    We’ve purchased your “The Chipmunk Song” (unison/optional 2-part). Can you point me to an on-line recording of this arrangement that I can point my chorus members to?

      Thanks for your note, Paul. Unfortunately I don’t have copies of arr. recordings. Did you try contacting Alfred’s customer service? They’re very helpful. There might be performances on YouTube or choral msg boards. Hope your group enjoys performing my arrangement! Take care, Jeff
