GUEST,Dan Singing two songs at the same time. (56* d) RE: Singing two songs at the same time. 31 Dec 18

One of my favorite pairs of partner songs, learned a decade ago with a folk ensemble in New Bedford, Mass., is the anonymous round "Evening Breeze" sung with the chorus to "Wade in the Water." I haven't heard this anywhere else, so I'm including abc notation below.

A footnote to "Solomon Levi" and "The Spanish Cavalier" mentioned upthread: These two songs were published together, in four-part SATB harmony, in _The Golden book of Favorite Songs_ (Minneapolis, 1915/1923/1946: Schmitt, Hall & McNeary) under the title "A Vocal Combat."

T:Evening Breeze
D A A2 | G A D2 | F F E F/E/ | D A A2 |
w:Eve-ning breeze, spi-rit song, Come to me when the day is done,
D A A>A | G A D D/E/ | F F E (D/C/) | D4 |]
w:Mo-ther Earth a-wak-ens me, with the heart beat of the_ sea.

T:Wade in the Water
(D2D/) F D/ | F>(D D2) | (A2 A/) c A/ | d c (A/G/) F |
w:Wade_ in the wat-er,_ Wade_ in the wat-er chil-_dren,
x (D2 D/) F D/ | F>(D D2) | F D/C/ D/ D D/ | (A,C/) (D/ D2) |]
w:Wade_ in the wat-er,_ God's gon-na trou-ble the wat-_ter._
