Based on the ever-popular folk song "Simple Gifts," this beautiful setting has been created through the use of only six different notes. Swearingen's ability to make a band sound mature beyond their years is a talent that we've all come to appreciate. You can be certain that audiences of all ages will be deeply touched by this highly expressive work. Simply breathtaking!
