arr. Teresa Jennings

We have had a number of requests to do an arrangement of this beautiful folk song. The story goes that Shenandoah was an Indian Chief whose daughter was loved by a white man. Not wishing to deceive the chief, the white man declared his love openly for the maiden, hence the song.

Our arrangement of the song begins and ends with a soloist. A second soloist joins in shortly after the beginning to complete the first time through the song. Then, the entire ensemble enters, divided into three parts. You will note that part 3 is written in bass clef for your changing, changed, and lower voices. As always, all parts are optional. Even the solos can be sung by groups or alternating soloist or the entire ensemble. Your singers combined with the gorgeous orchestration on the Performance/Accompaniment recordings will make for a very wonderful, heartfelt moment. (from Music K-8, Vol. 12, No. 1)
