for SATB and orchestra or piano This luscious arrangement opens with a wind and brass introduction. A flowing, gently rocking string background sets off the vocal line in the altos while the rest of the chorus sings 'oohs'. This makes the full chorus passage that comes afterwards particularly powerful. Orchestral material is available on hire.
Arranged by Mack Wilberg (b.1955)
"Mack Wilberg's lush and sympathetic arrangement of Deep River does everything that you could hope for from a setting of this well-known spiritual . . . Thoroughly recommended." - Tom Wiggall, Music Teacher, November 07
