Triple Choir (SSA, SAT, A/TTB)
This tune comes from The Social Harp, one of more than 100 hymnals published in the United States using shape-note notation. The triple-choir format brings great excitement to an already driving tune. Quite accessible, the piece is filled with dotted rhythms, open fifths, and sporadic claps. Works best if the three choirs can be somewhat separated in the performance hall.
