Down To The River To Pray is an Appalachian-flavoured gospel song perfect for use all year long. With its transparent harmonies and rich vocal textures, this arrangement captures the spirit of a simple, heartfelt plea for renewal.
Many choirs have requested the music from this moving scene from the film O Brother, Where Art Thou?. This traditional song has been skilfully arranged here for SATB choir with Piano accompaniment, by Sheldon Curry.
Nice arrangement and very easy to sing. Our small group picked it up very quickly! Anonymous

A spiritual type song - really good fun and easy to learn for a mixed ability choir. You can ring the changes by having solos or small ensembles in some verses. Anonymous

Having heard Katherine Jenkins sing this on CD, I found myself continually singing this particular song over and over. It is fairly easy to learn but time need to be given to style etc. to really capture the fullness and appeal of this song. Anonymous
