Bound for the Promised Land by Leavitt is a wonderful setting of an old Appalachian song – perfect for any high school choir. The vocal parts are mostly doubled SATB with some independent lines found during the key change. Choirs can perform this song in multiple voicings including SAB and SSA – use what works best for your ensemble. This song can be performed with piano alone or with piano and solo violin, or even better with a string ensemble.
