This is a simple yet stunning arrangement of the captivating folk ballad popularized by the movie, O Brother, Where Art Thou? Jay Althouse has re-introduced its original text, quietly underscored by a haunting, Copland-esque keyboard accompaniment. After the ballad is sung in canon, it segues quite naturally into the traditional spiritual, Jesus Walked That Lonesome Valley. Easy to prepare, yet unforgettable for the entire church year, especially All Saints', Ash Wednesday, Eastertide and Lent, as well as school concerts and festivals. Available in 2 voicings.
