The English rhyme, Sing a Song of Six Pence is the basis for 6Pence. The original choral work bears the dedication: "For my mother, Josephine, in celebration of her ever-present, always irreverent sense of humor!" Following an opening statement of the familiar verse using Schoenberg's sprechstimme, the pianists begin a romping, crazy version of the familiar nursery rhyme tune which includes excerpts from Mozart's "Marriage of Figaro" and a Berkey "frenzy" on the piano. Ballet dancers may be added to increase the fun and merriment!
