William Blake's poem dances with joy. A dramatic piano, a lofty flute, along with a rhythmic tambourine, join the voices to bring this text to brilliant life. A children's chorus could partake singing the unison laughing theme that opens the piece and reoccurs along the way amidst the story telling of the SATB choir. Flute and Treble parts available as a free download from the publisher's website.
