Arrangement Note: This version starts an octave higher than commonly written and descends to "Shenandoah" which is more convenient for our flute with their limited range of pitches. Historically, the eariest versions of this melody, known as "Shananadore", also began this way. Instead of keeping to the 6/8 or 12/8 time of these earlier versions, this arrangement simplifies the melody to 4/4 time and provides places for the player to breath.
