Mary Goetze has arranged this simple but hauntingly beautiful Russian folk song for unison voices and piano. She has added an optional flute or recorder. It is simple enough for young choirs and is a perfect piece for teaching phrasing, vowel sounds and breath control. It is helpful to have some literature that allows us the freedom to spend time on learning these basic singing skills.
