There are many arrangements of this traditional Shaker song, but this one brings a fresh approach. Simple, American folk elements combine with contemporary, new-age sounds as the beloved melody weaves its way through this arrangement. The unique add-on section provides rhythmic intensity that grows to the end. Outstanding in all voicings, with or without the optional SoundTrax CD.
