Li'l Liza Jane
This traditional American folk song has
been associated with African-American culture as early as the 19th century.
Liza or Eliza were standard female characters in minstrel shows. It was
also used as a dance song during that same time. Now-a-days one fines it
in several different genres including bluegrass, jazz, folk, and roll 'n roll.
The lyrics vary according to the rendition and time period it was sung.
It is up-tempo and fun to sing. This
arrangement was originally conceived to be sung by all-boys groups, CCB or TCB
(T = Treble). Since the upper part is written in the treble clef, it also
may be sung by mixed groups (SCB) although the girls part may be a bit low in
some places. When singing arrangements with low female parts, we recommend
that directors do not use the same group of girls for every piece.
Constantly singing with chest phonation may be detrimental to young voices, so
it is important to sing music which utilizes head phonation most of the time.
It may be rated easy to medium easy.
