Music and dance were an integral part of Shaker worship services. Michael Story has crafted this two-movement mini-suite paying homage to these historical charismatic tunes, including "Simple Gifts" and "Pretty Home." With a variety of teaching opportunities, dramatic dynamic contrasts bring these tunes to life. A melodic choice to develop musicality! This title is available in SmartMusic.
