American Folksong Suite
This fun suite includes the tunes "Hush, Little Baby", Shenandoah", "Black is the Color of My True Love's Hair", and "Turkey in the Straw". All the pieces are short; the last ("Turkey in the Straw") is written on three staves and includes handclaps. Tempos differ greatly, from "slowly" to "lively". Minimal techniques are required. This secular suite would suit a summer or school performance.
