Swing Low, Sing Low
Arr. Philip Kern
A brilliant pairing of two favorite spirituals by Philip Kern. It's a high energy setting of "When the Saints Go Marchin' In," incorporating two exciting and original counter lines, ultimately combined with the familiar strains of "Swing Low Sweet Chariot." A spirited knockout! Opens with an energized unison, drives through a lively two-part partner song section, features a stunning solo verse accompanied by a finger-snapping a cappella choir, and grows into a full singing, multi-theme, raise-the-roof finish. Surprisingly not difficult to sing with appropriate vocal ranges, tuneful counter lines, and straightforward harmonic writing. Awesome instrumental parts or SoundTrax CD are available. Featured on the new staging DVD/Video "On the Stage!" (DVD #23037, Video #23129).
