Simple Gifts – Parts


This imaginative arrangement gives winds and percussion various points to shine as well as times to play in instrumental groups. The sonorities are beautiful and perfectly suited to the well-known tune. The first section develops the tune in a lyrical way while the second half is a lively dance in multi-meter. To conclude, the work turns back to the original tranquil spirit. This arrangement would be a fine contrast in a wind program.
