Shall We Gather at the River never sounded so inviting and so pleasant than is does in this thoughtful rendition. Flowing harmonies and tender phrasing accentuate the melody so carefully crafted through the skillful use of handbells, handchimes and cello. The cello is not optional, although any C instrument may be substituted.
