for SATB unaccompanied
This spiritual is short, simple, and crisply written. It takes a small amount of adventure as the harmonies employed are sufficiently different from each other throughout the work, but it still treats the spiritual more or less traditionally. The texture is homophonic except for some syncopation in the lower voices, which works well for this style, and the result is a quick and sturdy arrangement of a spiritual that's fun to sing!
