Marina - choral arrangement SATB a cappella
Nobody expected that Marina would become such a worldwide hit. The song was actually written in a hurry when Rocco Granata was looking for a B-side for his single Manuela in 1959. The B-side became world famous and the song was regularly covered, among others by artists such as Dalida and Louis Armstrong.
During the World Choir Games in November 2021, Rocco Granata was a guest at the opening ceremony, with Marina and enthusiastic backing vocals. The song now also ended up at number one in the voting during the Week of Belgian Music. In addition to an independent choral version for SATB and piano by Carl Van Eyndhoven (°1959), the result is also one for SABar and SSA.
