Inspired by the solo piano/vocal version by Sara Bareilles, this Elton John pop classic has an added layer of reflective emotion and builds to a powerful climax before settling down again. Written for piano and treble vocals, the chart features some lyric solo spots. Great for the ballad spot in your SSAA group's set! A few 5-part splits, but largely 4-part writing.
Octavo-style piano and vocals written together
