Dwyer and Ellis have taken this lovely song and have combined the familiar canonic treatment with 2 ostinato that become independent vocal lines supporting the melody. The two-part round may be sung in three parts with minor adjustments to the accompaniment. The part writing is logical and manageable with youngsters who are gaining more part singing skill. Some of the harmonies in the keyboard are a bit unusual and interesting. A flowing part for cello is an excellent addition.
