With the current revival of interest in the Civil War brought on by the excellent PBS series, this song could be a very moving experience for the singer and listener alike. Very easy, yet very moving when performed well. There is another arrangement by Ralph Hunter in the JCPenny Bi-Cenntennial Music Collection. It is a major third lower and a little too long, in my opinion. The collection is gathering dust on a lot of shelves. If you own it, cut a verse out and try that arrangement. If not, give this one a try. I think it is a little bit better.
