I have yet to launch this music at my choir, which is a small, unsophisticated but ambitious group of mature, amateur voices. We sing mainly for our own pleasure as a social event, with the occasional "performance" to assist with cost of the music. This gospel song is a capella, so it also alleviates the issue of finding an accompanist. The melody is simple but, in true King's Singers fashion there are chances for soloists as well as the normal SATB. Challenging but achievable. Ability to read music is an asset, but it can be taught to non-readers with a bit of note bashing (as in our choir).
