Dare I recommend one of my own arrangements? This romantic a cappella setting of the Southern folk hymn has more in common with the Paul Christiansen arrangement than the more “authentic” sounds of Alice Parker and other arrangers of this simply and quietly but builds to an intense climax with divisi parts. The piece a parts can easily be simplified into 4 parts. It has been successfully performed by high school, college, community and church choirs.
