The Dessoff Choirs presents two major twentieth century works that focus on early American music and British folksongs. Gregg Smith’s The Continental Harmonist is based on compositions by early American composer, William Billings. The Sprig of Thyme offers a selection of traditional songs of the British Isles, drawing together long-standing favorites as the Willow Song and The Miller of Dee with lesser known gems as O can ye sew cushions and The Sprig of Thyme.
