This Anthem is a traditional American song variously described as a Christian folk hymn, an African-American spiritual, an Appalachian song, and a Gospel song. It can be sung by a simple Gospel quartet, in a large Choral setting, or with a full Congregation. The message makes for a grand Processional Introit. .

    Because this arrangement has the same chordal structure in all the five verses, it was easy for my choir to learn it by heart (few reading music). You can create a mesmerising build up of volume and rhythmic intensity with this song, pulling the audience in like joining a procession...

    . I like the fact that the song was sung by the southern slaves to initiate an escape up or down the river, leaving no traces for the sniffer dogs.
