Aaron Copland's quintet from "The Tender Land" translates beautifully into this setting for combined chorus with band! Although it makes a perfect choice for Thanksgiving, the wonderful vocal lines make it a magnificent showpiece any time of year. The SATB choral part can stand alone, and offers a piano 4 hands accompaniment. The optional concert band accompaniment is at the medium level and requires the choral part for performance. It's a fantastic way to program music by a great American composer!
