      Nice piece of music for two voices. Very easy to learn and happy sounding too. Definitely would recommend.

      As an amateur alto, I needed a 2-part arrangement of this familiar song urgently to perform 10 days after ordering. The arrangement suited my needs perfectly and the music arrived within a couple of days. Thank you!
