High voice, alto recorder (or flute)
Arrangement of the Shaker tune
Written at the request of recorder virtuosa Cléa Galhano for a benefit, this arrangement of Simple Gifts was performed by Ms. Galhano with soprano Maria Jette. I was a recorder player as a teenager, so it was fun to return to the instrument.
For a grander treatment of this tune, see Variations on Simple Gifts.
