From a plaintive and prayerful opening in solo violin, this arrangement by Jason Krug of a well-known spiritual builds in power and emotion with each successive verse. The melody passes between voices, and frequent and varied countermelodies are employed throughout, providing ensembles the chance to work on balance of parts. One key change, from G to D, should pose little difficulty.
A rich and nuanced selection to challenge your ensemble's musicality!
