This Ira Stanphill gospel standard is presented here as a feature for a Baritone or Bass vocal soloist backed with a TTBB Gospel Chorus (or Quartet) and Piano Accompaniment. Optional rhythm section parts are included for Guitar, Bass and Drums.
After an A Cappella, free rubato intro, things kick off at a livelier tempo in a style inspired by recordings by The Oak Ridge Boys over the years. None of the parts are very difficult or range-intensive: the high tenor only goes as high as a G above the bass clef and the Bass line hovers around the G at the bottom of the staff with some optional low D’s and C’s.
Included parts: there is a fully notated piano accompaniment part both freestanding and with Piano/Vocals/Chord symbols as well as with the TTBB vocals. An additional full vocal score is provided as is a free-standing TTBB vocal part. A single-line vocal solo lead sheet is also included giving many options for what’s best for your performers to use.
Performance option: The A Cappella introduction can be bypassed if desired, making for a fully up-tempo gospel swing tune. A fine addition to any worship or song service!
