This is the central movement of Angel of Light, a cantata based on Shaker themes. A dancing and playful rhythmic ride, it is ideal as a light-hearted opening or closing piece. The text dates from 1844 and is a lovely example of a Shaker dance song. The vocal sounds represent a uniquely American form of "mouth music"- a style of traditional singing where nonsense words are used to mimic the sounds of instruments or the rhythms of a dance.
