This is why I listen to music.  A personal connection is I live on Yo Yo Ma Lane  in Toronto.  He sponsored the music garden across from our place and came and played at the opening.  I also adore Ms. Kraus.

My first listen to this. Immediately caught my ear,  recognized Allison, a voice of true beauty in itself,  then I checked the song info, Yo Yo Ma! What a magnificent pairing!

TY RP, I have learned something new today.  I'd thought this was an original Copeland tune.  (assist to Wikipedia)

Bill, I know in the world of radio, silence is not golden, but you need a second or two of it after this song to let it reverberate in your soul.

On a whim, I stopped at Canterbury Shaker Village in New Hampshire.  The grizzled old tour guide led us to the Meeting House, where he described Shaker worship, which was mostly communal dancing and singing.  He took his place over one of the little wood markers inlaid in the wide floor. Then he sang this song and did the accompanying dance.  It was so joyous I wanted him to teach me, then we could do it together.  Just didn't have the guts to speak up.
Shakers were unique to the day.  Pacifist, communal, industrious, rigorous equality of the sexes, simple, successful.  They invented the washing machine.  Go Shakers!

I thought this was rather boring until I really listened to Yo-Yo Ma's playing.  Simple Gifts is just kind of a tired old song to me, but wow, that was well done.
