American Folk Suite for Soprano and Flute by Cherise D. Leiter
I. Fair and Tender Ladies
II. Whistle, Daughter, Whistle
III. The Housewife's Lament/Single Girl
IV. Johnny Has Gone for a Soldier
American Folk Suite is a five-movement set of six folk songs each with ties to the early American experience. Their stories are told from a very female point of view and deal with aspects of love, although not necessarily always the pleasant sides of love.
