9x12 inches. Traditional Spiritual.

You've never heard it like this before! A dramatic solo provides the powerful introduction before this hip spiritual arrangement kicks into a groovy jazz waltz. A call and response verse highlights individual sections of the choir (or soloists), and an ultra-cool transition builds and modulates into the final choral refrain. Great to perform with a jazz combo.

    Although this arrangement is intended for a women's choir, my friend and I did this as a duet. While I can read music, she can't, but the music is so intuitive, that she picked it up very quickly. I was very pleased with this piece -- we did it...

    in church with piano, bongo drums and tambourine as accompaniment. I highly recommend this piece!
