This bluesy spritual is a favorite of the choir. The men’s section is featured throughout. Range considerations are for the bass E-flat and D. The bulk of this arrangement is four-part men and three-part women, therefore the choir needs to be sufficiently large and the singers secure enough to allow for part division. The stressed syllables create a rhythmic feel and the women’s descant adds interest. The use of accompaniment instruments ensures a stylistic performance.
