Bb but somehow ends up on a final E-Major chord, a tri-tone away from the tonic. The harmonic steps to get there are legal but the melodic cadence is destroyed. This tag is not for sissies, but it can be fun if you like surprising adventures. Moving from the last note in Measure 6 to the first note in Measure 7 the lead stays on the same note, the tenor moves up one half-step, the bari moves down one half-step, and the bass moves down one whole step.
