After combining a beautiful, traditional Irish melody with a fascinating nineteenth-century text, Marilyn Biery then added a relatively simple accompaniment, a straightforward C instrument part, and effective two-part vocal writing to create a synergistic whole! There is some brief SATB divisi near the end of the piece, but the AB parts are completely optional.
