The entire story of Jesus' life on earth is included in this rousing arrangement of the American spiritual for voices and piano accompaniment. And what a celebration it is! From the standard hymn timbres, to the best of Gospel traditions, this setting offers two good solo opportunities, and a somber moment when it describes the week of the Crucifixion. Triumphant choral writing that can be effective in worship and on the concert stage. A marvelous encore as well.
