Red River Valley

From Plank Road Publishing

arr. & adapted by M.C. Handel

We are pleased to bring you this great old folk song in a very versatile setting. Because it works well for either voice or recorder in the key of G, we have recorded it both ways for you. For the recorder setting, we have included an optional second part. This is a nice song for introducing the note F#. Though if you choose not to use this note, you can alter the melody a little by substituting A or low D for the F#. (Low D, E, G, A, B, C, D. OPT. PT. 2 Low D, E, F#, G, A, B.)

For a vocal setting, consider altering the second part for more harmonic interest. It was written simply with the beginning recorder players in mind, but it can be adapted to include more sophistication. (from Music K-8, Vol. 14, No. 5)
