This is yet another unique and spontaneous sounding folk song arrangement by Stephen Hatfield. The light-hearted text tells the story of a courtship and a father’s protective nature. If performed in the colloquial dialect Hatfield prescribes, the piece can transport the audience into a rural English tavern. The simple style leaves your choir time to master the sauntering style, expression and dialect requirements. Difficulty level: easy to moderate.
