||"Shepherd’s Song" was written in 2011 by Joe Caploe. This is a lively two mallet marimba solo in 7/8. The right plays an ostinato throughout most of the piece and the left hand plays the melody. This presents a challenge in the balance between right and left hand since the left hand hand has the melody. "Shepherd’s Song" is a great program piece for a recital. Easy./Int. level. Also available as a PDF.
