This great old spiritual has always been a favorite - a strong melody with lots of rhythmic interest. As this arrangement proves, it also works well for recorders, with the players wrapped in a richly powerful gospel setting that features an expanded rhythm section, big band, and strings.
As an especially poignant spiritual with lyrics that portray the strong emotions of slavery, this song can provide a great component for a unit on spirituals. What a great way to make music a strong part of cross curricular studies during African American History Month! (from Music K-8, Vol. 19, No. 3)
