This beautiful American folk song in SATB voicing combines repeated patterns and countermelodies to create love’s passionate contemplation. The accompaniment assists the melody in moving along with energy toward the apex of the piece … when you and I shall be as one. Students will learn to sing the phrases with proper syllabic inflection and emotion. The style and tempo of the melody provide an opportunity for emphasis in tone quality and intonation. “Americana” comes to you and your students from the Appalachian Region.
