Take Me Back (A New American Folk Song) - SATB, piano
This original folk song written in a style similar to Skip to My Lou and Bile Them Cabbage Down is a look back at our musical past. In a world of disconnectedness, people are looking for ways to connect. This song looks back at a time when people came together to sing and tell stories. By learning from our past, we can learn how to negotiate the future.
This song makes a great concert opener or closer! It is a raucous, galloping good time set for SATB choir and piano. The piece is also available for chorus and full orchestra (available here: https://www.sheetmusicplus.com/title/21412551). Written for a high school choir, the piece has also been performed by the University of Washington Chorale and the Ensign Symphony & Chorus in Seattle, WA.
