David Eddleman has crafted an excellent new arrangement of this timeless classic, adding lively descant ornaments in the soprano part and vocally percussive lines in the bass part. Recorded by a diverse group including Elvis Presley, Louis Armstrong and Van Morrison, "Down by the Riverside" is a spiritual with a long history. Certainly known in Civil War times, it is thought the "ain't goin' to study war no more" lyrics were added at that time. A colorful addition to any concert. Duration: 2:13.
