This richly scored tapestry of popular American folksongs is set in overture style, with the songs featured both separately and together in clever counterpoint. At less than five minutes' duration, this folksong jubilee spans a wide range of emotions and styles. The concert band accompaniment is easily playable by middle school, high school, or community ensembles. Contents: Ching a Ring Chaw; Swing Low, Sweet Chariot; I'm Goin' Away; Cindy; Shenandoah; Red River Valley; When the Saints Go Marching In and Good Night, Ladies. Highly recommended!
