This dance-like Renaissance style setting for krummhorns (you can substitute organ reeds, of course), recorder, and tambourine may be used as a unison or four-part choir setting. All instrumental parts are optional. The rhythmic energy is quite infectious, making this song a joy to learn for all ages. Not difficult and definitely a positive experience for your choir!
Voicing: Unison or SATB choir, organ, and optional recorder and percussion
Composer: Giovanni Giacomo Gastoldi (c. 1556-1622)
