Cover Dancing Tree [level: Easy]
Nancy Gifford
voicing: SA | catalog number: SBMP 814 | duration: 2:10 | price: $2.10
accompaniment: piano
Dancing Tree is a fanciful and exuberantly happy piece for young voices. The verse begins, In my garden grows a tree Dances day and night for me, Four in a bar and sometimes three, To music secret as can be. Taking its cues from this simple but inspired poetry, the piece alternates between duple and triple meters, with light waltzing sections, a Latin dance, and finally a grand valse. Three lyrical melodies are woven together throughout the piece; they are sung separately, in pairs, and all together at the end. In between, a sprightly theme in minor mode appears, accompanied by syncopated rhythms in the piano and flute. All in all, fun to sing, and delightful to hear.
