Craig Hella Johnson has become well known for outside the box programming, composing and arranging. Here is another great example. This folk song written by Pete Seeger and Lee Hays in 1949 in support of the Progressive movement and later made popular by Peter, Paul and Mary is here arranged with a driving motif If I Had A Hammer by SATB divisi chorus. Hand percussion underpins this motif and the melody floats above. A powerful video of this by Conspirare lives on YouTube.
