Note from the Composer


Several decisions always have to be made in translating the score from a
show into a book of vocal selections. In the case of Wicked, I found it trickier than
usual, because many of the songs are structured to carry the story in the show, but
out-of-context would be clearer and more effective to perform in a somewhat
altered format.
In the end, I chose to try to make the songs work for this medium, and thus
to make changes in certain cases from the way they appear in the stage show and
on the cast album. This entailed writing new lyrics in some instances ("No One
Mourns the Wicked" and "Defying Gravity"), providing new endings for some of
the songs ("Dancing Through Life", "Defying Gravity7', "Wonderful7'), and
eliminating interior chorus sections, intros, or other show-oriented material from
several of the selections. In addition, I excerpted one section of the opening of Act
Two to create a separate song, "I Couldn't Be Happier." Two of the songs appear
in the book, as in the show, as duets- "AS Long as You're Mine" and "For Good"
-but of course, either can be performed as a solo.
(In special circumstances, when someone needs a song in the original show
format, that can be obtained by emailing me at schwartz8stephenschwartz.com.
But it seemed to me that for most people and purposes, these changes would be
preferable.)
The piano accompaniment is essentially a reduction of what is played by
the show orchestra, although some adjustments were necessary to accommodate
the vocal line. Those interested in having the vocal line and a separate piano
accompaniment should see the Vocal Selections version of this book.
The chord symbols used should be relatively familiar to anyone accustomed
to reading such symbols, but a few specific explanations are probably in order:
C5 means a C chord with no 3rd (CG)
Csus2 means a C chord with a 2nd rather than a 3rd (CDG)
C(add 9) means a C major chord plus the 2nd or 9th (CDEG)
C(add 4) means a C major chord plus the 4th (CEFG)
I want to acknowledge the help of Alex Lacamoire, Stephen Oremus and
Mark Carlstein in preparing and editing this music, so that this book can be as
clear, thorough, and accurate as possible.
I hope you enjoy it.
