SATB choir, optional piano
No. 2 from "Four Louisiana Creole Folk Songs". Composed by Louis Reichwein. Secular. Octavo. Duration 1 minute, 15 seconds. Published by E.C. Schirmer Publishing (EC.5881).

Item Number: EC.5881

Text: Slave Songs of the US (1867).

The chorus comments how vain and insolent "Mister Banjo" is, with his cocked hat and walking stick. The music is appropriately jaunty and the piano part (which is optional) gives just the right pluck here and there. For an accomplished and agile group that can handle SSAATTBB divisi. Creole text with the composer's singable English translation below.
