Aaron CoplandOne of the many things that Aaron Copland did was to preserve many of America’s original music. Copland’s ballet “Appalachian Spring” includes a Shaker hymn “Simple Gifts” and he also included cowboy songs in “Rodeo.” What benefits do you think Copland gave us using America’s historical music within his new pieces? Think about the impact on our current music with the preservation of our historic music? Do you think it helped our music or not?
