I’ve been using this piece for years and my copy is falling apart – that’s how much I love it! The text of this brisk and lively piece is about riding on a sleigh through the winter night on the way to a village dance. The ranges are perfect for changing voices. The girls sing their part, the boys sing their part, and then the parts go together. In schools that have gender separate choirs, each choir can learn their own parts and it can be put together in one rehearsal. A great winter concert closer!
