The Book of Mormon: Sheet Music from the Broadway Musical Released by Alfred Music Publishing

LOS ANGELES, CA  -  Monday, November 14, 2011
Alfred Music Publishing, the official print music publisher of thousands of popular artists, songwriters, and composers, released the highly anticipated, The Book of Mormon: Sheet Music from the Broadway Musical, the companion songbook to the Tony Award®-decorated Broadway musical, arranged for piano and voice.

The Book of Mormon is the official songbook to the hilarious Broadway blockbuster, with music written by Tony award-winning and acclaimed Broadway composer Robert Lopez (Avenue Q) and Tony and Emmy award-winning South Park co-creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone. The collectible songbook allows singers and pianists to apply their talent to the show's award-winning score with piano and vocal arrangements of all 16 songs from the Original Broadway Cast Recording. As a bonus, the souvenir edition features eight pages of full-color photos from the original Broadway production.

The Book of Mormon musical is a religious satire about comically mismatched missionaries and their expedition into an impoverished, diseased, and warlord ravaged town in Uganda. The musical’s wild and raucous songs, co-created with Tony Award-winning composer and lyricist, Robert Lopez, are perfectly paced throughout the irreverent story and include such instant classics such as “Hello,” “Man Up,” “All American Prophet," “Baptize Me," “Tomorrow Is a Latter Day," and many others. This year, The Book of Mormon raked in the most Tony wins—nine total—including “Best Musical,” ”Best Book of a Musical,” “Best Original Score (Music and/or Lyrics) Written for the Theatre,” “Best Performance by an Actress in a Featured Role in a Musical” (Nikki M. James), “Best Direction of a Musical” (Casey Nicholaw and Trey Parker), and “Best Orchestrations” (Larry Hochman and Stephen Oremus).

The Book of Mormon: Sheet Music from the Broadway Musical songbook (00-37573) is now available for $24.99 at music retail stores and atalfred.com.
