Three Shaker Songs draws its text from anonymous Shakers of the 19th century. The music reflects the very direct meddage of the texts: the joyous riddance of Old ugly (the Devil); a self-admonition not to be cross, sharp-tongued or willful; and an invitation to participate fully in life. The music does not use Shaker tunes, but is recognizably American in its rhythmic syncopations. Contents: 1. Be Joyful · 2. The Shameful Three · 3. Wake Up.
