This delightful and straight-forward arrangement of the opening solo in Copland’s first set of Old American Songs is another warhorse of the men’s chorus canon. The solo is easily learned and can be passed between shared singers as if calling from one river bank or barge to the other. For those teaching private lessons to reluctant young men, this arrangement could provide a gateway from the chorus rehearsal to the voice studio.
