This jubilant “new” spiritual is effervescent with hope and joy and married to the traditional Go Tell It On The Mountain. The effect is electric! The call and response format juxtaposes a tenor solo with a rhythmic reply from the choir. The optional hand drum adds character and the vocal parts are easily achieved. Great world music “vibe!” Optional hand drum part included. Duration: ca. 1:42.
