In Celebration of the Human Voice - The Essential Musical Instrument

Down to the River to Pray

This time-honored spiritual is said to have contained coded messages for slaves wishing to escape through the Underground Railroad. Complementing the divine and collective nature of the piece are fully realized hand and body percussion parts; the song ending with a hushed whisper.
