Two traditional American folk hymns, Down to the River to Pray and Shall We Gather at the River, are creatively blended together in this outstanding anthem. Accessible choral writing delivers warm texture throughout as each song is first presented separately and then in tandem. Just as a river, the text flows gently above a simple yet supportive keyboard accompaniment.

This gentle paring of the popular "Down By the River to Pray" and "Shall We Gather By the River" has a gentle flow and a nice final verse that utilizes both melodies in a partner song setting.

The Bottom Line

Pros
Nice paring of 2 pieces with teachable parts and general appeal.
