Simple Gifts

A Shaker song from the 18th Century, also known as " 'Tis the Gift to be Simple."  English songwriter Sydney Carter wrote new lyrics to this traditional Shaker melody in 1963 and named his song "Lord of the Dance."  Here this Shaker tune is performed upon my Hohner musette accordion, a 4/5 reed instrument in LMMM configuration.  The sheet music is from "The Hymn Fake Book" published by Hal Leonard.
