I really believe in singing canons at the middle level and this one is sophisticated enough to be a concert piece. Canons are a great vehicle for teaching unison singing, phrasing, vowels, and musicianship. Though the melody is easily learned, the piece sounds complicated in how the phrases intricately fit together when sung in canon.
