Two-part treble choir, piano (Two-part treble choir )
Edited by Judith Willoughby. Arranged by Melissa Roth. Alliance Music Publications #AMP 0624. Published by Alliance Music Publications (AN.AMP-0624).

Item Number: AN.AMP-0624



This charming Basque lullaby consists of a melody in two verses with a gentle refrain and is built on a diatonic scale, ascending and descending by step and small skip. The harmony in the second verse derives from the melody and is well prepared. The harmony in verse 3 emerges from a straightforward two-part canon based upon verse one (with a minor adjustment to the canon in part I, bar 62). The rocking piano accompaniment enhances the sense of comfort inherent in this folksong. This piece is ideal for beginning choruses or for any two-part treble ensemble that wishes to program a short work with immediate and heartfelt appeal.

The Basques are an ancient culture of people who have lived in the western Pyrenees Mountains, along the Bay of Biscay in modern day Spain and France for thousands of years. The Basque homeland includes the Spanish provinces of Navarra, Viscaya, Alava, and Guipuzcoa and the French provinces of Labourd, Soule, and Basse Navarre. The Basque people predate the migration of Indo-European tribes who later developed into modern Europeans. The Basque people have managed to preserve their culture despite many conquests.
