Originally created as a duet (Soprano and Tenor), this arrangement for 2-part mixed voices relies on the piano accompaniment for harmony and counterpoint. Most of the choral part is an easy-to-learn unison melody, with a bit of harmonic texture toward the end of the piece.

  1. I like this arrangement a lot. I am a fairly new choir director and it is simple to conduct, and very pretty. The ward loved it!
