From Plank Road Publishing

arr. Paul Jennings

Starting as a Shaker dance song, the great American composer Aaron Copland used this tune in his Appalachian Spring ballet written for Martha Graham's dance troupe in 1944. Full of contrasts, our arrangement features soprano recorder 1 (D,F#,G,A,B,C,D'), an optional easier soprano 2 (D,G,A,B), and an alto recorder part suitable for a young player (G,A,C,D,E,G'). This arrangement is created so that you can use all or any combination of recorder parts and still sound great with our well-designed recording. (from Music K-8, Vol. 29, No. 2)
