I did this piece in the fall with my 9th grade women and they loved it. Sherman and Sherman are also the collaborators behind Mary Poppins, and “Hushabye Mountain” has some echoes of “Feed the Birds.” The piece is in C minor and has a haunting, mysterious feel. The part writing is quite smart with the refrain in three parts and the verses usually in two parts or unison with a descant. I would recommend using this piece in the fall as it is a great tone builder and very engaging. Rating: Easy
