    In yonder valley there flows sweet union;

    The turtle dove is in our land.
    In yonder valley there flows sweet union;
    Let us arise, and drink our fill.

    Simple Gifts is a Shaker song written and composed in 1848 by Elder Joseph Brackett.
    It has endured many inaccurate descriptions. Though often classified as an anonymous Shaker hymn or as a work song, it is better classified as a dance song.

    The tune was written by Joseph Brackett (1797–1882) in 1848.[2] Brackett, a lifelong resident of Maine, first joined the Shakers at Gorham, Maine, when his father's farm helped to form the nucleus of a new Shaker settlement.[3]
    Resurgence and enduring popularity[edit]

    Songs of America - Simple Gifts - Shaker Hymn, 1:40, Cibertracker Imperium
    I Danced in the Morning (LORD OF THE DANCE), 3:55, First-Plymouth Church Lincoln Nebraska-Videos
    The song was largely unknown outside Shaker communities until Aaron Copland used its melody for the score of Martha Graham's ballet Appalachian Spring (Shakers once worshipped on Holy Mount, in the Appalachians), first performed in 1944. Copland used Simple Gifts a second time in 1950 in his first set of Old American Songs for voice and piano, which was later orchestrated. Many people thought that the tune of Simple Gifts was a traditional Celtic one but both the music and original lyrics are actually the compositions of Brackett. Simple Gifts has been adapted or arranged many times since by folksingers and composers.[4]
    Lyrics[edit]
    Simple Gifts was written by Elder Joseph while he was at the Shaker community in Alfred, Maine. These are the lyrics to his one-verse song:
    'Tis the gift to be simple, 'tis the gift to be free
    'Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be,
    And when we find ourselves in the place just right,
    'Twill be in the valley of love and delight.
    When true simplicity is gained,
    To bow and to bend we shan't be ashamed,
    To turn, turn will be our delight,
    Till by turning, turning we come 'round right.[5]
    Several Shaker manuscripts indicate that this is a Dancing Song or a Quick Dance. Turning is a common theme in Christian theology, but the references to turning in the last two lines have also been identified as dance instructions.[1] When the traditional dance is performed properly, each dancer ends up where he or she began, come 'round right.

    Video scenes taken from:
    Simple Gifts by Aaron Copeland Carnegie Hall Centennial Gala, 1991

    Lyrics:
    'Tis the gift to be simple, 'tis the gift to be free
    'Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be,
    And when we find ourselves in the place just right,
    'Twill be in the valley of love and delight.

    When true simplicity is gain'd,
    To bow and to bend we shan't be asham'd,
    To turn, turn will be our delight,
    Till by turning, turning we come 'round right.

    Simple Gifts is a Shaker song written and composed in 1848 by Elder Joseph Brackett.

    The song was largely unknown outside Shaker communities until Aaron Copland used its melody for the score of Martha Graham's ballet Appalachian Spring, first performed in 1944. Copland used Simple Gifts a second time in 1950 in his first set of Old American Songs for voice and piano, which was later orchestrated. Many people thought that the tune of Simple Gifts was a traditional Celtic one but both the music and original lyrics are actually the compositions of Brackett. Simple Gifts has been adapted or arranged many times since by folksingers and composers.

    One of the numerous religious sects who emigrated to American shores in search of religious freedom, the Shakers followed Mother Ann Lee to the United States in 1774. Here they established several colonies-- the first in 1776 at Nikayuna near Albany, NY--whose governing principals included celibacy and agrarian communal living.

    The term Shakers, originally used as a pejorative for members of a dissenting Quaker church which called itself the United Society of Believers in Christ's Second Appearing, referred to the sect's ecstatic form of worship. Founded in England in 1747 the Shakers practiced a religion that was also a lifestyle. The members lived in gender segregated, dormitory-like housing, but came together to work, and pray. Like the Quakers they believed in personal communication with a God who was both male and female and in the ability to find and give voice to the Inner Light. Those expressions took the form of hymns and work songs, of which SIMPLE GIFTS is the most famous, as well as rhythmic swaying and dancing when the spirit moved them.

    Besides leading a simple but comfortably self-sufficient existence from the fruits of their land, the Shakers came to be known for their architecture, crafts, and furniture. Shaker design, with its clean, economic lines, is the quintessential statement of the happy marriage of form and function--a tangible embodiment of the Shaker credo: Beauty rests on utility.

    Except for Mother Ann's missionary trips to win converts and their cottage industries in which they sold furniture and crafts to their neighbors, the Shakers consciously insulated themselves from the rest of the world. At their peak they boasted eighteen communities in New York, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Maine, Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky, one of the largest of which was 300 strong. The Shakers flourished into 20th century when celibacy took its toll on the sect, and their numbers dwindled to near extinction. One of the last of the proud villages to close was The City of Peace, or Hancock Village near Pittsfield, MA, which became a ghost town in 1960 when the last of its inhabitants moved away. The village stands today as a museum and monument to the simplicity and integrity of the Shaker tradition and its continuing influence on American folk art and aesthetics.

    The traditional Shaker work-song-hymn, SIMPLE GIFTS was originally published in THE GIFT TO BE SIMPLE: SHAKER RITUALS AND SONGS. Since then this folk tune has acquired the status of an American classic. One of its most famous permutations is to be found in Aaron Copland's vocal arrangement and in his variations on the tune which conclude his ballet, APPALACHIAN SPRING. Its rondo-like form combines the stomping pulses of work, with the swaying rhythms of the Shaker dancing prayer.

    Story behind the song:

    Jon Schmidt and Steven Sharp Nelson were booked for a Piano Guys show in Hawaii. How could we resist filming our next video in the land of Aloha -- beautiful beaches, green mountains, and fresh pineapple?? We went to our Founders and Facebook fans to ask what song they wanted us to play there. Somewhere Over the Rainbow was the nearly-unanimous response. But you know how we are ... we couldn't just do this tune by itself...so in the studio we found a made-in-heaven matchup in the timeless melody from the Shaker Hymn Simple Gifts written in the 1800's (also used by Aaron Copland in his Ballet Appalachian Spring). We feel it's an especially appropriate mash-up because of our profound love and respect for the Hawaiian culture -- a people who are so good at finding happiness in simplicity. As you probably could hear we borrowed a lot of ideas from Iz's version which has become the stuff of legend. This arrangement is, in part, a tribute to him.

    Getting a piano onto a sandy beach and then onto a big hill in a famous ranch within the SAME day (we only had 8 hours to film) was no small feat. The only thing harder would be to be predict Hawaiian weather, which ended up being our biggest challenge.

    We had a little extra help on this one. My mother, Lynne Sanders Nelson -- a main source of my inspiration for pursuing music -- passed away early in life from the effects of a brain tumor. She was an incredibly-gifted musician and taught me to play music passionately rather than just playing 'notes' on a page. 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow' was one of her favorite songs. We finished this arrangement on what would have been her 70th birthday. Somehow she helped. I miss her so very much, but when I play songs like this I feel like I get to be with her again. This song is dedicated to her.
    -Steven Sharp Nelson

    Thank you so much to the Kualoa Ranch who bent over backwards last-minute for us and provided us such a beautiful place to shoot. Visit their site at -- when you visit Hawaii be sure to stop by and take a tour -- its where dozens of huge blockbluster movies/tv shows have been filmed.

    And when we find ourselves in the place just right,
    Will be in the valley of love and delight.

    When true simplicity is gained,
    To bow and to bend, we will not be ashamed,
    To turn, turn, will be our delight,
    Till by turning, turning we come round right

    'Tis the gift to be simple, Its a gift to be free,
    'Tis the gift to come down where you ought to be,
    And when we find ourselves in the place just right,
    Will be in the valley of love and delight.

    When true simplicity is gained,
    To bow and to bend, we will not be ashamed,
    To turn, turn, will be our delight,
    Till by turning, turning we come round right
    Till by turning, turning we come round right
