This haunting, simple melody is ideal for young choirs working on a rubato sense of line and direction. The tune comes from Aland, a Swedish-speaking island of Finland, and is one of the most popular folk tunes in Scandinavia. The addition of strings or recorder adds much to the texture and is highly recommended.
