Title: Small Lemon Tree: a folksong from Epiros, Greece for two voices, oboe, cello, and piano: written for Thomas and Olga Tamvakos

Abstract: “Small Lemon Tree” is a folk song from Epiros, a small, mountainous province in northwestern Greece. The title, “Small Lemon Tree,” has a symbolic meaning, for as the juice of the lemon is sour, so is the love of the one portrayed in the song. A simple emotional appeal is achieved through the simplest of musical means--a melody of only four pitches, constantly repeated. Greek folk songs are traditionally accompanied by violin, clarinet, and lute. Included in Music for the High School Chorus by J. H. Niblock, p. 336 (1967).
