This is the traditional arrangement that dates back to 1946 and the Delta Rhythm Boys. Though filled with tongue-in-cheek humor with all the percussion clicks and clacks to represent the various bones, this setting makes the text from Ezekiel come alive. The choral parts are fairly straight forward – once you get used to modulating every two measures! The percussion parts are not difficult, but be sure to allow some extra time for laughter during rehearsal. We left out the joyful shouting at the end with no ill effect.
