Since 1971, harmonizers worldwide have turned to the Barberpole Cat Songbook and Program for a reliable resource of singable songs “everyone knows.”
The Barberpole Cat Songbook Vol. II is designed to bridge the gap between Polecat songs and music at a difficulty level that many of our Harmony Brigades sing. This book is designed for the member who has “graduated” from the standard Polecat book. You’ll find songs in this songbook you are already familiar with; indeed, for many chapters, Boston Common tunes or “Hello Mary Lou (Goodbye Heart)” are basically de facto Polecats. We have your original works – like the Norm Starks piece – as well as tried-and-true favorites.
