Simple Gifts is a beautiful rendition of the well-known Shaker melody for late elementary piano duet (1 piano/4 hands). A steady accompaniment of harmonic 5ths supports the elegant melody as it moves from Primo to Secondo, leading to an engaging canon in the second half. This piece appeals to all ages and is really lovely to listen to. One copy required for performance. Number of pages: 4. Approx. Level 3.
This duet is perfect for you if you want:
- a traditional melody arranged in a fresh new way
- a mellow, laid-back ensemble piece
- motivating material for any age student
- a beautiful performance piece
- an approachable duet with a singable melody
Simple Gifts was my first publication with Debra Wanless Music. I was so excited to publish this duet and I really love how it turned out. From the beautiful cover to the lovely engraving, this piece will not disappoint you. If you are looking for a timeless arrangement of one of your favourite melodies, Simple Gifts is for you!
