Trad., arr.: Quick: Simple Gifts
Recorded February 2000 at The Chan Centre for the Performing Arts
musica intima has always championed arrangements from within the group - such as this wonderful arrangement of the familiar Shaker Tune. Subtle changes in harmony underneath a consistent pedal in the treble voices create a calming atmosphere, and jazzy crunches bring the arrangement to a satisfying close.
