This folk song favorite has been cleverly arranged in a two-part round style. The women have the descant while the men have the melody. The a cappella section at measure 32 creates interest and can be a tongue twister of sorts. Range and tessitura are modest and the rhythms align logically with the beat. Choreography or staging could be used to enhance the performance.
