This straightforward setting of a very popular tune is yet another example of Moses Hogan’s impact on ethnic music of the 21st century. This work is one of his more accessible pieces, with the women dividing only for brief passages. Short solo passages provide for a great way to feature emerging singers. If you are new to Hogan’s works, and a bit daunted by some of the complexities, this is a great place to start.
