        This arrangement is good musically, capturing the style of the song perfectly.
        Most of the time to create this SAB setting, the bass part has been omitted from the SATB version and all the men sing the tenor line of the SATB setting. Whilst this works musically, it makes the line high for basses. Most small choirs actually lack tenors, not basses. Also the ladies split into 3 (SSA), admittedly only for 3 notes, but as most choirs choose this arrangement to suite small choirs, this could be a disadvantage.

        Beautiful arrangement of the song, although slightly different from the well known version.
        It was not something we didn't like, but the arrangement has caused some problems for singers who still want to deviate to the well known version.

        Not too difficult but effective nonetheless

        A gentle arrangement for average choirs. Many choirs don't have tenors so good to have three parts although the basses in my choir complained at some of the higher pitches. The piano accompaniment is effective and this version will join our repertoire.
