Simple Gifts (w/ Bethan)

Tis the gift to be simple, 'tis the gift to be free
'Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be,
And when we find ourselves in the place just right,

    'Twill be in the valley of love and delight.

When true simplicity is gain'd,

    To bow and to bend we shan't be asham'd,

To turn, turn will be our delight,

    Till by turning, turning we come 'round right.

Tis the gift to be simple, 'tis the gift to be free
'Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be,
And when we find ourselves in the place just right,

    'Twill be in the valley of love and delight.

Arrangement Aaron Copland. I am so happy Bethan decided to take on this project! Technically the goal was to attempt to put Bethan “into the orchestra”. I think that goal was met fairly well. I would be interested in your opinion on meeting that goal as well.

Your music is lovely Chris, most ecclesiastical,
and I think you have mixed the vocal in very well.
It sounds completely natural.
