The melody has nearly a 2 octave range, so it is a good fit for this ensemble.  From the bass trombone pedal F, to upper bflat in the first and second parts, the three and a half octaves give strong players a chance to shine and provide a variety of timbres. The melody is shared by the first 3 parts.  The fourth part provides essential rhythmic and harmonic elements in support of the melody.  For anyone familiar with the original recording used in the Civil War documentary by Ken Burns, this song feels like it could have been a folk tune from a century ago. .
