Beautiful poetry shapes this folk melody which has become a favorite in the United States. This unforgettable melody can be sung in either Swedish or English, and demands a sensitive treatment of each vocal line. The challenge will be in shaping each melody and in tuning the measures which precede each cadence. Once learned, this is a piece children ask to sing again and again.
