If you haven't yet introduced 9/8 meter, or if you want to reinforce 9/8, look no further. Through this beautiful melody by a beloved American songwriter, students can learn that 9/8 is just another way to play three beats per measure. For added support, this arrangement is sprinkled with quotes from two well-known examples of 9/8 meter: Bach's "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring," and Debussy's "Clair de Lune." Comfortably in the key of G, some basic shifting is required of violin 1, cello and bass. Excellent for studying long phrases and interaction between sections of your ensemble.
