Down in the River to Pray

With its emphasis on the simple choral sounds that undergird the melody, this stoic arrangement of the southern gospel hymn is a strong addition to the repertoire of a cappella works for mixed choir. Divisi men's chords and open fifths lay a strong foundation for the melody to shine. Accessible and rich sounding, this is a superb selection that can be used in worship settings, concert appearances and festival activities.
