Simple Gifts has been sung to numerous different lyrics (particularly Sydney Carter's 1960s hymn Lord of the Dance) and the tune is very well known, thanks to its use in Aaron Copland's score for the ballet Appalachian Spring, first performed in 1944. Elder Joseph Brackett -- a Shaker from Maine -- originally wrote it as a "dancing song" in 1848.

Faber Choral Singles offer a series of beautifully crafted arrangements in a diversity of musical styles for today's choirs. From Broadway, pop and folk to spirituals, gospel and original works, the Faber Choral Singles series guarantees the perfect repertoire for every occasion.
