This 2-part arrangement of a traditional English folk song is in a relaxed jazz style that introduces young TB singers to swing rhythms, syncopation, and simple scat singing. A soloist or small group of singers are featured in the middle of the piece. Repeated melodic and harmonic ideas will make this a great piece for young or developing young TB choirs! Teaching the chorus of this piece first would allow the students to feel successful while easily recognizing familiar material. Be careful of slight changes to the rhythms on each verse–melodic and harmonic components stay the same, but rhythms change to fit changes to lyrics.
