This dynamic arrangement is based on Mahalia Jackson’s version that she created in the 1950’s. This traditional spiritual has themes of home, journey, and trial and would make a wonderful concert closer! The piano part requires an excellent accompanist as it is very rhythmic with a catchy Afro-Cuban best. The addition of a drum could be considered for a performance. The arranger, Dr. Anthony Trecek-King is President and Artistic Director of the award-winning Boston Children’s Choir.
