This highly syncopated, cleverly arranged spiritual makes a prefect bright concert opener or ending. The driving percussive alto part subtly shifts rhythm patterns as the first and second soprano parts form a duet of easily attainable harmonies. Although suitable for an advanced junior high chorus, there are ample challenges in this a cappella work to engage an upper level high school ensemble. Highly recommended!
