Ms. Shields was inspired to arrange this piece from the Parker- Shaw SATB setting. The piece begins in unison with the altos and second sopranos continuing on the melody and the first sopranos coming in with a Iyrical counter melody. The texture thickens as the song continues. It should be sung playfully with energy and a dancelike quality. Castanets, tambourines and drums can be added. This is part of the Cora Scholz series.
