This Czech folk tune is a lot of fun, especially at the end where the rhythm gets tricky. If your tenors are better at offbeats than your baritones you might consider having the baritones join the basses on the melody and using the tenors on the after beats. My choirs generally save the big yell “hey” for the very end and flush the ones inside the piece. The slow verses with solo and chorus accompaniment alternate with very fast loud and soft choruses.
