In our Village classes, you will hear a lovely rendition of the Shaker song, “Simple Gifts,” found on your home CD, that we use for rocking/bonding time in class. Listen now as the Five Browns, two brothers and three sisters, play this exhiliarating arrangement of the same song, Simple Gifts, recognized from Copland’s Appalachian Spring, combined with the Largo theme from Dvorak’s Symphony No. 9 (from the New World). Enjoy!
Check out the Songspot in the righthand column for yet another enjoyable version!
