Description: This exuberant arrangement of the well-known spiritual is available in both 3 and 5 octave compatible versions. It opens with a staccato bass accompaniment for the familiar melody, rung by high treble. After transposition to a new key, the melody moves to the middle range with high treble staccato accompaniment and bass providing rhythmic marts and mart lifts. This is definitely an appealing arrangement for audiences and ringers alike.
Listen to the 5-octave version.
