The accompaniment for this setting of the familiar American folk melody has a classical piano feel. And works beautifully with harpsichord. The spiritual is designed to flow along over the accompaniment without too much effort. The notes must be well in place before adding the keyboard. This anthem can be sung in church services, school or church concerts or with college groups. It also makes a very nice ensemble selection.

Part of the Youth Cue Series.

This piece has good bones, but there are moments of shift in tonality that do not completely develop. Still, there is a very nice final statement that is quite satisfying.

The Bottom Line

Cons
At times, this treatment of the familiar spiritual seems awkward due to momentary moments of major tonality here and there.
