This traditional folk melody is updated with additional lyrics, and contemporary harmony. Designed for a full choir, this arrangement initially hints at the “Americana” style of Copland, and gradually builds to an up-tempo 6/4 climactic section, returning to an introspective, simple conclusion.

Alto: A2 – C4
Tenor: C2 – G3
