The rich heritage of musical Americana is delightfully presented in three contrasting movements based on traditional folk songs from the Southern Appalachian Mountains. "At the Foot of Yonder Mountain" (G major), a beautiful pentatonic love ballad, is followed by the tender lullaby, "All the Pretty Little Horses" (E minor). A rollicking fiddle tune, "Sourwood Mountain" (G major), brings the work to a rousing close. Folk song tunes are distributed throughout all parts, giving everyone from Violin I down to String Bass a chance to shine on the melody. (5:30)
