Today's multicultural awareness makes this well-known Japanese folk song a good bet for any concert program. Michael's haunting setting opens with a Japanese text, moves to an English translation and back to Japanese for the ending. It's easy to sing and a pronunciation guide is provided.

    Michael Scott writes a simple, fitting piano part and equally elegant vocal harmonies for this ageless song. Harmonic lines begin in unison with the melody so that beginners can get a solid start on their counter melodies.
