At the end of Willem Lang's commentary "Simple Gifts," the Shaker song "'twas a gift to be simple" was played. It was simply beautiful. What was the singer's name and the album it was from?
The version of "Simple Gifts" you heard was by the cellist Yo Yo Ma with
vocals by Allison Krauss.
You can find it on the CD "Classic Yo Yo".
I hope you enjoyed it.
