Partner in thanks! This charming anthem partners the 19th century American folk hymn, 'Tis the Gift to Be Simple, with the universal doxology, Praise God, from Whom All Blessings Flow. The inventive accompaniment provides delightful commentary upon the text as the choir sings, first in canon with the folk hymn and, finally, in partnership with the two tunes. Quickly and easily prepared!
