Notes: The famous spiritual in a short and straight forward arrangement for two-part voices, including an evocative role for the piano. A good piece for children's and women's choirs, or two-part mixed voices. Composed in 1994. Deep River has been featured at choral reading sessions in the USA, (e.g. the 2014 WA ACDA Summer Institute).
Deep River, My home is over Jordan. Deep River, Lord. I want to cross over into campground.
Oh, don't You want to go, To the Gospel feast; That Promised Land, Where all is peace?
Oh, Deep River, Lord, I want to cross over into campground.
