Geisler ARSEPS03 - Let Me Call You Sweetheart (Arranged by Richard Geisler)
LET ME CALL YOU SWEETHEART, 1910 by Beth Slater Whitson and Leo Friedman. For as long as romance be joined to love and lyric be joined to melody, just so long will this heart-felt song endure. This arrangement features an unusually lyrical bass line...a lower, less obvious melody that plays gently along with the soprano melody. It is quite possible to unite a tenor, which plays the soprano melody line, with a bass to create a love duet between two soft-spoken instruments: 'Let me hear you whisper that you love me too.'
