Wade in the Water arranged by Mark Hayes. Choir Sacred. SATB choir. Choral Octavo. Choral Designs. Sacred; Spiritual. Choral Octavo. 12 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.5810).
A superb choral arrangement of a classic spiritual. This work opens with a choral fanfare-like section and progresses through several swinging sections to a climactic finish. This is Mark Hayes at his very best. Many opportunities for brief solos. And the optional instrumental accompaniment (or SoundTrax CD) is outstanding.
Inst. Parts Available (choral); Recorded Acc. Available.
