Shaker Dance - arranged by Brad Holmes

Image of Shaker Dance - arranged by Brad Holmes


This skipping 6/8 Shaker melody is found in historical sources without text. The arranger has provided syllables which may be altered as a choir envisions what kind of event this tune might have enhanced (work song?, barn dance?). The playful melody affords opportunities for mild staging and solos offer the chance to create characters. A great 'palette cleanser' or encore.
