I remember Alice Parker teaching us, “Great melodies create great voices.” I sure like this setting of this epic melody. There are other great settings of this tune (I also recommend the setting by René Clausen). The elegant piano accompaniment gently supports and echoes the smooth vocal lines in this expressive and lyrical folk song setting.
