The Six Songs of Early Canada are arranged both historically and geographically, moving across Canada from sea to sea.  Together they truly represent the wealth and variety of Canda’s rich folksong heritage.

Savory, Sage, Rosemary, and Thyme: This final lively and vivacious folksong came to British Columbia from England.  In it a girl requests three things of her suitor before he can be her true love, and he, not to be outdone, likewise asks three things of her.  This piece is available for ssa (W-07f), satb (S-54f), and sab (S-74f).
