Down By The Riverside

From Plank Road Publishing

adapted/arr. Paul Jennings

Our arrangement of this great old spiritual is ideal for the study of spirituals and for a celebration of African American History Month, but it is also a lively song that will be fun to sing at any time of the year.

For this arrangement, we have used an up-tempo gospel setting a bit modernized with the addition of our screaming wind section, blues guitar, and a gospel organ. It is arranged in a traditional "3-part mixed" voicing, but is also possible to sing the entire song in unison. To facilitate this, we have created a special unison part that works with the tracks.

The kit also includes rehearsal tracks for part 2 and part 3, and an a cappella version of all three parts. (from Music K-8, Vol. 15, No. 3)
