Little Brother, Big Sisters

The title refers to how my kids relate to one another as siblings. I used the E minor key for this as I wanted the C naturals. In my mind’s ear, the tune suggests somewhat modal harmonies, though I leave any and all of this to the performer’s interpretation.

Lovely Tune!

Variation with a bit of polyrythm:
: Bed BA cB ed | ~g3 f2d edB

Thank you, swisspiper. I like your polyrythmic variation and will use it in performance.
