Little River (harp and choir)


Willi Maerz has arranged the popular Chinese folk song “Little River” for four pedal harps and choir (SATB). Maerz explains that the story tells of “two lovers separated by a river. The girl pleads to the moon to deliver her calls and yearning to her lover.” The song is a wonderful example of the great beauty and expressiveness found in many folk songs.
