Subject: Chord Req: Simple Gifts -Looking for an arrangement
I'm looking for a rather complicated arrangement of Simple Gifts. We did it in 1999 at Shasta Community College in Redding CA. Now I'd love to find the same arrangement for out Chorus here.

The sopranos lead out with
"Tis a gift to be simple (altos come in, in round style, then tenors then Basses)

It's all very pretty round type style changing some rhythms and notes around until partway through where there is an outstanding soprano solo line, and then total organized chaos and then the final line in unison rhythm-wise but lovely harmony at the end...

It's the best I can do to describe it...lets just say it was fun, gorgeous, and anything BUT "Simple" lol I have a cassette recording, but without the copy I purchased then (I tended to purchase all my copies of college choir music from the director - lost an entire file cabinet in a flood)I can't remember who arranged it.
