Product description

Simple Gifts is a Shaker song written and composed in 1848, generally attributed to Elder Joseph Brackett from Alfred Shaker Village. This tune was almost unknown until Aaron Copland used the melody in the ballet Apalachian Spring first performed in 1944. Since then, it has become very popular and appears in many arrangements.

This new arrangement by George Arthur is for 2 soprano voices and piano. This simple but effective setting is enhanced by introducing imitation in the melody between the two voice parts. The piano part is straightforward but includes references to the two-part writing of the melody by having three short bell-like interjections. The idea of turning is hinted at in the piano with the use of quavers towards the end of the piece. This setting would be suitable for all female choirs, but especially a children’s choir, who could probably perform the piece from memory.
