Arranged for 3-Part Mixed choir by Roger Emerson, this driving spiritual is placed in a well-crafted setting for younger choirs. An excellent choice for beginning ensembles. Also available for 2-Part choir. Performance Time: Approx. 2:30.
This is a fairly easy, yet effective, arrangement of this well known spiritual. I like the slow imitative opening between the two parts, leading into the up-tempo main section. Most of the writing is in unison which makes it fairly easy to learn, although the rhythm for the men in the final section is quite difficult with regard to keeping in time with the melody in the upper part.
