Don't even think about missing this exuberant concert/festival winner! Snippets of various spirituals are creatively interspersed throughout several verses and key changes of "Down by the Riverside." Featured are Get On Board, Little Children; I Got a Robe; Every Time I Feel the Spirit; All Night, All Day; Jacob's Ladder; Ain't That Good News; I'm Gonna Sing and Great Day. Culminating with several juxtaposed spirituals in a 12 bar finale, complete with hand clapping, this exciting selection is destined to become a classic in choral repertoire.
