Choir Sacred; Choir Secular (SATB choir)
Composed by Jay Althouse. Choral Octavo. Alfred Choral Designs. Sacred; Spiritual. 8 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.45598).

Item Number: AP.45598

This sturdy original is composed in the style of a traditional spiritual. A symbolic text leads to crossing metaphoric River Jordan as the music recalls songs from early America. Opens with brief solos, builds to a hand clapping, almost a cappella bridge, and concludes only after full choral harmonies fade and voices unite on a single pitch.
Contest/Festival.
