This beautiful spiritual begins in a free rubato style and, after a rallentando and a long hold, it settles into a fast tempo in cut time. The women’s voices are in three-part divisi throughout and sometimes the men’s voices are, too. This piece was performed by the Two-Year College Honor Choir at the National Convention in Miami this past March. It was splendid to listen to and my students said it was a “blast” to sing.
