Product Details


Greg suggests performing his moody setting of the enduring folk song “with longing and mystery”---a fitting approach for this creative re-harmonization. A hushed layering of the first four melodic notes provides the gentle introduction and pensive closing for this uniquely wistful arrangement. Rich choral sonorities, with just a touch of dissonance, emerge when the piece arrives at its “love is handsome” peak.
