Alfred Publishing21816, SATB, $1.85A perfect choice for school or community choirs, this lovely pairing of two beautiful folk tunes creates a mood of wistful peace. The lyrics of both songs center on a longing for a loved one who is away. The tenors and basses take the lead in both tunes, enjoying the sweeping melodies and 3-part harmony. The ladies are often in three parts as well, and the result of this voicing is a rich, lush sound. Though a brief opening a capella section and the 6-part divisi may present some challenges, the parts are not difficult, and this piece offers an excellent opportunity for your choir to develop their ability to sing extended legato phrases while broadening their experience with American folk song literature.
