** Stanton's Staff Selection - 2005 **
Folk songs are an important part of our musical heritage as well as the curriculum and these settings don't disappoint.  Black is the Color of My True Love's Hair is a flowing, melodic setting with an 8th note counterpoint beginning on the "and" of 1; Sourwood Mountain is in a 2 feel with 8th and 16th note patterns; and Simple Gifts harkens to the Copland setting from Appalachian Spring (a great chance to introduce the original).  A very nice rendition for young players. (2:30)
