This distinctive arrangement of the well loved American hymn was influenced by the music of the African American womens's a cappella group, Sweet Honey in the Rock. Three independant /interdependent treble lines are supported by a solid bass line sung by the second altos. Arranged in A/B/A fashion, the middle verse is given a more traditional homophonic hymn-like treatment.
This SSAA arrangement translates easily to mixed choir.
