The arrangement of this folksong is very accessible to a beginning men’s chorus yet it is interesting enough for seasoned ensembles. Ranges are in a octave or less and lie easily within the appropriate voice part. The tempo is listed as “brightly” and has a slower contrasting B section. The piano accompaniment is slightly difficult with a few awkward voicings, but complements the light character of the piece. This is very appropriate for a program full of contrasts in terms of text and style.
