Ain't Got Time to Die (Ain-a That Good News?) is an inventive pairing of two very popular spirituals, Ain't Got Time to Die and Ain't That Good News. Arranged by Philip Kern, Ain't Got Time to Die (Ain-a That Good News?) opens slowly with a grand, dramatic statement, then quickly shifts into a bright swing feel (be careful to "swing" the eighth notes!). Lively call-and-response in the voices and a playful accompaniment make this a joy to prepare and sing.
