The Girl from Ipanema

‘The Girl from Ipanema’ was written in 1962 with music by Antonio Carlos Jobim and Portuguese lyrics by Vinicius de Moraes, the English added by Norman Gimbel. The Stan Getz recording with the voice of Astrud Gilberto quickly became the definitive version. I have tried to create a Latin feel to the music even though we’re singing in English! Apologies to the Basses who needed to hit and sustain a low F on more than one occasion … sorry guys 🙁
