Hard Times, Come Again No More (2008)

HardTimesCoverArt.gifSATB a cappella, with flute or oboe obbligato.

An arrangement of the familiar Stephen Foster song, with a little harmonic “crunch” and a bit of Celtic rhythm.  Uses three of the original verses, sung in a different order.

For some reason, this is my most-performed piece.  Although scored a cappella, piano can generally double parts and cover the obbligato.  When the lower voices have the melody in the second verse, piano can double upper parts and obbligato.
