Shenandoah's Simple Gifts by Larry Clark. Concert Band. For Concert Band. Carl Fischer Symphonic Performance Series. Grade 4. Score and Set of Parts. Duration 5:08. Published by Carl Fischer (CF.SPS32).
Two of the most popular American folk songs are ingeniously combined in this outstanding setting by composer Larry Clark. It begins with the gentle flow of the river, followed by full statements of folk songs "Shenandoah" and "Simple Gifts." A brass cascade leads into a marvelous buildup to the climax of the piece, where both songs are heard simultaneously. Shenandoah's Simple Gifts has all the makings to become part of the standard reportoire.
