GUEST,T in Oklahoma (Okiemockbird) Can anyone help? - simple vs arranged folksongs (27) RE: Can anyone help? 28 Jan 00


Percy Dearmer did a number of orchestral arrangements of folk melodies. Though some might quibble on the folk status of the Shaker melody "Simple Gifts", comparing this melody to its various arrangements might make the same musical point you are trying to make.
