Close To You (The Carpenters)

This is a very nostalgic "oldies" song. Karen Carpenter (who tragically died at a young age and who suffered from a serious eating disorder) had a very unique, stunningly pure voice which makes one stop what ever theyre doing to just to hear her beautiful, pure voice. This song was one of the Carpenters trademark songs. I really like this sheet music (to this song) because it is challenging enough to learn and play, however is not so challenging that you cant enjoy hearing the songs sweet, endearing message (both the melody and words) while playing it.

Close to You

This is a great piece with piano similar to what the Carpenters played.

Great song for low voices

I printed this song out in the original key. Karen Carpenter had such a rich low voice - her songs are good for my students who also have low voices. Nice arrangement- nothing unexpected accompaniment wise.
