The ensemble consensus on favorite Brigadoon songs to sing

I've been asking cast members what their favorite song in the show is.

Not surprisingly the votes seem split between the two first numbers in the show, which both heavily feature the ensemble.

The Prologue Once in the Highlands is a lovely, slightly haunting ballad featuring very nice, rich harmonies.

The next song is the bright uptempo Down on MacConnachy Square, which is somewhat like that number in Oliver where are the vendors are selling their wares and such. (The name of the Oliver song is escaping me amazingly.)

Cast members are picking these same two songs as their two favorites, from Ian Teter, who had never heard anything from Brigadoon until he got cast in this show to Sean Patrick O'Connor who first heard of the show when he was 8 years old!

You can click on the links above and hear clips from the original Broadway cast's recording of the show.

Love the internet!
