Two Oriental Folk Songs

Review:      Two well-known melodies from the Orient (Sakura and Arirang), scored for 6 ringers (D5–A6), are suitable for schools, some churches and ideal for spring programs. The arrangement of Sakura, a beautiful Japanese song about cherry blossoms found in school music books and in some hymnals, evokes an oriental flavor; the middle section calls to mind an improvisation on a koto. The melody of Arirang, a Korean song, stands out against a background of open chords. Both Level 2 settings are more effective on bells but will also work for chimes.
